As some of you know, I’m working on our family tree. I found out that our grandmother had about 15 children (8 of them survived), but then again she didn’t have TV.

I have joined facebook

Well, it had to happen… I have finally succumbed to pressure and joined Facebook.

I must admit that it is quite overwhelming to find out how many friends I have been ignoring, and some of them for so long. I really must make an effort, hey.

It is interesting that quite a few of my friends have also only joined Facebook quite recently.

Anyway… I better go see who else is out there… LOL

Isaiah’s Dedication

On Sabbath Afternoon at 4.30 pm we had Isaiah Dedicated. It was a lovely time.

We were blessed to have Pr Joe Webb perform the dedication for us before he moved to QLD. We had a lot of our family and friends come and support us with this decision. Some travelling up from Sydney and down from Port Macquarie.

The University Students that Ben is working with contributed to the service with songs and a beautiful poem.

It was a very special time for us and we are very thankful to everyone that came and helped make it a memorable event. Afterwards we had a late afternoon tea.

We had the dedication in Jesmond Park as we thought it would be great to do it outside especially since the weather has been just beautiful!!
