Adelyn’s Dedication

We knew the minute we found out we were pregnant that this baby was a gift from God. When Adelyn was born we put her in God’s hands, but we wanted to do the “official” dedication at our church. On Sunday September 18th, surrounded by our families we dedicated our sweet baby girl to the Lord. _DSC5946

A big part of baby dedication is in our purpose as parents, to accept the challenge of raising Adelyn in the love of God and in the ways of God! During the service Pastor had a few things for us to commit to. We recognize Adelyn as a gift from God and give heartfelt thanks for God’s blessing. _DSC5949

We pledged as parents, in the sight of God and witnesses, to bring up Adelyn in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. _DSC5951

We promised to Adelyn every possible benefit of home, school, and church. _DSC5955

And the final parent of the covenant was asking God’s blessing upon Adelyn’s life, to guide, guard, and direct through all of years. _DSC5957

Pastor Janis took Adelyn and prayed over her. The whole time she was smiling and cooing! It was SO sweet!_DSC5960

Then Pastor & Janis prayed over us! It was such a special day and we felt so blessed to have the support of our families there with us. We know Adelyn is blessing from God and we are excited to raise her to know Him!

1 Samuel 1:27-28 For this child I have prayed; and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. Therefore I also have lent him to the Lord; as long as he lived he shall be lent to the Lord.
