At our church we “dedicate” a baby to the Lord, with the hope that the child will one day make a commitment to follow Jesus. The dedication is a quick proclamation and prayer that we as the parents will do what we can to teach our child God’s ways and Words, show him God’s love, and do everything we can as their parent to protect them, love them, guide them and encourage them towards Jesus. On Sunday morning we dedicated Popeye.
As a special surprise all of the elementary kids recited a bible verse. Can you find Monkey?
Thank God for Mom’s. My MIL made those scrumptious egg mcmuffins down there and my mom put together the fruit platter. Mr. Dunbar and the boys went and picked up donuts before church. I have learned how to delegate, or better yet, ask for help.
It was a great spread.
And I really didn’t get many pictures once everyone showed up. (Bad blogger, bad blogger.)
But more importantly my Popeye is now being covered in prayer and is on his way to knowing Jesus.
