getting to know the Holy Spirit

Lately I have been hungering for a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit. Just seeking Him this last 2 months have been pretty exciting for me. Nothing particularly amazing has happened, but a definate new revelation of who I am in Christ is starting to present itself, amongst other things.

Today at church my friend Chrissy shared her Top 10 list of "why we need Holy Spirit filling". Every single point was so great that I wanted to share it! These aren't in any particular order.

Top 10
Why we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit
10. TO PROTECT & GUIDE US
9. TO CONVICT US WHEN WE SIN
8. TO HEAL
7. TO BE SET APART
6. FOR COMPANIONSHIP / COMFORT
5. HOPE
4. JOY & PEACE
3. TO OVERCOME THE ENEMY
2. TO TEACH US...COUNCIL US (give us words, wisdom, discernment)
1. TO REVEAL GOD TO US...HIS MISTERIES...HIS TRUTH

Do your ears hang low?

Aunt Katy bought David this elephant for Christmas. And why do we own a giant ear? Just one of the perks being married to Jason I guess.

Celebrating David's first year!

Today, Jason and I are celebrating and reflecting on our little miracle. The doctors said he wouldn't make it, but David is continuing to grow and show us that God answers prayer! Happy Birthday little man. You are pure JOY!


From 1 pound, 8 ounces to 14 pounds, 3 ounces!


So many babies!
Attempt baby picture...
Attempt again?
The little guy to the right, Gunnar, was born at 1 pound, 9 ounces and in the NICU with David.
Cameron likes to tug on David's ears.
Jason's big "yeah" at the end scared him.




I'm trying to keep him up till daddy get's home to give him his birthday kiss. It's getting late!
He makes it! Barely!
David is over-tired but gets to spend a couple minutes with his daddy before bed.
