This Week's Scripture


"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!


We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Elijah is His!

Tonight Tommy and I dedicated our sweet little Elijah Stephen to our Lord!!

THE GIFT OF A CHILD
God has blessed the union of a husband and a wife
With a beautiful little baby bringing joy into their lives
For children, adopted or birthed, are blessings sent from God above
A precious gift heaven sent, an expression of God’s love
On the foundation of this love may this child truly grow
Discovering the truths of God and to one day come to know
That Jesus Christ is Lord of all and He has an awesome plan
A destiny only they can fulfil as they take Him by the hand
And walk with Him every day with God’s vision for their lives
And godly passion to fulfil the commission of Jesus Christ.

Dedication is such a special time!

And hey! My youngest is named Elisha (he's almost a year though).

My dad did his dedication, and my Grandmother was there (the last "event" she was alive for). So many memories tied up in that time. Wow.

Congratulations on yours.
