We had the honor on May 29th to have Addison dedicated to the Lord at our church. What an honor it is to be her parents and such a great day it will be when she comes to know Christ as her personal savior. It was such a blessing to have her grandparents stand up with us in the commitment to help encourage us in the raising of our daughter. We also had the uncles, aunts, cousins, and great grandparents there too. We had a fun day of celebration and Ben's dad treated us all to Old Country Buffet after. What a great time of fellowship.
The day was also special because it was Cathie's (Ben's mom) Birthday!!! We celebrated later that evening with Jet's Pizza and had some of the best pizza ever...It was an all meat pizza that David (our bro-in-law) suggested... Ham, bacon and pepperoni!! NUMMY!!!
This day was also Ellie's 11 month birthday!! Yeah.. our sweet niece has grown and we are looking forward to celebrating her first birthday this month!!
Some wonderful verses that come to mind about children are listed below with some great pictures...
Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Psalm 127:3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.
Ephesians 6:1-4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
"Honor your father and mother"-which is the first commandment with a promise-
"that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."
