A Cherished Fathers Day





Yesterday we celebrated fathers day by dedicating Faith to the Lord at Topeka Bible Church. It was a bit nerve racking not knowing if we were going to get choked up while speaking to the congregation, but we did well to keep it together. Check it out below.





In preparing for the dedication it was good to reflect on all that has happened in the last six months. Being able to see how the Lord has worked in so many diffrent ways makes it easier to look foward into the unkown and trust that he has a plan. The heart felt support of our friends and familly, the drawing of believers and unbelievers alike toward a great and mighty God, and the strength and warm smile of our little girl Faith make a Dad proud to be just tiny piece of his of his great plan.

As I was thinking of all the things I would like to say durring her dedication, one of the thoughts that came to mind is how I would have asked for none of this (heck I still ask him to take it all away), but all of the wonderful things listed above would have never come to pass had Faith not been born the way she was. Looking back I wouldn't have it any other way.

Im reminded of our first post. Our verse for Faith remains unchanged. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, "delares the Lord," plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Lord,
Thanks for the opportunity to be their father, to be able to see your great works through them and to know what it means to love, as you have loved us.

We got a good video of Faith laughing last week, enjoy! Oh yeah and thanks to everyone who came to her dedication, it really meant a lot to us.
