My Girl

I'm sure most of you have known for a little while that we are naming our little girl:


I have been wanting to write this post for awhile now and I've been trying to get the words out. Jared and I have loved the name Lucy since the beginning but I wasn't sold on the name until one day I decided to look up the meaning.

Bringer of Light -- is what the website said that it meant

Wow - how powerful! I wanted our little girl to have a powerful and meaningful name and I pray this one suits her just perfectly.

I was at Beth Moore's bible study on Deuteronomy - the law of love- a couple weeks ago and she said the best thing we can do as mommies and daddies is to first off "love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind." I hope that Jared and I can live that out for her each day.

Since naming her, I have also loved praying specific things for Lucy and over her little life. It's not as if she wasn't real before, but having her name makes it seem more real to us. I have loved reading Philippians 2 and praying this over her:

"Shine like the stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life."

My prayer for my precious daughter Lucy is she will love her God and she will shine like the stars. Would you join us in praying for her?
