Alyson Dawn's Christening and Dedication ~ January 20, 2008

We are blessed - - - blessed beyond what we could have ever imagined. "For this child we prayed" and God heard our petition and granted us a precious treasure from heaven. We praise the Lord for sending us Alyson Dawn. Now, we have 'lent' her back to God for His use and glory.
"Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them.
But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven'."
Matthew 19:13-14

Treasures from the Past

Childhood memories of the good ole' South are endless! They include: playing church ~ first vocal recording with my sister (age 4) ~ giving my heart to Jesus at age 5 ~ blistering hot summer church camps ~ a cabin on the campgrounds ~ evening dresses and piano recitals ~ Mother's southern fried chicken ~ Grandma's homemade pies ~ Daddy's southern gentleman ways (and his love for God!) ~ playing "You'll Never Walk Alone" at my high school graduation.

And, the memories go on...
I'll never forget becoming a June bride to my sweetheart (a never ending love story!) ~ giving birth to our miracle from heaven, a tiny blonde-haired angel girl, Shelly Dawn (the sunshine of our lives!).

And, still the memories go on...
Memories from the Mid-West are numerous! They include: Revivals (all over the Country) ~ traveling coast to coast with College Music Groups ~ cold blistery winter mornings on the big bus ~ hundreds of McDonald's burgers ~ making forever friends in out-of-the-way places ~ Friday nights with my Indy family ~ the sweet celebration Home-Going of my Father ~ the precious birth and Christening Service of our Granddaughter, Alyson Dawn.

And, the memories go on...
