Dedication Sunday


We FINALLY got the little man dedicated on September 6th. This is my two favorite men on the morning of the dedication, waiting to "have our moment in the spotlight".

Yes, I know that most people have their child dedicated not long after the baby is born. We had some extenuating circumstances at our old church and decided to hold off until we were more comfortable. (If you want to know more...email me and I will share all that.) After we left that church we didn't want to have him dedicated in a church that wasn't "our church". We have found the right church for us with an amazing Pastor, Associate Pastor and congregation!

For those of you who don't understand this....it is a time when we as parents choose to dedicate our lives to raising our child in the ways of the Lord and the church dedicates themselves to helping that in any way they can. It does not do anything for the salvation of the child!

If you want to check out all of photos from that day, you can! Click the album: Dedication Sunday

You can see the progression we made from a little boy who was just enjoying looking at everyone to a little boy who got very bored and just wanted down to play. Now I know why parents opt for this when the child is a baby and doesn't really move around! Needless to say, he had NO problem heading back to the nursery to play with his friends!!
