Dedicating Wesley to the Lord

At church today, we dedicated Wesley to the Lord. Tim read some verses and the minister to children and the pastor prayed for Wesley. It was a special time to make a promise to teach Wesley about Jesus and to be reminded that he is not ours. He's a special blessing from God, and he belongs to God. I pray everyday for wisdom from the Lord to raise our boys to love God and to love others.
Graham did very well standing up with us during the ceremony. I told him he was promising as a big brother to help teach Wesley about Jesus, too.

The verses we picked for Wesley are from Ephesians 3.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with poower through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

I am so glad that today went well for you! What a precious family you have. Wesley and Graham are so blessed to have you both as their parents!

Miss you lots.
