trishadavis23 Well... I did it! Or he did it. Parent/student orientation complete.
I'll be honest, I was nervous about today since I've cried every night this week missing this boy.
But my prayer all along in this season of letting go, has been that God would help me celebrate with @micahedavis in this next chapter of his life. I'm grateful God answered my prayers.
Leaving with a full heart and... maybe just a few tears! #Parenting #College #CherishedDays

trishadavis23 Doing some evening writing at Starbucks while my youngest is at football practice. Writing is hard when you're emotionally spent. But the view is perfectly peace-filled and the weather is soul-lifting. #Grateful #GoldenHour 3d

trishadavis23 It's #nationaldogday and apparently drop your first born off at college day too, so this picture seems fitting.
I get to go back Saturday for parent/student orientation so I didn't have say my final goodby. But knowing @justindavis33 won't be able to come back with me, the three of us bawled our eyes out.
We know joy comes in the morning but right now we are letting our grief flow as a father and son say goodbye to one chapter and hello to the next. WE LOVE YOU @micahedavis #College #CherishedDays #PROUDPARENTS

trishadavis23 So obviously from the light coming into the restaurant, we thought Jesus was on his way back as we ate our last super together as a family of five for the next few weeks. #CherishedDays 5d

trishadavis23 When life gets hard, it's easy to loose sight of a loving God who is fighting WITH you and FOR you.
My prayer for you today is that you will be reminded to stand firm in knowing we have a God who is the fountain of life, the light by which we SEE. He is pouring out his unfailing love on those who love him and he gives JUSTICE to those with honest hearts.

Claim this truth for your life, your spouse, your kids, your friends today! #RefineUs

trishadavis23 Distress that drives us to God does that. It turns us around. It gets us back in the way of salvation. We never regret that kind of pain. But those who let distress drive them away from God are full of regrets, end up on a deathbed of regrets.
And now, isn’t it wonderful all the ways in which this distress has goaded you closer to God? You’re more alive, more concerned, more sensitive, more reverent, more human, more passionate, more responsible. Looked at from any angle, you’ve come out of this with purity of heart.
2 Corinthians‬ ‭7:10-13‬ ‭MSG‬‬ . . .
Distress is the conduit of transformation as we draw close to Jesus and find HEALING in him!

trishadavis23 With the news that @micahedavis basketball team is moving in on Wednesday instead of Friday we are soaking-up all the family time we can get.

Tonight Micah had my phone (because I didn't have pockets) and I found this jewel in my photo library. ️ . . .
This season is so hard to explain. I have so much to be proud of when it comes to my boys. Micah loves the Lord and his family, graduated with a 4.0 from a academically tough school and received a scholarship to college. I mean so much to be proud of!! . . .
But the missing and the letting go brings forth an ache so unfamiliar and hard I've struggled to catch my breath. The missing is so real. But in all of it, I've heard Jesus whisper over and and over again "He's ready. Let him fly and I promise I will be with you AND him through it all" And you know what? I believe him.

My prayer for you tonight, no matter what season of life you may be struggling with, is to hear Jesus whisper those same words to you... and that you would believe him. #CherishedDays

trishadavis23 I can't even tell you how much I've LOVED having this one around to take in sunsets, football games and way to much Mexican food over the past couple of weeks, knowing he leaves for college NEXT FRIDAY!! . . .
Today we are moving him into his dorm a week early since he has to be there all day for a basketball camp. I'm grateful we have him home for a couple more days but this whole leaving thing is getting real!! I'm going to cope by squeezing in as much Mexican food and fun times as possible!! #College #ClassOf2015 #CherishedDays

trishadavis23 When our family moved to #Zionsville in 2006 to put our marriage and family back together, we found a church and joined our very first small group where we met the King family.
Oh the stories our small group could tell! The amount of laughter, spiritual growth and devastating circumstances we went through in our time together has forever bonded our hearts.
Today we got to pick-up where we left off talking with compassion and conviction about how to reach all people with the love of Christ!
Ali is the executive director for Central Indiana Youth For Christ, and she continues to blow-me-away with her passion to empower students in and around the Indianapolis area!! . . .
@itslauriellen Is taking a year off from college to basically go change the world as she spends her time on the mission field in three different countries!! I'm so fired-up after spending time with them!! These women truly are #WorldChangers and it's a privilege to call them friends!!

trishadavis23 A month ago today we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary! And to go along with our celebration, I created #CountDownTo20Years post counting down 20 lessons we've learned over those 20 years. Your response to these posts have been amazing!!! . . .
Today's final post is my favorite because it has changed the course of my life. It's a quote from our book that has been shared over 100,000 times (via social media) which leads me to believe it's a topic that resonates with you too. . . .

#20. Forgiveness doesn't excuse their behavior, it prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.
F O R G I V E N E S S = Freedom
F O R G I V E N E S S = Transformation
F O R G I V E N E S S = Healing
When you forgive, the person who hurt you doesn't win - CHRIST wins. He wins another part of your heart. When you forgive, you allow Christ to have not only more of your heart but more of your marriage.
Where forgiveness lives, intimacy is restored! #BeyondOrdinary #RefineUs
