Well that’s not exactly true.
I actually have many words but not sure how to adequately express them.
Last week we prepared for Baby Jacks dedication day. Many know of Christenings but we celebrate dedications as we dedicate our children to God. We choose to raise our children, leading them with Gods love and then when they are old enough to decide for themselves, we pray diligently that they will choose to Love and Serve God as we do.
Sunday mornings are full of Jack and Pops.
Just look at the bow tie💜
There were many family members and friends invited to Church of Hope to witness the dedication. Steve and I have attended COH for many years so we are grateful for friendships that we have. People have walked beside us as we struggled as Courtney (Jacks Mom) wandered from home and our family. There was never any doubt of love but there were many months that we would wonder if she was safe and was she really happy living the life that she had chosen?
Yesterday morning as I entered the Auditorium to prepare for band practice, I sat in the back and thought of how far we had come.
In a couple of hours we would be celebrating the miracle of Baby Jack. We would watch as his parents openly confess to raising him to strive for and reach for Gods guidance in his life.
When Pastor Mark offered a prayer at the end of the dedication, he asked if anyone wanted to come to the front and stand with the kids.
I’m still teary eyed as I see the amount of people surrounding my little family. To be loved is no joke.
Jack had a full morning and went upstairs for a snack and a nap.
Thank you to my Mom for helping to keep the food flowing. You are the best.
Thank you to our church family for loving and supporting my sweet little family. You will never know how much we love you.
Thank you to the family who are in the trenches with me. For cleaning and hanging pictures when there is company coming. You know who you are and I love you.
Thank you Heavenly Father for filling my life with such joy.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
