“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
Earlier today, Jim and I had the honor of standing before our church congregation and dedicating our precious fourth born, Sadie Grace, to the Lord. Today we not only dedicated her, we willingly submitted Sadie to the will of God, while at the same time acknowledged the command of God upon our lives to raise her to love, honor, and obey Christ above all things. This is nothing less than a command to teach her the Gospel, show her the Gospel, and love her with the Gospel each and every day. Jim and I are so thankful to have been entrusted with the care of this precious little girl, and we take our responsibility to bring her up to love and serve the Lord seriously.
We are absolutely in awe of the gift that God gave our family in you. You bring your daddy, mommy, big brothers and sister such joy each and every day. It is hard to comprehend that as great as our love is, God’s love for you is infinitely greater! We have so many hopes and dreams for you, Sadie, most importantly that you would come to understand His amazing love and know Jesus as your Lord and Savior at a young age and live for Him your whole life. We pray that God would help us as your parents to model that love and guide you always toward Him. We can’t wait to see what wonderful things He has in store for your life. We love you so, so much, Precious Girl!
