Announcing Kip Darcy Brumley

So, I usually think some about what I write before I begin typing but I am not doing that today. I am primarily making this post today to announce that at 10:32 pm on Nov. 27 (yes, Thanksgiving day), the lovely Joy Alvarado Brumley gave birth to a 7 lb 1 oz happy and healthy baby boy that we have named Kip Darcy Brumley.

To my sons Ethan and Luke: I don't know if you will ever read this and I know I have tried to express this to you in words but I am so proud of both of you. I realize you guys are only 7 and 6 but the way you have handled your new baby brother and shown interest and concern in him already shows me that Kip is very lucky to have both of you as big brothers. Both of you are not only on your way to becoming the leaders that I have talked to you about, but already are great leaders for a baby brother who is going to look up and mimic the two of you. You guys make your mother and I so happy and proud.

To my wife Joy: I love you. I know the fear and health concerns that you have endured with all of your pregnancies but you rarely showed it and have looked to God for courage and strength. Your example of faith is something that I bask in and I feel so lucky that God chose to put us together. I can't think of anyone else I would want to spend my days with. As we embark on a new journey with a new child please remind me to spoil you, care for you, work for you, and to keep my eye on Christ. You mean the world to me and I thank you for bearing the burden that has now become our third happy and healthy son.

That is really, really awesome! I started this journey for the first time 6 weeks ago yesterday and wow is it amazing! God bless and blessings to little Kip.

thanks Matt. I hope that together we can both raise leaders for the church of tomorrow. I am sure I have told you this before but let me tell you again: I love your blog and it is a blessing in my life.
