Baby Dedication

Today was the day we dedicated Heidi to the Lord. It was so great! I love our church and I love our Pastor. Our Pastor truely loves us (the church body) as God intends. Everytime he speaks I feel the message and totally get and understand what he is trying to get across. Anyways :o)... Heidi was such a good little baby while we were dedicating her. All she did was chew on her fingers and occassionally turn and look what was going on behind her. We got a little certificate saying Heidi was dedicated on this day and we got a card saying what Heidi LeAnne means. Her name means: Blessed and this is her verse: "The Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace..." Psalm 29:11. I really like that verse.

We never dedicated Hailee but, we asked if we could do it when we did Heidi's dedication. But, they said they don't do dedications after 15 months old. But, Hailee got a card saying what Hailee Sterling means. Her name means: Creative and this is her verse "And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men... for you serve the Lord Christ." Colossians 3:23-34. I really like this verse too.

No matter if we dedicated Heidi or not, we still are going to raise our children in Christ. I know it seems like Hailee is getting gipped but, she's not. She is so involved in the church, we read the Bible to her, she is memorizing Bible verses (she knows 3 already by memory), we pray with her, we pray for her and Heidi daily etc. We will be doing the same with Heidi when she gets older. We love our children and we want them to know that God loves them more than anything, more than they could ever imagine.

Anywho, I thought I would just let you all know what we did today and how special God is our lives. Talk to you all soon.
