New blog…

As our Crenshaw Crew is embarking on a new journey of adopting a child, I wanted to start a new blog.  I think I will end up switching all together, but I am still trying to figure it all out. I just wanted to get it worked out first before I say it is a “permanent” switch! 🙂  Anyway, I have been wanting to switch for a while, but I thought this timing is good so we can document all of the progress of our adopting the next Crenshaw child!  You can hear more about this road we are on…how we started and then throughout the process…how the Lord led us to this point, etc. through this blog.  Look around, see the scripture that God has laid on our heart as a family, and pray for us as we embark on the journey!   We are EXCITED to see what God is going to do!!!

Here you go…

I only have a couple of posts so far, but I will get it figured out…

Manly Things

I am so proud of Austin! It has been so neat to see him grow and change. God has given us SUCH a gift in him! As he grows up, we are praying that he is not launched from our house as a passive man. We are seeking God for wisdom on how to teach him and instill in him how to be a BIBLICAL man….one who “rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously, and expects God for the greater reward…” We have many great men around us to help instill these values…incredible, godly grandfathers, coaches, pastors, and BEST of all, his Daddy!

Here is a picture of the two of them just spending time together, doing something manly…making our shutters for our house! 🙂

Yesterday Olivia was not feeling well, and Austin piped in in the back seat and said, “Olivia, I am sorry that you don’t feel good. I wish I could be sick instead of you.” Sweet him, what a precious heart. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the blessing of raising this sweet boy!
