my reid isaiah.

my reid isaiah is turning into a little man right before my eyes. i remember this day just 9 short months ago...i don't think he even stays that still for a second unless he's sleeping anymore...

this weekend we are dedicating him at our church. our church believes:
In Scripture there is an example of dedicating children to the Lord. In 1 Samuel 1:11, 26-28, Hannah vowed to dedicate her child to the Lord if He would grant her one. The Lord honored her request and she kept her vow, dedicating Samuel to the Lord. “ . . . then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life.” 1 Samuel 1:11

before our kids are born I ask the Lord for a verse for them. Reid's verse comes with a story. He was breech for at least a month before birth.... although we truly trusted God we wondered why we'd have to go through a c-section etc. but we trusted that God knew best. we or should i say i shed lots of tears, said lots of prayers and as i studied the book of Isaiah (his middle name) i came to a verse that brought me joy & peace and i knew that that would be his verse. so here's just a little something i made for him....:)

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD God is an everlasting Rock.
Isaiah 26:3 &4

because this is now a fave verse of mine i had sweet floweret make me a key fob to see it more frequently.

oh & pics to come of the adorable little man on the dedication.. in full out fedora and bow tie... just wait.

trusting the LORD,
