Nathan's Dedication

Sabbath was a special day for us as Nathan was dedicated to the Lord! The Pastor had beautiful dedication ceremony for him/us and I really felt the Lord's presence. My family as well as Mike's was there to witness the event as well, so that was an added blessing.

I wrote a poem for the occasion and Mike and I chose Proverbs 3:1-15 for the verses of dedication with special emphasis on verses 5 and 6. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, ackowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. For length of days and long life will I give you.

This passage is one that I want Nathan to live by. I want him to trust Jesus with all of his heart. Because HE is the only way. Read the whole passage, It is full of meaning!

Our sweet little boy
Precious gift from God above
You have been prayed for
Right from the very start.
Your mommy and your daddy
We both want Jesus in your heart
We pray for you to love Him
And serve Him with all your heart

Our sweet little boy
You’re but a babe in our arms
Growing, learning every day
May you learn of Jesus
And how to walk the narrow way
Surrender to Him daily
You can trust that He
Will never lead you astray

Our sweet little boy
Heaven’s special gift
May your mommy and your daddy
Leaning wholly on the Lord
Guide you ever upward
Not seeking to thwart
The great plans that Jesus has
For our special Nathan ____
