and the thunder rolls.....

Noah and Lily @ the Botanical Gardens in Athens, GA recently
Angie and Lily looking beautiful as always!
I was able to enjoy a little golf at the GOA convention last weekend!
I love this picture.... they both miss Hogan so much
I am blessed.
I wanted to post a few recent pictures of our family!!!

"So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life-whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes. Doesn't life consist of more than food and clothing? Look at the birds. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him then they are. Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not.

"And why worry about your clothes? Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make clothing, yet Soloman in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you? You have so little faith!

"So don't worry about having enough food, drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.

"So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring it's own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.

Matthew 6:25-34 NLT

I thought this was a great passage of scripture that we loved while we were in the hospital with Hogan. It speaks to me everyday. I tend to worry about everything and especially tomorrow. Thank God that I am starting to not worry about tomorrow quite as much and enjoying today. Tomorrow might not ever get here for me!

Dear Friends,

If you are a friend of Hogan's then you are a friend of mine!

I hope this blog update finds everyone doing great! I know that it's summer in Georgia because the extended forecast calls for a 20% chance of afternoon thunderstorms for the next 3 months!!! I have been busy over the past couple of weeks and look forward to writing an update on what has been going on with our family in my next blog that I plan to write on Father's Day. The reason for today's blog is to ask you a favor!? I have some things that are very heavy on my heart and I strongly feel that God wants me to accomplish some things while I am still on this earth that were inspired by Hogan's life.

I would appreciate any suggestions on charities that deal with children/infant death or disabilities. I have a couple of local charities that I would like to help but I would love to choose one or two "world wide" organizations to support. God is continuing to bless me with opportunities to share Hogan's story and lives are still being touched by Hogan's Journey! My prayer is that God will continue to use Hogan's journey in a way that will honor and glorify Jesus long after I leave this earth.

I can't thank you enough for all of the cards, emails, calls, notes, prayers, and financial support that has been given to Hogan's memorial children's library section at Prince Avenue Christian School. I can't wait to put pictures up when this section is ready to be used!

I also wanted you to know about an amazing ministry that a few ladies in my hometown of Dublin, Georgia are doing in memory of Hogan. They are donating baby gowns they have made to fit babies who pass away at birth or that are very small and only live a very short life. I was notified by an email from Kem Mixon of St. Mary's today that a 1 pound 1 ounce baby had passed away. This baby was dressed in one of the gowns that the ladies from Dublin made for these very small babies. My heart breaks for the family that lost their baby. The feeling is still very real to me and I ask you to please pray for this little baby's family that had to kiss their little one for the last time on this earth today. It does warm my heart knowing that he has a gown that fits him perfect though. I know that little man was beautiful. It was such a blessing to have friends that made clothes for Hogan. We are so thankful. What a blessing to know amazing people that do such wonderful things. The ladies that came up with this idea are heroes to me. The ladies call the ministry "Wee Care" of Laurens County. I believe that a group of ladies in Athens are going to start making them too! This is what is printed on the card that is presented to the parents of these angels along with the gown:

This gown was made for your precious Little Angel with loving hands by the ladies of Wee Care of Laurens County.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

I Corinthians 13:7-8

Also, I appreciate your requests for prayer for loved ones. Please keep sending me your messages and prayer requests. Again, you can friend me at "Kip Dominy" on facebook and send me a message through that channel or you can send me an email to one of my email addresses: or

Also, if you follow our blog and we have never met you "face to face". Please let us know who you are if we see you! We got a message from someone that recognized us from the blog but didn't say hello at that time. We would love to meet you!

I hope that everyone is having a great week.

In His Love,



  1. So glad you are continuing your blog-I really enjoy your updates and photos-Hogan continues to inspire so many people to do good things-What a blessing he was! :)

  2. Loved hearing from you, Kip! Such sweet pictures of Noah and Lily! I would love to help with Wee Care. I'm sure Catherine would like to as well. We enjoyed making the gown for Hogan and would love to do what we can to help other parents in this situation. I can sew or monogram.

  3. Thank you so much for keeping us updated Kip. We're still thinking about and praying for you guys. Thank you for continuing to be an inspiration to others, even though I'm sure it's so hard at times. I love what they are doing with the gowns! I'm going to check and see how much sewing knowledge is required. I can do a little. Hope to see y'all soon!

  4. Hi Kip, and thanks for the update. What serendipitous timing, I have the Hunter's Hope Foundation open already in another window! ( Hunter Kelly was the son of former Buffalo Bill football player, Jim Kelly. Hunter was diagnosed with Krabbe's disease when he was about 4 months old. With no treatment options, this was basically a death sentence for the little boy. Jim, already a very prominent local figure (we sure love our football!) reached out to the community, thus forming the Hunter's Hope Foundation. The original purpose was to help Hunter and others with Krabbe's, researching the disease and looking for a cure. After Hunter's passing at age 7, the foundation continued its work. Today the HJK Institute is working on developing newborn screening, has created a network for families affected by Krabbe's and is still keeping the hope alive.

    Hunter and Hogan remind me of each other. Two little boys whom I've never met face to face, but who have had such a profound impact on my life.

    Peace be with all of you!
    MVH, Cait

  5. Thank you for continuing to update us on how y'all are doing and what's going on with all of you. We continue to pray for you and think of y'all often! What a blessing these tiny gowns are for families who are so overwhelmed. I'd love more info on the Wee Care groups to pass along to others I know who are able to sew.

    Thank you again for sharing your heart and your journey with us!

  6. I just read this and realized that you wanted to meet people who followed your precious family on this blog. I actually saw you and Angie at Longhorns when you celebrated her birthday, but I did not want to interrupt her birthday dinner. Of course, I felt like I already knew you two :) I was with the group of loud ladies at the table next to you. It was wonderful to see you two out and happy and that spoke volumes to me. You live such a humble and thankful life and that is evident to everyone who reads your posts. Thank you for blessing so many of us by sharing your life. Ashleigh

  7. Can we donate to the ladies in Dublin making gowns? I have been a Registerd Nurse since I was 22 years old and I turn 50 this year (THATS HARD TO READ AND WRITE)and GOD bleses me every day. I know working in the medical field how meaningfull these gowns will be. Thanks for all you do KIP. Hank
