Grady's Dedication

On Mother's Day we dedicated Grady to God at our church. This a tradition of the church passed down through the Old Testament by Hannah.
1 Samuel 1:24-28
"After he was weaned, she (Hannah) took the boy with her, young as he was, along with the three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the Lord at Shiloh. When they had slaughtered the bull, they brought the boy to Eli, and she said to him, "As surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord. I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord." And he worshiped the Lord there.
Even Mary dedicated Jesus at the temple when He was born. We are very humbled and privileged to follow in their footsteps. We are so blessed by the gift of parenthood God has given us through Grady. We pray that he will grow up to be a man of God, to love him passionately and love others radically through Him. Our commitment to Him to be parents that continually point him back to Jesus and to demonstrate God's love to him.
We thank God every day that he has given us the gift of Grady!
Our family with our lead pastor, Steve Harling
