Dedicated.

This Mother's Day was extremely special for us!  Our little Ezra was dedicated to the Lord at Church, and his whole family was able to be there.  All of his grandparents, all of his great grandparents and one set of aunt and uncle.  Such a special celebration, and I couldn't think of a better day than Mother's Day to do it. What a blessing.

As his parents, we vowed to raise him in a godly home, to instruct him in the teaching of Jesus Christ and to guide him in a Christlike character.  In response, our Church family vowed to be faithful to pray for and help us along the way.  It was so moving as we realize the duty we have as this precious little boys parents and as we vowed to do our best to guide him toward our Lord.

Our little family stood together, and it was so precious to have Levi with us, too.  It seems like just yesterday that he was dedicated.  He had never been in a Church service before (he stays back in his little class), and he just loved it and didn't want to leave.  He applauded the congregation after every song, and when he was on stage with us, he looked around at everyone and said, "This is MY Church!"  Such a proud little boy he was!

My boys looked especially handsome!  Ezra in his precious little bubble outfit with a train on it.

All of my boys made my day extra special with the sweetest card and beautiful gifts.  I am so, so blessed to be Levi and Ezra's mommy ... the best job in the world!

  1. Congrats on a great dedication!

    I am so glad you put some pics of Levi in his outfit because I have been trying to figure out what kind of shoe to put my son in with his dress up shorts for church. The loafers are so cute!

  7. Our church does dedication day on Mother's Day as well, and I've always loved that. Makes a poignant day even more special. Cute boys you've got there!

  8. How sweet! Somehow I lost your blog over a year ago, when I had to change blogs and today I was on my old blog hunting up old pictures and spotted the link to your blog and discovered Levi is now a big brother! Congrats, what handsome boys you have! What a wonderful day to dedicate sweet Ezra. I love Levi's Easter outfit. If I had little boys I'd dress them just like that! Instead I have three darling girls, so far.
    Bless you for sharing bits of your life with us! You inspire and strengthen faith with your own testimony of Christ which shows in the way you live. Thank you!
