|Momma Shakira and little Shakira|
And little Gina went home to be with Jesus the other morning. For the most part, we stayed away from taking pictures of this sweet little girl. A physical body that is not doing well can be so vulnerable and personal and we wanted to maintain the dignity of this precious little girl. But this picture is perfect.... it captures the sweet personality of this precious little girl. ( c : Her story was a stretcher for me... but I am so thankful to know that at this very moment... she is FREE. Free from the disease that took her and with Jesus. Shortly before Gina breathed her last, her Dad accepted Christ. She left this world surrounded by those who cared and loved her and there is hope that they will all be reunited again. And that is awesome!
This little girl is FREE and while there is sadness, there is hope. Hope in the promises of our God. He is faithful, He is true, and He is sovereign. And this little girl is very much alive!
