Emi Gets Dedicated

Today at church, Emi was dedicated to the Lord.

We take this practice from the Old Testament. Hannah wanted very much to have a child, but she was barren. She prayed for a miracle and made a vow that if God would give her a child, she would then dedicate this child to the Lord. Of course, she had a son, named Samuel.

Part of the idea of dedicating a child is for others to hold you accountable; are you training your child in the ways of God?

Emi is a joy and blessing in our life.

She did cry when Pastor held her though.
