Say Love from Candace Chaney on Vimeo.
Meet Holly and Peter with their new baby, Abram. Ten years ago, I was just like Holly minus the adorable dimples and spotless house. Being new clients, I had never met them before but as I walked into their country home, Peter and Holly loving on baby Abram and their puppy Sage was a sort of time machine to me. Ten years ago, Jack and I were doing the same things on little sleep and lots of love.
Lord knows I haven't gotten it all right in the motherhood department over these past years, but I have known Love as the Sustainer, the Food, the thing you live on when "the days aren't easy and the nights are rough."

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Lift up your eyes, your help comes from the Lord. Love.
