Another one of our beloved West traditions for fall, is our annual cotton picture. We love to compare photos from years past, to see how each child has grown and changed. I found myself scouring folders upon folders of my precious little ones....I could literally sit for hours remembering the treasured times our family has shared through the years. God has abundantly blessed us. We started this tradition, among others, when we first moved to Jackson 7 years ago. Here are all of our cotton babies beginning from the very first picture in 2008 when we only had two tykes.







Days like these, where I am blessed with time to blog and reminisce, I am extremely humbled at God's generosity and favor on my life! Although I am not always as diligent as He commands and I let my emotions dictate my contentment, I am thankful that His word promises His mercies are new every morning! (Lamentations 3:22-23)

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:
“Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.
“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
~ Deuteronomy 28:1-6
