Childish....

Lately I have been thinking alot about the word childish...I have been praying for myself alot out of 1 Cor. 13, the love chapter...asking God that I would have authentic, genuine love for Him, my family and others...the bottom part of that chapter in vs. 11 it says "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me."...and I often pass that part over focusing on love...but this last week the Lord has really shown me areas in my life that I walk in childishness...be it in my relationship with my husband, Jayk, family or even friends...and honestly it has left me embarassed and just desperate that God would teach me and deliver me from childish ways...childish thoughts that are unture, childish comments that are not encouraging at all, childish responses...etc..just childishness in general...I want to walk in maturity with God and with others...Maturity with God believing who he says I am and maturity to trust him in all my ways...I want this maturity...not just to be a better person but to honor him...that my attitude would be the same as Christ...Maturity in my attitude and in my ways will bring honor to him because apart from him and his spirit I am childish...

Growing up 9months old...

Our little man is growing up...crawling everywhere in our condo...we are definately learning the art of redirection...steering him clear of wires, plugs, and anything else that would cause him harm...the funny thing is that he has been pulling up on everything and anything and everything that is reachable...some things have proven not to be able to carry his weight and he has fallen on his little rear...watching him has been one of the greatest joys of my life...to watch his litte mind work and little body try to pull himself up, but at the same time the Lord has been using his new adventures to speak to my heart...when Jayk was pulling up on something the other day that wouldn't carry his weight it was like the Lord spoke to my heart "Kay you grasp thing that don't hold you"...and I have been thinking about this alot...the only firm foudation for me, for anyone is Christ all the other things I try to hold onto won't "carry my weight"...so for the past few days I have been meditating on this...asking God to help me not hold onto things that won't hold me...He is the rock...

Memories...

One of my sweetest memories growing up was going with my grandma on Friday's to the beauty shop...I loved it and it was just part of the routine...I would go with her in her big blue cadi and sit with her while she got her hair cut and then put up in rollers...then she would go sit under the big blow dryer and let the rollers dry and her hair set...then I would go and grab this green bucket and take down her hair before Douglas "the hairdresser" combed out her hair...they were sweet memories because it was just time with my grandma...time to be apart of her world and time to just do life with her...I loved it, I loved watching her interact with the other lady's and I loved just being with her...I will never forget those days...

Well the other day we took Jayk to the hairdresser to see Nanny and I was flooded with those memories...flooded with the smells, rollers and my sweet grandma under the blow dryer...I could of cried but new that is wasnt' the time or the place...Jayk seemed to appreciate the big fish aquarium more than the salon but I sure was captivated by a sweet thoughts and thanked Jesus for a woman that means more to me than words can describe...she is my sweet "Nanny T", my namesake "Marjorie" and a woman who has loved me and served me unconditionally for years...Oh how I love my sweet Nanny...
