My Sweet Boy....

Last weekend was a special one for us. It marked the day we had you dedicated at our local church. Your Nana and Papa made the drive all the way from Oregon to be there for you. Your mama teared up when they prayed for you and for us as parents. And your daddy held you proudly as you jabbered on and on about something that peaked your interest. You are our delight, our joy, and so much of our life is wrapped up in you. We want to give you the best life possible, and to do so we are trusting your life in the hands of our Heavenly Father. we felt it was so important to stand before our family, our friends, and our church and make the declaration that we will raise you in a house of love, a house of prayer, and a house centered around the one who gives life. 

Our lives have been eternally changed when we made the decision to follow Christ, and our hope is that one day you too will find the joy, the hope, and the peace that comes in knowing Him. My prayer is that God will have great plans for you, and that you will have a heart sensitive to His calling....and because of that you will be blessed richly. 

He knit you in my womb and gave you to your daddy and I.  We do not take raising you lightly.... you are our son, our delight. Words cannot describe the love that swells in my heart daily as I watch you grow. May you continue to grow in your sweetness and adoring love, and may God give us wisdom as we guide you through this thing called life. 

We were blessed the day we found out you were going to be a part of our lives, we loved you before you even had a name and we love you more and more as we see you grow and develop into what God intended. 

Thank you for the joy you have brought to our lives. 

We love you our dear, sweet boy.

  1. Caley this is beautifully written. You articulate so many things us mom's and dad's have difficulty articulating when you do it so easily! You leave me envious and this is one your True gifts from the Lord indeed! I seemed to have missed on the spelling gift LOL.
