A Child of The King

Good morning, dear friends and family! Well here is, as promised; a picture of Lilee's dedication just over a week ago. My brother, Paul, did the video and we're so grateful to get this wonderful event on dvd!!! Thank you, Pauly! Unfortunately, I can't figure out my new camera and how to get the footage to the blog. I'm working on it... sorry.

This picture is taken from the video when Lilee clasped her hands when the Pastor was ready to pray over her. Precious!
Just a little note this morning to share the joy we were able to enjoy in dedicating this precious life to our Savior! This is just so sweet!

All our love to you, the Finches

It's Valentine's Day, Already?

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! This is the national day of celebrating the heart. We are certainly thankful for our little sweetheart and her sweet heart!!!

It seems as though February is flying by and we're all looking forward to Easter and the arrival of Spring. Time goes fast enough, but having the privledge of staying home with "sissy", I start to notice her change right before my eyes. As you can see by this picture, she's growing like a weed! Don't you just love her chubby cheeks?

It has now been just over 2 months since Lilee's surgery and we couldn't be MORE pleased with the results. It's hard to believe that 2 months ago, our lives were saturated with the effects of the news that she had to have open heart surgery. Looking at her today, she's a (not walking, I guess) almost crawling example of our Heavenly Father's faithfulness. Not too many times to we actually experience such drama and get to witness the fruit! PRECIOUS!

Last Sunday, Feb. 10th, Lilee was dedicated at our home church, Century Assembly (http://www.centuryassembly.com/). We were able to have almost all our family with us for the official public announcement that our daughter, Lilee Jane Finch, is dedicated to the MOST HIGH GOD!!! Hallelujah! I will try to post a snip-it of footage we recorded.

Nothing really new to report. No doctor visits, so warning signs and no alerts. It is a wonderful thing and happily makes this blog update uneventful. For now, we just continue to bask in the glow of our healed daughter and enjoy every nuance that is unfolding before our eyes.

Hope you enjoy seeing her pictures as much as we enjoy posting them.

All our love to you and your sweet hearts, this Valentine's Day!

The happy-lovey-dovey Finches
