A Very Special Day!

Not only is today Mother's Day, it's also Grace's dedication day! We had Grace dedicated at church this morning. It was a sweet service and Grace even giggled her way through it. She's even wearing her traditional Ethiopian dress. I was so glad that it still fit!

The following is our pastor's prayer for Grace and I just loved it and know that this is all of our hope and prayer for all our children. Happy Mother's Day!!!

"I prayed that your parents would live for the Lord Jesus so that they would always be an example to you. I prayed that when you reach the age where you understand that Jesus died to save sinners that you also understand your need of His salvation. When that time comes, may you respond to His love for you and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. The Bible says, "The Lord is my Shepherd." But we have to make Him our Shepherd by asking Him to come into our hearts. This He wants to do more than anything else."
