Jacob's Baby Dedication 2011

Last Sunday was the baby dedication at our church. Our church has baby dedication twice a year so it's a little more personal than having a large number of people on stage. Although, our church is growing so fast & has lots of babies & children that we still have a full stage each time. Baby dedication is a special time to publicly dedicate our child to God & promise to instruct him in HIS ways. Jacob is such a precious gift from God. He's the cutest little baby boy & his smiles just melt your heart. It was such an honor to have our pastor & friend introduce our family & pray with us as we dedicated our son to the Lord. It was very special to me that we weren't just "another" family on stage, but the pastor & the children's ministry staff actually knew who we were & knew our names other than just reading them off a card. We invited our family to church to witness the dedication. So, Abigail had her cousins Gannon & Colton in her class. She thought that was so funny. Abigail also thought that the Bible Jacob received was for her & she commented that she now has two of the same Bibles. Silly girl! Abigail came on stage with us & she stood there so sweetly just holding the Bible.

All the parents & children

The Bible that WPCC passes out. This is a really neat children's Bible.

The card Jacob was given along with his Bible. This picture was flashed on the screen while his name was being read.

Your family is very sweet and wonderful and I am blessed to know you. You son... Oh how he melts my heart. I look forward to my 3rd week of serving in the babies nursery cause that means I get to hold him. He really is a precious boy.
Love you guys!
