Jackson's baby dedication was held this month at our church.  And I have to say that I love how our pastor does baby dedications.  He treats each family individually and each baby gets his own personal dedication service.  As with Shawn and Clayton's dedication, Brian and I both were presented with roses as symbols of our love as parents.  Brian received a red rose, symbolizing the sacrifice a father makes in providing for his family, as well as the sacrifice that Jesus made with His blood on the cross.  I received a white rose, symbolizing the pure love a mother has for her child, as well as the pure and unconditonal love that Jesus has for us.  Our pastor then prayed over us, and then said a special prayer over Jackson for the life he will lead.  It really is a beautiful ceremony, no matter how many times you've witnessed it! 
Thanks to Rhonda for the pics!
