Dedicating the Girls



What a special Mother's Day.
My very first.
We went in front of our congregation at church this morning to dedicate ourselves and the girls to the Lord.
This is not for the purpose of salvation, but to commit ourselves to raise the girls to respect and honor God and to love and serve Jesus Christ.
Our amazing pastor prayed for all of us. Our families were there to celebrate with us.
It was wonderful. I am a blessed mother. I am so grateful.

What a great day! I am glad we packed out the church with love and support for your family. The girls did not know whose lap to sit on--there were so many loving family members wanting to spend time with them.

I'm so sorry I missed this special event! I love you guys and am praying for your new family all the time! (it was probably better that I was not there because the cuties would have wanted to sit on my lap to - hee hee) XOXO
