Perfect Imperfection

It is late and I can't quite get to sleep tonight.  Our AC has decided to quit on a Saturday night in the middle of summer. So, here is my late night ramble. :)

Did you know that a dimple is really a deformed muscle?  Look at this face...

Amazing isn't something so cute, is scientifically considered to be deformed or imperfect.  I can't imagine Baylor without her dimple.  It's part of what makes her, her.  In my eyes, she's beautiful. Perfect. She is perfectly imperfect. :)  

I am imperfect (shocking...I know ;), but in Christ I have been made new and perfect.  I am so thankful He doesn't see me through the eyes of man, but through HIS eyes.  He has a deeper love for me than I can ever imagine, he has a perfect plan for my life, and to Him I am fearfully and wonderfully made. But not just me.  We all are.

So let science have their theories, the world have their opinions, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:17-Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"  21-"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."

Psalm 36:5- "Your love oh Lord, reaches to the Heavens, your faithfulness to the skies."

John 3:16-"For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life."

Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

Psalm 139:14- "I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full."

Joshua 24:15- "But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Catching Up

Summer is here and is as exciting as anticipated!  I have started my new part time job and am LOVING it!  The owners of the house we are renting have SOLD the house which means we have to be out by June 27th (which is also the same week Colby has his soccer camp, yikes!), but on the flip side we have a contract on our potential new house, woo-hoo!!!!  We are still gearing up for Africa starting July 19-29 and Baylor has her SECOND, I repeat SECOND birthday coming up!  How is she already two!?!?

Colby and I have been SO blessed with an amazingly generous and selfless lifegroup (sunday school) at our church.  2 years ago I remember crying after visiting churches, which were perfectly fine,but none which felt like "home" thinking I would never find a church that felt like the close knit church I came from.  But God, as usual, blessed us more than we could ever imagine, and we are thankful for them daily.  So, thanks guys for being so awesome! :)

Baylor is crazy, hilarious, cute, funny, fearless, and sweet as usual.  She is so blessed with a multitude of family that love her so much and cousins that are so fun and the sweetest things to watch together.  For her birthday this year we are going to go with a Cookie Monster - Milk and Cookies dessert theme.  Since we won't have a house of our own yet to have her birthday party in we are going to have it at "The Grove" which will probably be more fun anyway! :) I had several cute pics and videos to upload, but my computer is not cooperating so for now, here is the one I got.

It's hot out there guys...stay cool!
