Taylor's Child Dedication Service

Today Taylor was dedicated at church. For those who do not know what that means, it means that we stood before our families and church and said we will raise him to know who God is, and that our church and family will stand with us to help raise him to love and know God. It is not baptism, but a promise to raise him to be able to love and know God and someday make his own decision to follow God with his heart.
It was a sweet service! We had many family members and friends surrending us, and many more who sent there love and prayers with us. Taylor and Emma behaved well and looked so adorable as you can tell from the pictures above. It is rare that we are all so dressed up, and we hope to have more photos soon, thanks to a good friend who took pictures at the church for us. I will share them later.
With all the craziness going on lately with Emma's health it was nice to take a moment and just celebrate the life of our son with our church and loved ones. We hang tight to those happy moments! I love my son and pray that he grows up to be a godly man. Today was a good day!
Click on this link and listen to the wonderful song Todd Smith, the lead singer in this video, wrote. He actually sang it tonight at the service. Such a sweet song, not a dry face in the whole room. Thank you to the group Selah and Todd Smith especially for such a sweet song.
