Olivia's Dedication

This morning at Macedonia Baptist Church, before our church family, Jon and I dedicated Olivia to the Lord! It was such a wonderful morning. There were a lot of other babies being dedicated at the same time as Olivia. It is nice to know that we won't be alone as Olivia grows up here in Longview!

Olivia is only 8 weeks old, but it was important for us to stand before our church family and ask them to help us raise our daughter to fear the Lord. We stood before our church asking them to keep us accountable to live our lives in a way that honors the Lord. It was a challenge to Jon and I to continue to maintain a daily relationship with God.  I tried my best to hold back tears while our Pastor prayed for our small family. I was overwhelmed with so many different emotions! I was happy, hopeful, joyful, fearful, nervous, excited, and many more.

It was such a wonderful morning and the main reason I am writing about this is because I do not want to forget about what we did this morning!

Thanks Auntie Kara for sending us the perfect outfit to us for dedication Sunday! We have a lot of family who did not get to be here for Olivia's dedication. I hope you enjoy these pictures below.

Olivia received a few things from Macedonia Baptist Church to help remember this important day! she got a certificate, personalized Bible, and a flower.

Our little family

Our friends and family live all over the world and even though you could not be there this morning, we would like you to keep us accountable too! We hope that you will continue to pray for us and that God would give us wisdom as we raise Olivia. Please pray for Olivia's salvation and that she will trust in the Lord as her Savior!
