Today was a great family day. At church during our 9:15 am service John and I dedicated baby Mark to the Lord. This is our way of promising to the Lord to do our very best to raise Mark for Jesus' glory. We know that children are a gift and we are basically telling God we will try our best with His help to honor Him as we raise our children to serve and love God. Mark was very awake and attentive during the dedication and Julia was waving to "Anpa (grandpa) and Aunt Yaya (sara) and Aunt Louie (Laurie)...it was so funny! Earlier that morning she was telling Pastor Joe all about her Bible...so Pastor Joe brought that up in front of the congregation...I was such a proud mommy!
Deuteronomy 6:7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Dear Heavenly Father,
You are the best parent to us. Please continue to give John and I wisdom as we raise these two precious children. We want to do what is right. We want our children to love you and honor you with their lives. Give us grace each day as we make mistakes. Help us to be good examples. We want to be good stewards of all you have blessed us with.
