Photo Hunters - Protect(ion)



were hunting for a photo of "protect(ion)" this week. Immediately, for me, something came to mind.

Photo Hunters - Protect(ion)







See that look of determination? He's saying it with his face. He wants to make sure you know: "This is my sister. You want to mess with her? You'll need to mess with me first."

He is her big brother even if it is by only four months. He has built a strong hedge of protection around her, always looking out for her. If you're leaving, you better have said goodbye to her first. Are you giving out something, he'll make sure she gets her share. Are we going somewhere? She's coming along, right? Thinking of playing a game? Let's see what she wants to do first. He loves her with a fierce, loyal, protective love. And she loves him right back. The feeling is mutual.

They weren't brother and sister until they became members of our family. Had never laid eyes on each other until they were moved to the care center where they'd spend six months together waiting for us to come get them and bring them home. God knit their hearts together in ways that I know are nothing short of mysterious and miraculous.




Drop by for a look at more "protect(ion)".
