in dedication

In the Southern Baptist church, we "dedicate" our babies.  We don't practice infant baptism, but instead we welcome children into the world by simply bringing them before the church and praying for them.  Essentially, the prayer is that they will one day come to chose Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and always walk in His ways.

Today, Hannah was dedicated, and it was beautiful!

Dear Lord,  Please watch over my little blessing! Thank you for giving her into my care.  Holy Spirit please guide her into a saving relationship with you one day.  May she always strive to walk in Your ways and to please and honor You!  I know you have special plans for this rainbow.  I praise you for all you've done for us and her.  AMEN


  1. That is so beautiful Jamie! It is so special that you dedicated her to the Lord. I can't believe how big she has already gotten. She is so gorgeous!!!
    We do not baptize babies either, but we do give them a blessing. It is pretty much the same as a dedication. Our little rainbow was given a blessing by my dad who is a minister. He was three days old at the time. It was a special thing too. I wish I had a picture, but we didn't take any.

  2. Beautiful. I love the child dedications. She is adorable! May God bless her and watch over her.

  3. She is so cute and looks so much like you...and all that hair. WOW! Gorgeous!!

  4. She is soooooooooo cute! I love the dress! and I'm sure the dedication was lovely as well. ((HUGS))
