Zeb's Dr Seuss party part 3:
The important bit.
At each of our children's first birthday parties, we set aside some time to dedicate them to God. For Zeb, it went something like this:
We watched a movie of his first year.
I read some words of advice from "Oh the Places You'll Go".
("On and on you will hike.
And I know you'll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are")
Tim shared with friends and family why we chose Zeb's name, and our dreams for his future.
(That he would grow into his strong name, and be an influencer and leader in his home, school, workplace and his community)
We recited a verse from the Bible.
("Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong" Corinthians 16:13)
Then as a family, we prayed and made a commitment to raise Zeb in God's way.
We are so thankful to God for the gift of our son, Zebulon John, and we can't wait to see him grow in the years to come!
