Isaiah's baby dedication :)

On Sunday March 27th we had our son Isaiah Eli dedicated at church. What is a baby dedication you may ask?

"A Baby Dedication is when believing parents (Christian parents) make a commitment before the Lord to submit a child to God's will and to raise that child according to God's Word and God's ways".

Yesterday we dedicated our son as a promise to the Lord to raise him in a godly way, prayerfully until he can make a decision on his own to follow God. We want to teach and train Isaiah to know God's Word and we are continually praying earnestly for our dear son.

It was such a blessing to have our families and dear friends be apart of this special day in our lives. We were so honoured to have Pastor Keith Smith do our baby dedication as he has been there for so many significant stages in our lives. He married us almost 8 years ago, and he has been there for us in so many ways. To have him dedicate our son was truly a blessing and we are so thankful.

Today we are still taking it all in. I want to say a special thanks to Christina McKenzie from the cocoa cakery for making the most beautiful cake for Isaiah. Ryan Ishmael & Lyndon Layne for taking pictures and capturing some great moments. Our families for all their help in making this day happen.

God is so good and we are so happy that the day went well and that everyone had a great time celebrating this milestone in our son's life.
