(ECC.9:9) Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest...
I can say it has been a joyful 60 years for my parents,sister (you know her as Picket) & me pulled off a small interment surprise get together on their 60th wedding anniversary, I was the first to arrive , as dad answered the door I said hello I got a call you needed a decorator for a party LOL, then sister came in behind me , it was a great surprise for them both
When God answered Hannah's prayer by giving her a son, she remembered her vow:
"As surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." And he worshiped the LORD there. 1 Samuel 1:26-28 (NIV)
little Noah is dedicated to the Lord this morning
(internet info)Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way, prayerfully until he or she can make a decision on his or her own to follow God. Parents who make this vow of commitment are instructed to raise the child in the ways of God, and not according to their own ways. Some of the responsibilities include teaching and training the child in God's Word, demonstrating an example of godliness, disciplining according to God's ways, and praying earnestly for the child.
We have truely had a wonderful & blessed weekend celebrating the joy of 60 years with my parents, listening to dad tell childhood stories & singing old songs, got him on video too lol, celebrating the dedication of our grandson Noah, as I looked around the pews in front & around me filled with all three of my grown children , my son-n-laws & all of my grandchildren & inlaws I could not stop the tears as I thanked God for blessing me so
