Dedication Day

Today was Hudson's Baby Dedication (well, formal dedication).  Our church only offers it once a year and I missed the sign up date last year.  We were so blessed that both sets of parents could come down for the weekend and witness.  We have been praying for our kid(s) for years and today was truly humbling to dedicate him back to God.   Hudson brings us so much joy.  We pray that God has big plans for our little guy. 
 
Attempt to get a picture of my boys
My turn was a little more successful
 
Family picture attempt - the best we could get
We let Hudson run a little bit since he wasn't interested in pictures at all
 
Still just not interested in pictures
 
Too busy to sit still for a couple of pictures!
Completely over pictures!!
Waiting for the service to begin
Sweetheart Michelle Frank led the dedication and had us pray over Hudson's feet, hands, head, and heart.
 
There were 44 babies dedicated to the Lord today.
 
Brian is pretty far behind me- there just wasn't room for all the families to stand together, sadly.
 
We promised to pray for and with Hudson that his knowledge of God would grow and that he would have a relationship with God.  We promised to take our own relationship with God seriously so that we can be spiritual examples to our kids.  And we promised to do all that we can so that in God's timing, Hudson will begin a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ and to follow that faith with repentence and baptism. 
 
Our dear friends, Todd and Kristin had their new baby Kaden dedicated, also.
 
One final family picture --such a special day for our family. 


WHY GOD MADE LITTLE BOYS
God made a world of His dreams of magic mountains, oceans and streams, prairies and plains and wooded land, then paused and thought, "I need someone to stand on top of the mountains, to conquer the seas, explore the plains and climb trees.  Someone to start out small and grow sturdy and strong like a tree."  And so...He created boys, full of spirit and fun, to explore and conquer, to romp and run, with dirty faces and banged-chins, with courteous hearts and boyish grins.  When He had completed the task He'd begun, He surely said, "That's a job well done."
