We had a wonderful day on Sunday. Our grandson was dedicated to the Lord at our church. Many of my family members were there. It was such a joy to share this great experience with many of my other loved ones.

Later, we went to the home of friends who also had their baby dedicated that day. It was fun seeing Ty with his nanesake. I also got to hold him for a long while. There is something otherworldly about this whole experience. It takes me back to the time I held my babies, who all looked a bit like Ty, with the black sticky-out hair. It was a time when I was in love with a new tiny being. It's all there, the feelings, as if time had just disappeared.

What a wonderful thing to be able to offer the baby back to the Lord for His service and to promise publicly that I will help to raise him in the way that he should go. I can sense some rocking chair and hymn time coming up.

(Monday I hope to post a blog that is one of my favorite writings of all time. I've been saving it for just the right moment. Hope to see you right here. Nancy)


  1. What a beautiful family! I always loved dedicating each of my five children to the Lord!

  2. a great picture of all three of them! So happy to hear you had a special day. I understand about wanting that holding time. My grandson's second birthday is in a week and we can't be there. So I am thrilled when others can be:)

  3. There's nothing like holding a baby, is there? Ty is adorable!

  4. Oh, how sweet and lovely! I just want to kiss his tiny fuzzy head! Congratulations and blessings from the Lord of life.

    Jan Cline, one of my blog followers, has a beautiful lullaby cd, Nancy. I bought it for my granddaughter and fell in love with it myself.

    I am hosting a book drawing on my blog today - next Thursday. Would love to have you pop over!
