we had evaleigh's baby dedication yesterday at church.
and i guess it's more of a "toddler" dedication, but whatever.
i was thankful my friend was willing to take pictures for me. she has a dslr and is used to it, so she was the perfect person to ask. thanks again, amber. :)
we had never invited our grandparents before to any of the other dedication. mainly because our other church was a home fellowship it was harder to invite a lot of people. and quite honestly, i had never thought about inviting our grandparents. when we were talking about doing evaleigh's dedication i really felt the Lord telling me to invite our grandparents. so we did. my grandparents choose to not come, but shaun's did and it truly blessed us that they did.
i'll admit i struggled a bit with being hurt that my grandparents didn't come. i guess i thought because the Lord was telling me to invite them, that meant they'd for sure come. but it didn't. and that's okay. i was obedient to what God told me to do, and it didn't mean they were to come. it just meant that they knew they were invited and wanted there.
it was a great day. and the message during church was really good as well. it was fun to be able to "share" our church with our family. pastor danny is an awesome teacher and man of God so it is always fun to share him with people. of course as he says, all glory goes to God, because it is only because of Him that he is up there. ((he tells us all the time how he really dislikes talking in front of people. lol))
we went out to eat after the dedication, and it didn't even cross my mind to bring my camera in. so i don't have any other pictures other than church. i guess i should've hired amber for the day. ;)
