Wednesday's Walk - First time

This is my first time participating in "Wednesday's Walk" on the Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground blog.

This blog will be about my sweet angel, Landan.

He was such a charismatic boy, his mere presence would light up a room! He was loved by so many & is now loved by many - across the world! It's quite touching to our family!

But today I want to remember his "photography skills" It was always a pleasant surprise to find these "self photography" images for Landan on my camera. Now it's even more of a treasure. He left me with sweetest pictures. The images that follow, aren't just self portraits of Landan, but things about him I don't want to forget.

I remember countless nights watching Landan sleep, thanking God for giving me this precious little boy that I love with all my heart. Asking God to please never take him from me & to let me go before him. I looked upon him in amazement that this handsome little boy is MY son!

I miss watching him sleep.
Landan LOVED video games! And man-o-man was he great at them! We were always amazing by how smart he was! He'd watch someone do something, and you could almost see the gears turning in his head figuring things out. His favorite video game was "Mario Sunshine" for the GameCube. In the beginning he'd call me in the bedroom to do certain things for him. But soon got to a point where he didn't need his Mama to help him. He was better than me at that game! lol He'd just go right in the bedroom, turn on the GameCube & get his game started!

I miss watching him play.

Self portrait of Landan below, how precious. He's such a goofy little guy.

I miss finding his self portraits when I upload camera pictures.

Another photo, courtesy of Landan. It's of his sweet little foot. Man I loved to munch on those sweet little feet.

I miss everything from the tootsies on your feet, to a single straind of hair on your beautiful little head.
I miss your crazy blonde hair! It grew so quickly & you still had the sweet little curls at the ends of your locks.

I miss running my fingers through your blonde hair.

Oh, dear one, I'm visiting your site for the first time, and my heart is broken for you. What an angel you had and now have forever! I am praying even at this moment for peace, and blessing, and comfort throughout this storm in your life, and am asking Him to flood your lives with memory-making opportunities with Layne, as well.

Blessings abundant on you all,

Lolli (aka Lisa:

Cute pictures! Thank you for sharing Landan with us, what a sweet little boy.

Sarah Robbins said...

That is so cute! It's like God knew ahead of time you would need those pictures and so he had Landan take them. He sounds like such a special boy. Thank you for sharing.

I can't even begin to imagine how much you miss him! Your pictures are so special, what a beautiful boy.

What a beautiful boy your Landan was,.. and is, his heavenly home.

My heart aches for you and your loss. We still miss our sweet granddaughter Anna who went to be with Jesus 4 years ago last November. She was 6.

I am happy that you have Layne, and he is adorable too.

I am glad you could join in my daughter Lynnette's Wednesday's Walk. if anyone can truly understand your pain,...she could.

Have you read her book which tells of their journey through loss? It is posted on her blog, and it tells of God's Faithfulness through it all. I think you would find much encouragement there.

I am glad you joined us today.
God Bless You!

Hi, found you through Lynnette's. Your story breaks my heart, but I'm so thankful you have such amazingly sweet pictures of Landon to treasure. It's almost like he knew he'd only be here briefly and wanted to make sure you had precious pictures of him - from his head to his toes! Landan was a beautiful little boy. Absolutely beautiful.

how special to find his pictures on your camera! I am new to visiting your site and so saddened by your story while thankful that God cares about everything we go through. Thanks for sharing pictures of your precious little guy with us.

Lynnette Kraft said...

Oh Lacey, your little Landan is precious and my heart is so deeply touched. I can totally relate to all that you said in your post. I miss all those precious little things about my daughter.

I'm so glad to have you join us for Wednesday's Walk and it's a pleasure to meet you and your family today.

Your post truly blessed me and made me hurt for you.
