This Sunday, our sweet 5 month old will be dedicated to the Lord (Luke 2:21-40). When “F” is old enough to understand Jesus & all His glory, we will encourage him to pursue baptism. As baptism is a personal, public decree of believing & surrendering your life to God, we do not feel that babies need to be baptized (that’s a whole other post). My baptism was not special to me because I don’t remember it & I didn’t have a choice. At a later time, both my husband and I plan on getting re-baptized, but for now, we are just focusing on getting our son dedicated.
Anyways, to mark the special occasion, we wanted to gift our baby with a small gift as a way to remember this special day.
