Walk Walk Walk!

Here is a video of Elijah walking...it was taken right after he first started. He is now walking all over the place and usually walks, not really crawling anymore unless he needs to chase his older cousins!

Sweet Victory!

David, Elijah and I spent the last two weekends out in Hasting at family camp. During one of the last services we sang Victory in Jesus and it really touched my heart. Its an older song but it sure is powerful. Here are the lyrics:

I HEARD AN OLD,
OLD STORY
HOW A SAVIOUR CAME
FROM GLORY
HOW HE GAVE HIS LIFE
ON CALVARY
TO SAVE SOMEONE LIKE ME

I HEARD ABOUT
HIS GROANING,
OF HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD'S
ATONING
THEN I REPENTED
OF MY SIN
AND WON THE VICTORY

OH, VICTORY IN JESUS,
MY SAVIOUR FOREVER
HE SOUGHT ME
AND HE BOUGHT ME
WITH HIS REDEEMING BLOOD

HE LOVED ME
ERE I KNEW HIM
AND ALL MY LOVE
IS DUE HIM
HE PLUNGED ME TO VICTORY
BENEATH THE
CLEANSING FLOOD

I HEARD ABOUT HIS
HEALING,
OF HIS CLEANSING POW'R
REVEALING
HOW HE MADE THE LAME
TO WALK AGAIN
AND CAUSED THE
BLIND TO SEE

AND THEN I CRIED
"DEAR JESUS,
COME AND HEAL
MY BROKEN SPIRIT"
AND SOMEHOW JESUS
CAME AND BROUGHT
TO ME THE VICTORY

OH, VICTORY IN JESUS,
MY SAVIOUR FOREVER

A little behind!

So its been a while since I last blogged so I thought I better do some updating on here! We have been quite busy at the Coffey household experiencing new things. Elijah and I go to the library every week and get new books. He loves to listen to them. Eli is enrolled in the summer reading program and this week he finished the first level and got a cute little pirate ducky (He picked it out of the bin!)

.

We also went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago and Elijah LOVED looking at all the animals. I don't think he quite understands the whole animal thing but he loved looking at everything.


We also went camping for the first time and stayed in our tent. It fits our queen size air mattress and Elijah's pack and play perfectly in it with a little extra room to spare.

Elijah also had his first trip to Family Camp out at Hastings Winding Creek Campground. That was a lot of fun and he got to play a lot with his Coffey Cousin's! (Xavier learned to ride his bike with out training wheels!) Elijah has also accomplished something new...taking steps! He has taken five at the most during a try! He is getting there. Soon he will be walking. One of his favorite things to do is once he gets up to the standing position is clap...another new thing he learned... he does it every time, its so cute! David has been picking black raspberries, and tonight he is picking some blueberries..YUM!

We have taken Elijah down to the farmers marker in Holland on Saturdays and Wednesdays and that is a lot of fun. He loves looking at everything and I enjoy the fresh cut flowers for my kitchen counter. :)
