For Posterity

On Sunday, September 30th, we had a baby dedication service for the Little Goat at church. She did great! She looked so sweet in her little stripey dress and fancy black shoes and didn't make a peep until we sat back down! My parents were able to be there which made it extra special for me and her 'Auntie Holly' was there too. After church, we met up with 'Uncle Chris' and we all went out for lunch. Holly & Chris came over later for celebratory banana/walnut cake and hot cider. The Little Goat got three new books too! A book about colours, one about farms and farm animals, and her very first Bible!

Here's a condensed excerpt from the service!

Pastor Jim:
(The Husband) and (Bren J.), will you love and respect each other so that through your marriage (the Little Goat) will have a c
lear understanding of Christ's love for His Church? Will you faithfully walk with Christ, continually pursuing greater spiritual maturity and holiness? Will you faithfully pray for her salvation as you teach her the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ? Will you teach her the truth of God's Word and to trust it implicitly? Will you teach her to actively worship and serve with other believers in a local church, wherever the Holy Spirit leads you?

Us: With God as our Helper, we will.

What an opportunity....

That's sounds great. Monkey is a year this week and still hasn't been dedicated. (we're such slackers.) And so nice that your parents could be there for the service.

I wrote about having The Baby christened early this week, too! Your little one is such a beautiful girl.
