Summer's Baby Dedication

This Sunday was a special Sunday for Summer and for us as it was Summer's baby dedication at our church.  Summer's dedication was a chance for us to publicly proclaim our desire and commitment to train Summer up in the ways of the Bible, choose a verse that expressed our desire for her life, and ask for people to commit to pray for our daughter.

We chose Colossians 1:9-12 as our prayer for Summer.  It starts out talking about us praying for her ever since we heard about her, which we did :), and then it goes on to ask God to help her to know how to please him and  have the strength to do so. 

We have noticed great strength in Summer---Physical strength (holding up her head in the first few weeks after birth, holding her weight on her legs only a few weeks later, etc...) as well as a strong will (it is amazing how long she can cry if she does not want to be napping!)  Our prayer for her is that this strength will be used for God's glory....that she will stand up for Truth even when it is not popular and proclaim the Good News of Jesus even when it is hardColossians 1:11 expressed this prayer beautifully.

Here are a few picture of the occasion, as well as a video of her dedication.  We thank the Lord for our little girl!

 Our family that was able to support us by being at Summer's dedication (many more were with us in thought!)
