Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him.  So now I give him [her] to the Lord.  For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord."  1 Samuel 1 

Last Sunday, we publicly dedicated our precious Grace to God at our church.  It was more of a formality than anything, because long before we ever even saw Grace's face, we dedicated her life to Him.

Sunday, we publicly committed to praying for Grace and raising her according to His will and ways.  I realize that the dedication of her life is not a one time thing.  In the scripture above, Hannah said, in regards to her son Samuel, that she will give him over to the Lord "for his whole life".

All of our family and friends that celebrated the day with us

I have always prayed that God will use Grace's life to draw others nearer to Him.  I know that He already has, and I pray that He will continue to do so.
