Your Dedication

Today at North Metro Church, Daddy and I committed ourselves to nurture you into becoming a strong, Christian man. On stage, while a slideshow and recording played, you behaved like the angel you are. Here is the letter Daddy and I wrote to you...

To our little Mace Face,

Out of the people on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be His cherished, personal treasure.
-Deuteronomy 7:6

You are His personal treasure as well as ours. You are a perfect gift made especially for us. You were born on purpose and for a purpose. Your adventurous and fun-loving personality radiates to all who meet you.
Our job as your parents is not only to love and care for you but, to model a life of prayer, patience, and compassion and to nurture you to become the unique person the Lord created you to be. Our prayer for you now and in the years to come is from Numbers 6:24-26:

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.

May you always remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Love you forever,
Mommy and Daddy

You are so fortunate to have so many people who love you. Both sets of your grandparents as well as your aunt Kimmy were able to attend your dedication and brunch. After brunch, we spent the rest o fthe day taking care of sick Daddy and playing together.

Can't wait until summer,
