Alexis' Dedication

Today Alexis was dedicated at church. Dedication basically means we got up in front of everyone and promise to pray for our little girl, that she may know Jesus deeply someday. Adam and I promised to raise her to know who God is and that she experiences Jesus' love in our family. The church promised to help us as a family too. We had both boys with us today so they too could pray for their sister. I wasn't sure how this would go, but as always they surprised me. At one point each family gets a couple moments to pray together. So, Adam and I squatted down and Adam started us off. Then we asked Bryce if he wanted to pray for Alexis. We got "God, Bless Boo-Boo A-maam" Then I turned to Connor and asked him if he wanted to pray. (Thinking that that we would get the same thing Dear God, Bless Alexis Grace) Instead "Pastor" Connor prayed this; "Dear God, Please help Alexis ask Jesus into her heart someday. Take care of her so she doesn't get hurt and help her grow up big. Amen" (all while holding her little hand) It was too cute and even made me tear up a bit. Alexis, I pray that someday you realize just how much your big brothers, Mommy, Daddy, and your Savior love you! Here is the verse Adam and I will be praying over her throughout the years:
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1st Timothy 4:12

How proud I am of all you! Brought a tear to my eye just reading it! Gigi is always praying too for her Texas family. God is smiling down on you and is rejoicing in your devotion to him and your commitment to raise these children in Him. I love you all so much. (and I love the bow - she looks so kissable!)
