May and June 2010: Felicity at 3 Months

At 3 Months, Felicity: 
definitely had her Daddy's eyebrows
loved to be held by her brothers
started to fill out {love the wrist creases:-) }

still slept in her carseat, but a challenging sleeper
went to her 1st neighborhood party

loved to be with her brothers and they with her

loved snuggling up with Grandma
still made us think she would have blue eyes

loved playing on her playmat and swatting at toys
loved smiling at Mommy and following her with her eyes
loved watching the ceiling fan

April and May 2010: Felicity at 2 Months

At 2 Months Felicity:
loved her changing table
still wore NB clothes
let her Mommy attach bows to her head with caro syrup

had lots of people who loved her
liked to smile
loved her pacifier
wore her first shoes which Mommy dressed up

loved our walks, slept most of the time:-)
slept in her carseat and through the night for the 1st time

needed to be held all the time, no substitutes
wore her 1st bathing suit at Grandma's
loved her GG

Nor Things to Come

Romans chapter 8 has been a favorite of mine ever since I can remember.  I go to it time and time again for words of comfort and for words of courage!  Each time it seems that Heavenly Father is speaking to me, almost in a new voice with new words.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose...
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...
NAY, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, ...nor things present, nor things to come... 
Shall be able to separate us from the LOVE of GOD, which is in Christ Jesus of Lord. 
Romans 8:28, 35, 37-39 (emphasis added)
In a recent phone conversation with my cousin Karlee, she read back to me a letter that I had written her years ago in which I had quoted this scripture.  It was a strange feeling hearing my own words read. Of course most of them weren't my own, but the Lord's.  As she read these scriptures the words "nor things to come" really struck my soul.  More than ever I have been carrying around fear in my heart, fear for things to come.  Heavenly Father was speaking comfort to my soul through these words, that whatever may be approaching on the horizon, it will not separate me from His love.  The other half of this equation is that I cannot let it do so.  I must not allow whatever comes to cause me to separate myself from His love.

We may have heard many times, "that all things work together for good to them that love God", but I had not given much notice to the words that follow, "to them who are called according to his purpose."  I have been called to this purpose, HIS purpose.  I am not sure what it is yet, but I know He has one.  I pray that I will slowly begin to see what it is and that I will remember His promise, that it will work together for good.

As I look at this photo of Mike as Felicity's champion as she takes her first steps, I see joy in the present and I see hope in our future.  That is truly the Love of God manifest in our lives.
