I’m sure you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat my Mother’s Day post – ha!! I was clearing pictures of my camera & realized I never wrote anything. It was a great Mother’s Day. We actually had Megan dedicated at our church that morning. It was simple but yet very sweet. For us, a Child Dedications is more of a commitment of us (her parents) to raise her in a Godly home, give her the tools & understanding of Jesus & his love so that when she’s older she can make her own decision to follow Christ. The church gave us a letter, written by the lead pastor. It’s in a sealed envelope & addressed to Megan. We’re to give it to her once she accepts Jesus into her life – whether that’s in 6 years, 12 years, 30 years or more. So that she’ll know that on that day, May 10th 2009, her parents, her family, & her church made a commitment to show her Jesus & prayed for her day of salvation to come!! That’s very exciting to me! Now if I can just put it somewhere safe & then remember where I put it when that day comes around!!
After the church service & dedication, we had both of our families over for lunch. I was really hoping for a good family picture. And by good, I just mean one where we’re all kind-of, sort-of, looking at the camera with something that might resemble a smile & if I’m being pickey then I want to look half-way thin in it too!! I guess I’ll have to settle with these!
