Last weekend. Mark & Pam participated in our church’s baby dedication, and we were so excited for them to bring Abby forward to receive blessings from the church.
There were around 20 families that brought infants, babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers before the congregation to declare that they intended to raise these children in a Godly home and ask for the church’s support in raising them with a strong, deep faith.
Our church doesn’t do baby baptism, but rather offers baptism to those adults and young-children who desire to make a public profession of faith, much like the examples in the Bible. Mark & Pam had asked if I would pray over their family, and it was such a huge honor and blessing to share this special moment with them. I’m so proud of them as parents, but especially for their commitment to making the teachings of the Bible an important part of Abby’s life.
H’s mom was there, my parents stopped by to see the baby, and even our pastor couldn’t resist the cuteness after the service.
We went outside on a beautiful Mother’s Day Sunday and took a few family portraits to make the occasion.
Abby received a tiny New Testament Bible, and her face totally cracked me up when H was holding her.
At about 2 months old, Abby is starting to make faces and really respond to people- such a great age & we can’t wait to keep watching her grow.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Having an incredible vacation so far & just started the second half as we switched islands.
