welcome to the world kylie joy!

so... big news... i'm an aunt again! yippeeeee!

my 2nd niece was born at 8:36pm on july 15th. she came on her due date which i find amazing! she weighed in at 8lbs 2oz and entered this world with a full head of beautiful hair. no wonder her mommy had so much indigestion! :)

i spent a lot of time holding her last night and dreaming of my own little ones to hopefully come someday. i love the newborn stage. they're so tiny and innocent and soft and brand new. it's precious.

i love new life, but more importantly i love the giver of new life.

change, change and more change

i feel like i have so much that i need to post on. i keep meaning to, but time has been slipping away from me.

wow... where do i even start? the last week has been insane. last weekend i went down to dc to visit some of my ywam buddies. they're serving alongside jhop (justice house of prayer) doing 24/7 prayer and intercession. we spent about 10 hours a day in prayer and worship and it was amazing. God spoke so much to me about who i am and how i see myself. i got so much revelation!

i usually spend so much time worrying about the things i need to do for God instead of just being with him. God showed me that i need to make my time with him a priority and that out of that will flow everything else. it seems so simple, but it's been a hard lesson for me to understand. i tend to pour myself into the doing, hoping that through it i'll get more of the lord when the whole time he's sitting there waiting for me to just be with him.

on top of that this week the lord really began speaking to me more about africa. i really think he wants me to stay longer than the 2 weeks i had planned... 3 months more in fact. i'm working out all the details. i'm really excited though and i think it's going to be a very good thing. it's going to teach me more about trust and relying on the lord to get me through.

wow... so many thoughts going through my head... to many to write about this second.

oh yeah...

and i got a macbook this week.
