Our's For A Moment

Dear Harrison,
Daddy and Mommy want to explain to you why we had you dedicated. We went to our home church in front of all our family and friends (you were so well behaved standing up front-thank you!)

Dedicating you to the Lord does not ensure your salvation, does not make you a better person, and it does not give you a personal relationship with God; but it does mark you life as one we place in God's hand to guide and use for His glory.

Daddy and Mommy pray for your personal salvation and an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, but until you make that commitment on your own, we vowed to parent you in wisdom and Godliness.

Our pastor, friends, and families were all there. They also vowed to help instruct you in wisdom and pray for you as you grow and become a man after God's own heart. This means there's a lot of people looking out for you out there, for better or worse! :)

So Harrison, your dedication was very special, in that you are not mine to keep, you are God's child and just mine for a moment. It's during this moment that God entrusts Daddy and Mommy to instill in you a knowledge and desire of our Heavenly Father. You are our pride and joy and biggest blessing. We are honored God chose us to be your parents. We love you!

Being confident in this, that he who began a good work in you, will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
