Teach Them to Your Children

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon 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. 6:6-9

We had Daphne dedicated at church today.  Standing as a family in front of the church Kevin and I promised to teach her about Christ.  We want all 3 girls to know God's love for them.  We want them to know the sacrifice He made so that we could spend eternity in heaven.  Norah has already asked God for forgiveness and asked Jesus to come into her heart.  Our desire is that Lucy and Daphne would do the same and that we could nurture their relationships with Jesus every day.  

We are so thankful for 2 sets of grandparents who desire the same for the girls.  They were all at the dedication today, along with my sister and her boys and Kevin's brother and our nephew, Jackson.

After church we headed back to our house for brunch and Lucy's birthday party.  Other than a burnt egg casserole, we had a great day!!
