Graham's Dedication...

Sunday was baby dedication at our church so we dedicated our Graham Haggard. I am glad that our church calls it Parent/Child dedication since it really is about the parents making a commitment to guide their child in the ways of the Lord. It was also Mother's Day so it was a very special day. Pausing to shake hands and take a pic with Pastor Graham.
Anna Lou with her cousins. Anna wore a dress that I wore when I was her age. My mom MADE it and several other dresses of mine when I was little. Now Anna can fit into them! I better work on my smocking and sewing skills pronto!
Our wonderful family that came to be with us. We missed our family in Doha! (But will see them VERY soon!)
Honey and AL having a giggle.
Anna Lou and Graham's Great-Great Aunt Rosie was with us too!
After church we headed to lunch at Honey and Papa's house.

Aubrey and AL enjoying some "yunch" as AL calls it.
Honey, G, PawPaw and MimiDessert!
This is as close as AL would get to little bro.

I love this prayer I saw in a devotional on a friends blog.
Dear Lord,
We bring you this child. Please show us how to parent this precious gift that you have given us. Help us to be the best parents that we can be. We pray that your holy spirit will teach us, your wisdom will guide us, and your love will move us. Most of all, we give this child to you. Please make Graham a servant after your own heart. In Jesus name, Amen.
