Landin's dedication

My Mothers Day was extra special this year, we had Landin dedicated at church. Dedication is a public announcement for the family to say that they are dedicating their child to the Lord and they pledge to raise the child up to know what Jesus Christ our Savior stands for and who he is. We also ask our church family to keep us accountable to this. It is such a blessing to be able to have our church family there and witness this occasion , but to have my parents and brother, Jeremy's parents and siblings, lots of cousins, and Grammie there, to stand with us in the ceremony, now that is an extra special blessing!!! You may notice that Landin is wearing a dress. There is a very good reason for this. That dress is 120 years old and has had five generations of Pepperds dedicated in that very dress. It was originally Greg's grandfathers dress and it has been passed down generation to generation. All of my children have now been dedicated in the same dress that their father, grandfather and two great's have been. What a Christian legacy!
