Lincoln's Baby Dedication

"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." ~Proverbs 22:6

Because I believe in these words, I think today is extremely important and significant for not only Lincoln but for our family as well. Today Lincoln took part in the baby dedication service at our church, and we as parents committed to raise him in a Godly home and to try our best to act in a Christ-like manner as examples for him. What a responsibility!! HUGE! But one I feel so honored to take on...

"I asked the Lord to give me this boy, and he has granted my request."~ 1 Samuel 1:27
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you..." ~ Jeremiah 1:5 Isn't that incredible to know the Lord knew these two little angels would be mine??? That He knew the amount of hairs on each of their adorable little heads??? [And that He trusted me enough...]I adore this picture because it was completely candid and captured a precious moment between me and Sailer.

Dear Lord, I ask that you watch over these two babies you've both blessed and charged me with. Keep them safe. And may they always feel love first and foremost from me. Help me to exemplify your son, and for them to always know that you are the beginning and the end.... that your son is the reason we live... and that they are two of the reasons I live. Thank you for trusting me enough. I love you.
