Today was a special day for us. Georgia was dedicated. Paul and I made a commitment in front of our friends and family that we will teach Georgia to know and serve Jesus. We feel privileged and thankful that God has entrusted us to be her parents. This, by no means, is Georgia's salvation. That is a decision she will have to make on her own. Hopefully our living and teaching of the word will guide her in the right path.
The service was beautiful. I had the opportunity to sing today and my parents played too. Georgia did great during the service. She had her own little conversation up on the stage. It was adorable. After the service, Paul and I hosted a luncheon at our house. We had a great time visiting with family. Georgia did great all day despite cutting her first tooth today! Yes, her first tooth. What a wonderful and memorable day it was!
" You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deut. 6:5-9
Below is a gown that Paul's mom had made out of her wedding dress. It is beautiful! What a lovely treasure for all the Summerville babies.
