Baby Dedication

This is a Dutch Cradle Cross. The Dutch place cradle crosses over the beds of their infant children -  that this symbol of Christian faith might early become a part of the child's consciousness. It was given to us today at the Baby Dedication at "K's" church. It was very nice. We stood at the front of the church with the minister and "K" and her parents brought Samuel down the aisle to us. Afterwards we were invited to have lunch at the church as well. Everyone was very welcoming and Samuel was a star!

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14

"Train up a child in the way of he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:06

Congratulations, Samuel!!! How sweet! Love it!
Let me know how you like the seasoning! It is great on everything! You can use it on pasta, meat (chicken, etc...), salad, popcorn, etc...
Have a great day, Tracey!
