pastor john + talitha

April 18, 2010

This past Saturday, Pastor John and Talitha attended our church’s Father-Daughter Tea.  Noel had the hard part of making Talitha’s dress, but I had the fun part of snapping some pictures of them before they left.  The sun was not helpful whatsoever, but here are a few of my favorite shots of the beautiful Miss Talitha and her dad.

Noel wasn’t invited to the tea, but it doesn’t mean she can’t be in at least one picture…

    LOVE the pics! Talitha is such a pretty girl! Love her beautiful smile and the pic where they are looking at each other. HOWEVER, we want to see a full picture of the dress that you made!!! Please? 🙂

    I see Love. Joy. Cheer. Fun. Pleasure. Beauty and Good Photography.
    Tis true here, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” What a blessing and inspiration you Pipers all to so many, including me. Thanks for posting these.

    As an asthetic aside, I like how you, Noel and/or Talitha (I bet I can safely assume that) coordinated Dr. Piper’s tie with Talitha’s lovely red dress.

    BEAUTIFUL! Will you make her wedding dress too (God willing?)? Looks like it (dress) turned out well!

    There are smiles and there are smiles but the smile on Talitha’s face shows not only that she loves her dad but that she loves God too. The investment that you have both made into her life is so evident in her smile. To God be the glory because the three of you make God look great! Thanks so much for sharing those photos with us.

    Love because of Jesus, Marcia

    Hi, I don’t usually comment on these things, but could not help myself this time. I’ve been following Noel’s site since the beginning and have been totally drawn to it. This is the way a family, followers of Christ, present themselves. I am grateful for the invite to look in and learn.

    I’ve been reading Dr. Piper’s books for years now and had the privilege to meet Noel briefly at EVBC church in AZ years ago. I’m drawn to her by the resemblance to my dear beloved mother. Noel is real, she loves the Lord, and she teaches by her actions. (esp. the hesitance in cutting the fabric).
    I enjoyed the Egyptian pics. Your entire family is a blessing to me. I thank God for all of you. May He continue to use the Piper family for your good, the good of others and for God’s glory. Thank you. Still smiling reading your e-mails, stories, photos.

    Thanks for this post, Jen! Talitha is such a truly beautiful girl, inside and out. I am so glad that you posted this so I could see her–she’s grown up so much!

    What a blessing to hear your story. As a mother of 4 sons, almost 20, 18 , almost 16, 14, our situation being a bit opposite in that it has been my husband who has longed to adopt a “daughter” or two and I have been the hesitant one.
    I feel that if God wants us to adopt a little girl, He will bring it all to pass. Being in the pastoral ministry staff we are not financially well off so it would definitely have to be a God thing. May God continue to use your family to draw others closer to him. Blessings to you and your beautiful family and thank you once again for sharing a part of your life with others. Christina (Cathedral City, Ca.)

    Noel! Your daughter is beautiful!! What a lovely smile and such bright eyes! I am so glad I found your site while trying to figure out
    how to send you a letter from Henry (and me). I hope you and John get to read the letter! And I hope you get to come to Brazil.
