Ansley cruised (walking while holding onto something. Couch, coffee table, wall etc) the entire length of the couch and back today! I really can't help but laugh everytime I see those little legs moving. Step..step..step.. It makes our hearts burst with joy!
Zachary and Ansley both love playing in the water, and since it has been OUTRAGEOUSLY hot outside, it's the only way to go!
A little water table fun
Zachary is at the age where he could care less that he is in a pink princess pool : )
But, he makes up for it by doing manly things like "washing" the car
Our little fish
One of Ansley's obsessions is playing with Zachary's (toy) cell phone.
She is so giddy and excited when she gets away with it. Until...
1 Peter 5:8 "Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. "
He wants to stop this. He does not want us praying for God to show His power and he will do anything he can to "steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10) us. You can easily identify spiritual warfare by John 10:10. Does a thought steal, kill or destroy you? Or does it give you life? The good news is we have the power, through Jesus Christ, to make evil flee.
James 4:7 "..resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
Literally, since we hit 'publish' on our last post to ask you to join us in praying for Ansley to take her first steps before her next appt, we have been under a lot of warfare. In the past three nights, every night, Ansley has been awake anywhere from 3-4 hours screaming, crying, babbling and just not sleeping. Zachary, Rob and myself have been having nightmares and it has been absolutely exhausting. It is obvious.
Thank you again for your prayers and unbelievable support. It means so SO much to us. Keep praying for our little girl to arise in the name of Jesus and WALK!!
