We celebrated Grace's baby dedication today. It was great! Our pastor did an awesome job. It hit me how much of a responsibility it is to raise a child to love God. We have been commissioned to teach Grace to love Jesus by our actions and our example of what it means to be a follower of Christ. May our lives always show her the love of God.
Grace was awesome while she was being dedicated. She was all smiles and even tried playing with Pastor Matt. Pastor Matt shared scripture from Deuteronomy and walked us through several commitments.
Pastor Matt prayed for us. He also allowed the congregation to bless us with encouragement. Our hope is that Grace from an early age will have understanding and make a decision to follow Jesus.
Here we are after the service with Pastor Matt.
My sister Alicia and her family drove down from Fresno to be with us. We were very blessed!
This video is of our friend Kim playing with Grace. We were already home from church and lunch. I was thrilled to have Kim join us today. She's a good friend of mine from UCSB.
She loves to play and is becoming more and more social. We love it!
I have tomorrow off. I get to stay home with Grace, which is my favorite thing to do. I am planning on getting a little scrapbooking done while she naps, but other than that, I'm just looking forward to spending time with her.
