Cooper's Newborn Pictures

My sweet mama helped me take these when Cooper was just 5 days old. They are nothing close to what my dear friend Chelsie could do, but I was pretty happy with the way they turned out.

It's hard to believe how much he has grown since then!

Shine, Jesus, Shine

Anyone remember this old song? What's this from, maybe the 90's? :o) Well it's on one of Molly's Praise Baby dvds, and the other day I heard it with a different heart and replaced just a few words...

Shine, Jesus shine. 
Fill this home with 
your Father's Glory.
Blaze, Spirit, blaze.
Set our hearts on fire.
Flow, River, flow.
Flood this family 
with grace and mercy.
Send forth your Word. 
Lord, and let there be light. 

A perfect prayer. The desire of my heart for our family and home.

original song by Graham Kendrick, 1987



I can't tell you how many times I've typed and re-written this post. I just deleted about 5 paragraphs worth because I realized I'm just blubbering at the mouth. 

I've been feeling the need for some change. The span of this need across my life is so vast that it's difficult to sum it all up in one post (hence me taking so long to finish it). 

The speaker at church last Sunday really hit home for me when he said this:

We need to narrow our lives until Jesus becomes our everything.

Actually, that sums it up pretty well. :) 

Change can be good. These changes are good.

I'm narrowing. 

I'm laying it down. 


Instagram = my new blog

I'm partially kidding, but that's how it seems lately. 
I've had so much that I've been meaning to blog about, but turns out having two kids keeps me pretty busy. :)

So follow me on instagram (adavis356) for a better clue of what's going on in our lives!

ps--did you know that you don't have to have a smartphone/ipad?
