All my lifelong I had panted
For a drink from some cool spring.
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.

Hallelujah He has found me.
The One my soul so long has craved
Jesus satisfies my longings.
Thro' His blood I now am saved.

Feeding on the filth around me
Till my strength was almost gone.
Longed my soul for something better
Only still to hunger on.

Poor I was and sought for riches
Something that would satisfy.
But the dust I gathered 'round me
Only mocked my soul's sad cry.

Well of water ever springing
Bread of life so rich and free.
Untold wealth that never faileth
My Redeemer is to me.

Last week I took Daphney to her first day at Covenant Preschool! What a sweet time! I felt a bit old getting her ready, eating breakfast, putting a mega bow in her thin baby hair, sitting in carpool line, and then watching her climb the steps without me. She absolutely loves going. She comes home talking about her friends and anticipates going the next day! Before I know it I will be sending her off to real school. O, how I love her!

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Hebrews 10:23

Two Peas in a Pod

As usual...... what a busy week! The past few days Daphney and I enjoyed some quality time together. Two separate nights we strolled and shopped at the Renaissance until closing time. We had a dinner date at 5 Guys that was wild. Daphney drank a whole coke and then proceeded to entertain the wait staff and customers with her awesome dance moves. Thursday we got to meet our teachers, classmates, and parents at Covenant preschool. We followed up the meet and greet with some swimming at the Haber's. Yesterday mommy bought a road bike.... with hopes of doing some triathlons in the near future. Finally, tonight we enjoyed fun with friends at Bright Lights Belhaven Nights! Daphney got a tattoo, decorated cookies, danced to some live music, and met lots of new friends! The weather was awesome and time with friends was even better!

"You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done." -Psalm 92:4

A Little C.S. Lewis

“If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desire not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, we are like ignorant children who want to continue making mud pies in a slum because we cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a vacation at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

Fun with Greer & Covenant Children

We were blessed to have a sweet friend come play with us on Saturday! Greer and Daphney had such a wonderful time! We can't wait for our next play date! Today we had some fun with all the kids at Covenant. Nothing like water slides and watermelon to finish off the weekend!!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17
