The Many Faces o' Anna

"the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat." -Exodus 25:20
More than just silly and smiley and sweet,
I pray that the face of my little angel will always be towards God's mercy seat.

My photographing phriend...

has so blessed us with an amazingly creative and beautiful family photo shoot time. And then so blessed us with a baby announcement. Here it be...(p.s. HIRE HER! She's starting her Captivating Photography business, ask me for more info on how to contact her!)

My prayer for my girl...

is that she would know my Great I AM God as this (spoken as only Nichole Nordeman could)...

Pencil marks on a wall
I wasn't always this tall,
You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed,
You watched my team win,
You watched my team lose,
You watched when my bicycle went down again,

And When I was weak unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said “Elbow healer, Superhero,
come if You can,” and You said “I am”

Only 16, life is so mean, what kind of curfew is at ten PM
You saw my mistakes, You watched my heart break
Heard when I swore I’d never love again

When I was weak, unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said “Heart-ache Healer, Secret-keeper,
be my Best Friend” and You said “I am”

You saw me wear white, by pale candlelight,
I said forever to what lies ahead
two kids and a dream, with kids that can scream
too much it might seem when it’s two AM

when I am weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name.
“Oh Shepherd, Savior, Pasture-maker,
hold on to my hand,” and You say “I am.”

The winds of change,
And circumstance blow in and all around
us so we find a foothold that’s familiar,
And bless the moments that we feel You nearer
Life had begun, I was woven and spun,
You let the angels dance around the throne, who can say when,
But they’ll dance again, when I am free and finally headed home

I will be weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name
“Creator, Maker, Life-sustainer,
Comforter, Healer, My Redeemer,
Lord and King, Beginning and
the End, I am, yes, I am.”

This is how He has been meeting me day by day, as my all-in-all I AM YOUR EVERYTHING GOD. And I so pray that my Anna girl comes to know Him at an early wee age also.
