Completely breath taking and such a miracle. I am praying for both of your girls daily and asking God to bring Tricia's new lungs soon. Have a most blessed Easter, the three of you. He is Risen!!

Love, Laurie in Ca.

This is by far one of my favourite pictures that you have ever shared with us.

God is holding that little hand in His just as He is holding tight to you and Trish too. Continuing to pray for your family. Excited to see what God has planned for each of you!!

Your blog is a ministry to so many.

Happy Easter!! He is Risen!!

Mrs. Wilson said...

Oh my word! She's SO tiny. And perfect.

melissa said...

What a great picture. You can really see how she's grown and filled out a bit since she was born. She is so strong and has two strong parents as wonderful examples.

ajc4ever said...

Wow! Truly indescribable...our Creator is simply amazing!

Rebecca said...

That's amazing. It's also amazing to realize that she wasn't even due to be BORN until April 25ish, right? (You told me in late December, but I can't remember the specific April date.)

Karen said...

Michelle said...

Absolutely beautiful! That picture needs to be up in Tricia's room! And you should enter it in a photo contest. You would win hands down (no pun intended)!

Beautiful.

Cathy Jo said...

Speechless...

Jane-Jane said...

if you had a size 4.5 ring finger like me, than she would be REALLY growing....but I'm guessing you are like most men and wear over a size 10!

thanks for the pic!

praying for a breath of fresh air for you Tricia...and for the donor family too. Lord, please hear our prayers!

swahilimama said...

Wow! That's amazing. I saw the video with your finger holding her hand, but this gives a better perspective of her tinyness. (It's not a word, so I can't misspell it, right?) She is truly a miracle. Praying for you all. Have a wonderful Easter as we celebrate the risen Savior.

Kathryn said...

She is growing like a weed! What beautiful fingers she has! God's Peace.

Bonnie Hunt said...

Wow, I love that picture like the others have said it really does capture what a mighty God we serve. It reminds me of a friend whose little one came almost as early as Gwyenth, he could put his wedding band over his little ones hands and all the way up to his shoulder. That child grew with nothing holding him back. A true witness to the God we serve.

Debra said...

What an awesome picture!

Amy said...

Julie Nickerson said...

unbelievable!!!

Heather Paulsen said...

Wow! Amazing.

Have you thought about taking a picture with Trisha's wedding ring on Gwyenth's left hand? We did that with out boys (my husband's ring on their left ring finger) It's amazing how big they get so fast!

Have a blessed Easter!

He is RISEN INDEED!

I am a photographer also and I love that picture! That is one of those pictures that will be a keepsake a memory forever.

JonesFam4 said...

Oh. Breathtaking.

nicole said...

she is still so tiny, but from my strictly virtual perspective, it looks like that wedding ring definitely wouldn't get around her hand anymore as it seemed to so easily when she was born...gwyneth you are amazing! happy first Easter, sweet girl!

Candi said...

I'm a sucker for hand pictures----and that one is awesome!!

Cara said...

It's amazing to see her perfectly formed, teeny tiny hand. Still praying for ya'll daily.

Also, you wouldn't BELIEVE the number of people who have talked to me about your blog lately! Knowing that I have CF too, everyone I know seems to be reading your blog and wanting to tell me all about it. :)

agmwilliams said...

That is definitely a prize-winning photo...I have no clue if there are contests for preemie photos, but I'm sure this would be a winner for photography in general. Beautiful!

Carol said...

Such beautiful hands.

Debbie said...

So tiny & precious

Gretchen said...

Oh...that is beautiful. Something about daddies and girlies always makes me weak.
Thank you for sharing that; it's really beautiful.

Jenn said...

Beautiful, just beautiful. Still continuing to pray that both your girls will come home soon. And I pray Tricia will get her Transplant on this blessful day.

Nathan, can you do me a favour? I just found out from my friend that his baby isn't doing to well. The baby is still in it's mother's womb and we just learned that he/she has spina bifida, and has no bladder, no kiddnies and is missing a heart valve (sp). Could you please pray that my friend's wife will carry to term and that the baby will be ok. It just breaks my heart to know that my friend might loose his first child.

Thank you. Sincerely Jenn
