This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Emily is "Recognized"

At our church, we have had "Baby Recognition Weekend" twice a year. (We'd like to make it once a year, but we have so many babies, we may be rethinking that!) Anyway, this was the weekend, and Emily got her official recognition today. It was such a special morning. It seemed just like yesterday that Jennifer was a little girl standing on a stage reciting a line or singing a song in a children's program. Now she's up there with her great husband, holding their own child. Wow. 
It was powerful to hear Bruce's challenge to all the parents, encouraging them to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  I would recommend you read Jennifer's own account of this's very moving.  

Here are a few video images--sorry about the quality.
