Baby Dedication

Carolina was dedicated today. What that basically means is that we are promising to raise her in church and share our faith with her, and in turn our church body will be there to help us. The gown Carolina was dedicated in was Sean's grandmother's gown. Her Aunt made it for her 90 years ago. Sean's Mother and Sean were also baptized in it. It is a beautiful gown and I am so thankful she was able to wear it! Part of the dedication was for us to pick a verse for our child. I have had this verse since before she was conceived. I had it in mind for Evan, but change it to a Psalms after he was born. I believe it fits Carolina. Grace and Carolina Faith can look at their names together and see how God gives us salvation. Sean's name also means "gift from God" so it just seems like this verse was meant for her.

For by Grace you have been saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God..." Ephisians 2:8
