The Sunday before last, we dedicated Johann “formally” to the Lord, before our church. It is always a blessing for us, as parents, to make a public acknowledgement that this child that we have been blessed with does not belong to us, but has been entrusted to us by the Lord for a short time to mold, nuture and instruct in the ways of God. We are so blessed to have a church family that stands by us as we do this, praying with us and for us and supporting us in both spiritual and practical ways.
And another special blessing was long-time family friends Kate and Olivia joining us too! This is Kate and my mom, kindred spirits. 🙂
