5 Months.. Wait, What?!?

Kimmy LaMee

I have grown lots this month! I have two new teeth and I put just about everything in my mouth, even that silly chalkboard they make me take a picture with every month! I giggle lots and love it when daddy and mommy tickle my belly or make funny sounds. I've been busy this month going to preschool and hanging out with my friends. I love to help mommy water the garden each evening. I also love to sing! I'm starting to sit up on my own and before long I'll be crawling all over the place. I don't like it when mommy and daddy won't hold me and I usually let them know right quick that I'm not happy - but for some odd reason, they don't usually listen to me... oh well...  until next month! 

Ivey 

She is Yours, Lord!

Kimmy LaMee

iveydedication

We had a sweet time of dedicating Ivey to the Lord Sunday afternoon surrounded by friends and family members. As we prayed over her and read scripture together, I was once again reminded that Ivey is not ours... She was given to us for a time to train and teach and love and so much more, but she really belongs to The Lord. He created her. He knows her. He has her days numbered from beginning to end. He knows every hair on her head, and she has lots of that! 
This day was about promising to teach her about Jesus and committing our lives to the best of our ability to parent her in a way that brings God the most glory. It was also about committing with our friends and family together to support her, love her, and share Jesus with her in all things. 
I wish that I could see what Ivey's life will be like in 10 or 20 years from now. I wish I knew whether or not she would choose to follow Jesus, but I don't. All we can do as her parents is to train her in the way she should go... The rest is totally up to the saving grace and redemption of Jesus.  But we commit to do our part to share Jesus in all things, to teach her about His grace and mercy and forgiveness, to tell her of her deep need for a Savior and how apart from Christ she has no good thing to offer, and to model love and grace for all. And we are so very thankful for those who will be standing alongside of us and helping us in this blessing.

Oh Father, would you draw her heart to your heart? Would you give her a desire to know you and make you known among the nations? She is yours Lord.  Thank you for entrusting her to us. May we bring you glory as we parent her to know you!  May her roots be deep in you Lord and may her life be centered in you. May you give her a heart of joy and thankfulness in all things. 

4 months... WHAT?!?

I have been in this world for 4 whole months! That is just crazy!! You would think by now that my mommy and daddy would figure me out but they are still learning! I had a great time in Kentucky with my Aunt Hope and Uncle John and my Great Aunt & Uncle Fun. I especially loved meeting Uncle Fun with his fun beard! I was tempted to pull it all out one hair at a time - but I didn't. I loved driving up and back, although I got a bit squirmy on the way home. I also enjoyed my Aunt Angie and Savannah and Makenzie coming to visit, but man they wore me out! They took me to the zoo and to the children's museum and we even went swimming for the very first time. I'm not so sure about that cold water I just sat around in... weird! I love to eat and sleep and stay awake and play and of course talk, talk, and talk some more! 

3 Months in... Oh MY!

Kimmy LaMee

I'm 3 months old today and I'm quite a funny little gal! My mommy absolutely loves it when I'm loud and chatty in the mornings - NOT!  I get going really early, before the sun even comes up - but she doesn't come and get me! That's okay though - I'll just enjoy my party of one in my crib!!  I've learned how to break loose from that silly swaddle they wrap me up in.  {I'll show them, hahaha!}  I'm also rolling from my back to my side but I keep getting stuck! I love my bumbo chair and my bouncy swing, although I'm not real sure how to make that thing bounce. I'll get it though! I can't wait for next month when I get to see my Aunt Hope, Uncle John, and Aunt Susan and meet my Great Uncle Allee for the very first time on my very first road trip to Kentucky!!! 

when no one else is looking

Kimmy LaMee

Three times a day, the MPACT office, where I serve, stops to pray. We pray for our friends serving around the world and for our church planting partners, we pray for the local projects that I'm working on and our Refuge friends, we pray for lost friends and family members and so much more. We stop what we're doing, open up a brown cabinet that hides a white board that is FULL of requests and we just pray. At 8:30, 12:30 and 4:30, everyday. We've been doing this now for at least 6 months - I really can't remember when we started this but it has become one of my favorite times of my day.  Working part-time, I strive to be there for at least one of the prayer times each day to pray with my team. To hear them pray for our church and for what God has called us to do is quite amazing and challenging and humbling.

On Fridays though, our office is pretty quiet. Most of us have the day off and very rarely is anyone else there, besides Michelle, our AMAZING secretary. I often wondered what happened with our prayer times on Friday, until last week. I had ran up to the church to drop Ivey off at the preschool and thought I would run down to our office real quick to say hey. I walked in on what was probably the most challenging scene I've encountered lately - Michelle standing in front of the board, doors open, praying aloud over each item on the list - by herself.  I quickly joined her and prayed along side of her, starting my day of running errands off to the BEST start - in prayer.

As I was leaving, I began thinking - "What would I do if no one else was looking?!" You see - Michelle chose to stop her tasks, to take a few minutes and to pray - even when no one else would "know" the difference, even when no one else was there.  That was such a challenge to me! It spoke VOLUMES into my heart about the importance of being committed, and reminded me that it does matter what I do, even when no one else sees. 

So, thanks Michelle for being committed to prayer - even on Fridays, when no one else is there - and thanks for challenging my heart to be committed as well.
