These are the Days...
Last week, we finally got the chance to dedicate Natali Reid with Jeremy & Shandrika. I've seen a few baby dedications in my time, but this one required direct participation! I did my research, pulled together some resources, asked some protocol questions and hit the pulpit with the prayer I'd get it right by dismissal.
I'm not going into a run-down of my sermon notes or the awesome move of God that happened at the end of service, but I had a catch in my throat as I called those parents up front. These guys left Sri Lanka to make a life for themselves and in the process have two darling creations. While Jeremy never smiles in any picture I've taken with him, he has a soft heart and a fighter's spirit. We love their family dearly... good people... and they're just four of the many reasons we get up every morning. There IS a Cause... and I'm happy to be in the midst of it.
