With my parents in town this weekend, I wanted to dedicate Zoodle to God at church. Here is the e-mail exchange I had with Kenny, our pastor:
Kenny--My parents will be in town next Sunday the 14th. Can we do Zoodle's dedication that day?
Yes, that would be great!!! If you want me to do anything specific let me know.
Hmm, anything specific. I was thinking we could start doing some sort of cool war paint like Native Americans do for their ceremonies? What do you think?
I was thinking more along the lines of the Vulcan mind meld. :) I don't really even know what that means. :/
Despite our creative ideas, we settled on the normal dedication ceremony.
For the important occasion, Zoodle dressed up in his best shirt, tie, and pocket square.
The brief dedication was great. Pastor Kenny talked about what it means to raise a child in God's ways, and he prayed for us to have wisdom as Zoodle's parents. (We need that wisdom!)
Dedicating Zoodle was a memorable, important occasion. (But I still think war paint and a Vulcan mind meld would have been fun!)
