We had the awesome opportunity to present and dedicate the newest member of our family to God. Lucie was dedicated on Sunday, Feburary 27 2011 in front of her Grandparents and Aunt Sis as well as the whole congregation of the Whiteland New Life Church of God.
From the transcript:
Children are a gift from God. Psalm 127:3 proclaims that “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.” As believers we are called to recognize that children belong first and foremost to God. God in his goodness gives children as gifts to parents. They not only have the awesome responsibility of caring for this gift, but also the wonderful privilege of enjoying the gift. Because children belong to God and are given by grace as gifts to parents, it is only proper and appropriate that children be dedicated back to God.
We whole heatedly believe this and are truly honored to be blessed with Lucie in our lives. We continued on to promise before God that we would dedicate ourselves and Lucie to the Lord. Likewise, our Grandparents promised to take up the oath we had pledged in case anything happened to us. We feel incredibly lucky to have a family that supports us and loves us. Thank you!
