To experience love...

I sometimes ponder why God made us and why he put us here. I know others may have their own opinions, but I personally have come to the conclusion that God has put us here to experience love in one way or another.

This past Sunday, we dedicated Isla to the Lord. We had her dedicated publicly at our church, and then had an intimate dedication at home. We are committing to raise her to know the Lord, to honor the Lord, to love the Lord and to love others. Not that I didn't experience love before Isla was born, but since she has come into our lives, we have experienced love on a whole new level. We have experienced God's love for us more than ever, and we hope that we show God's love to Isla in the way that we love her and love others.

I though it would be cute to photograph her with a Bible.
She ended up tearing a page or two, so I guess
we will have to fill in the blanks when she gets to that part.

What a precious gift the Lord has given us.
We are so grateful for the gift of Love.


  1. She is so blessed to have you as parents!!! Beautiful pictures. We love her so much, too! Happy Dedication Baby Isla!!

  2. I don't think there is anything more important we can do for our children then raise them to know and love our Lord and Savior. She is blessed to have you as her parents. Also, I love her dress and these pictures are so cute! :)

  3. I love dedication day!! It is the most important statement we can make to ourselves and our children. I'm celebrating with you from where I am! Praise God for Isla, and on a completely different note, how cute is that dress and headband on her beautiful, sweet little self!? What a gorgeous little girl!
