A very Special day.........
"For this child I prayed; and the Lord has granted me the petition that I made to Him." l Samuel1:27
Another milestone, to remind me my baby is growing up!!! Adam had his first Holy Communion today. We have been talking and getting ready for this for a while now, we felt Adam was ready and had a very good understanding of the meaning of this day. For a while now when we would go up for communion and Adam for a blessing, he would ask the pastors if he could have communion so, even though really kids have their first communion at our church in 5th grade, Adam is only in 3rd (but I held him back so he actually should be in 4th) we went ahead and let Adam have his wish. I think the first time Adam asked he was 5 and our pastor really wanted to do it then he told us "you know he probably is more ready than any of us" I thought that was so nice of him. Maybe he was ready but I wanted to make sure he really had more of an understanding of the importance and specialness of the event. Now at 10 I believe he really "got it" and yes, probably more than most of us do. We wish Dylon could have been with us, Adam did wear one of Dylon's cross necklace that he got in Africa, so we felt like his presence was with us. Last night Adam asked if Dylon was in Heaven, I think because it has been so long since we have been able to talk to him on the phone even. He is still out on a patrol we were hoping for a phone call today, but maybe tomorrow. We know though that big brother is very proud of his little brother and we are too! Congratulations Adam!
