Today was Madeline's baby dedication. We have been wanting to do it for a while, but this Sunday was the first Sunday everything worked out for everyone. Our pastor, Chad, and another pastor, Bob Elliott did the service together. The service was SO nice. Madeline was pretty well behaved. She did get Terry's piece of paper before it was all over though. That girl LOVES paper!!! Each of the babies their own Bible with their names engraved on them. It is Madeline's very first Bible. Terry got up during the service and made a pledge to be the spiritual leader of our home. Our pastor started talking about what a blessing children are and I got a little emotional thinking about what a blessing Madeline has been to us. I just could never show enough gratitude for the gift God has given us in Madeline. She is so sweet and I melt every time she smiles at me. My prayer is that she will grow up to love Jesus and find a Godly husband one day. I am so thankful to be part of a church who loves children and is focused on helping parents raise them to love and follow Christ. We took several pictures -- they're in no particular order!
