This past weekend, Matt and I were commissioned as parents of Mary Grace. Whereas some churches will baptize babies and others will hold “baby dedications”, our parent commissioning emphasizes the role of the parents in rearing our children in the ways of the Lord. I never fail to be humbled when I am consider the enormous and eternal responsibilities we have been given as mother and father of our children. I am also pretty mortified that I was too distracted/busy to take pictures at the event, so I am assuaging my embarrassment by going the ghetto fabulous route and scanning in Mary Grace’s page from the program.
Oh, and I did get this super cute picture of Matt’s grandparents at parent commissioning! Thanks for coming, Anmama and Pop Allison!
