what the what?!

These last several months have been both crazy and beautiful. I've learned so much about myself, who He is shaping me to be, and what I'm doing.

A baby will cause time to both slow down and speed the frick up! It needs to stop. I love watching my sweet daughter experience life and grow, but I want to cherish each change--and I want time to stop while this happens. I want to soak it all in and bask in it.

On Mother's Day, we had the opportunity to dedicate little Harper to the Lord--we declared in front of friends and family that we would raise her in a home that would point her toward Jesus in all things. If that isn't convicting, I don't know what is! It's humbling to know that our house is the first church she will ever know, and I pray that we would love her with His love overflowing from our hearts.

Harper needs to know that I'm a sinner. I am imperfect and broken. She needs to see that the Lord loves me for me. She also needs to know that His Grace covers a multitude of sins. I pray over her sweet soul, overcome by His love, in awe that her soul MATTERS to Him.

When I cradle her in my arms, I often stare at her. I stare at her sweet face and kiss on her, reflecting of the unconditional love from our heavenly Father. I stare at all of the little hairs on her head--overwhelmed by the number, only to realize that He has already numbered them. I stare at her precious eyes, praying that they will see Jesus.

Though I know I make mistakes, I am grateful for this journey of motherhood. God is already teaching me so much in these first few months. I know there is so much more to come!
