Dedication Day



Today we dedicated raising Andrew "in the fear and admonition of the Lord." Everything was going fine until I was handed the mic to say a few words. I got about a half of a sentence in before I was no longer able to speak. What I really wanted to share but couldn't because im a big cry baby is how greatful we are for the church...the whole church. Through the body of Christ, we have experienced the love of Jesus in a very real and meaningful way. You have been instruments of grace to which we owe a debt of love.

The good thing for me is that most days I really love the church, I love it with all its broken, imperfect, messed-up, sinners just like me.

Thank you Jesus for your church.

May Andrew continue to grow and become strong, increase in wisdom and may the grace of God be upon him.

I'm glad I wasn't there . . . ONLY because just reading this post made me all misty eyed. If I was there I would be a big puddle of tears.

it is indeed refreshing to see the grace of God and His love leave a grown man speechless and all teared up.

may we never lose the wonder and awe of the grace of God.

raise that kid to cherish it.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Curt-

I liked the way you closed this blog:
"The good thing for me is that most days I really love the church, I love it with all its broken, imperfect, messed-up sinners just like me."

And to you my brother, I will say thank you for extending the grace of Jesus Christ into my life in such a real and tangible way - for loving this broken, imperfect, messed-up sinner as Jesus Christ does.

Keep being a dispenser of His grace, Curt Chadwick, and thank you for allowing Jesus to use you to so richly dispense His grace into me.

I love you brother- in the One who is a friend of tax collectors and sinners like me!
