Kimia’s dedication

IMGP3582 edited Some events are very special. Yesterday Kimia Lanoie was dedicated to God. A big day for my littlest granddaughter. Kind of special for a Father’s Day since my son is the proud dad.

At times like this my thoughts return to the past; to Eric’s dedication and our idealism at that time as we set out to raise our first child to know God. My memories run over all the years in between then and now. Memories are both funny and serious but all those times remembered are savored and pondered over one more time.

And here we are – a new generation well on its way. Our children beginning to collect their own memories of their children’s lives.

As for Grandma – well I will remember this day. It goes in my collection bag of good times and special memories. I will remember this day as she grows and as those occasions come when she will need to be reminded that she is loved and cared for by her parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and by her Heavenly Father.

  1. What a beautiful picture. The dedication was really special, too. Reminded me of Olivia’s dedication, almost 1 year to the day.

    Yes, it was a special day. The parents looked proud…but I stole a glance over at you too!;-)

    I loved to hear those words again, of commitment, of promise and dedication to God and to Kimia….especially the promises of the entire congregation. It’s good to be reminded of our role in the lives of the church children.
