So it’s been awhile since I last blogged, but I had to set aside some time to post a quick one. I have so many exciting news to share, but today’s post is all about my precious daughter. Amara was dedicated to the Lord in church this morning, and I’m just overwhelmed by the Lord’s faithfulness!
Amara’s name has several meanings depending on the culture of origin, but in the Igbo culture “Amara” means grace or kindness. “Lyric” means words to a song. My husband came up with her name first, but from the minute he told me about it, I loved them both! It was perfect for her. Now that she’s here, I can’t imagine choosing any other name. She LOVES music, singing, and she’s a representative of God’s grace in our lives. I’m also a firm believer that she will be known as a kind spirit. My friend Jamie (if you don’t know Jamie you need to. She’s great!) encouraged me today as she described my sweet baby. She described Amara as sensitive and tender, observant, happy, and delicate. Ya’ll that’s Amara to the T (is that the expression? Shrug, I’m not from here if it’s not—that’s my excuse to everything lol). My baby is so tender, observant (not nosy lol) and just precious. I can’t wait to see all the amazing things she does in this world! She is so loved and there are so many people praying over her life. That alone makes my heart glad. Micah and I are truly blessed! I’m also thankful for my church family and family/friends who came out to support and celebrate Amara. Ya’ll rock!
