Grayson's Dedication

Yesterday was Grayson’s dedication at church. Our church doesn’t baptize infants- Grayson will be baptized when he’s ready and able to make that decision for himself.  We invited our in-town family; unfortunately, my mom (Grammie) couldn’t come because she’s at Disney World with her orchestra from school. My dad, Ryan’s mom and grandmother, and Ryan’s sister, brother-in-law and their two kids came. It was very special.

Grayson behaved very well up until the point where we had to walk to the front. Then the screaming started. Luckily, he stopped during the “ceremony” but I didn’t hear a word they were saying because I was trying to keep him quiet by bouncing and whispering to him the whole time. Oh well.
Each family wrote a blessing for their child. Here is Grayson’s:

You are a precious miracle. God made every single part of you deliberately and with a purpose. We know that you are God’s child, and he has entrusted your life on earth with us. As your parents, we promise to love you, fight for you, teach you, and give you every possible opportunity to succeed. We pray that you will love Jesus Christ and love others, and we promise to set that example for you. We love you deeply and fiercely.

It was a very sweet, special morning for our family. Next week- back to the nursery!
