Angel Baby's dedication ceremony on Coronado Beach
Savannah Rose is our Earth Angel.
The morning of July 27, 2019 on Coronado Island.
Julian and I, along with some of our closest friends and family, dedicated Savvy back to God + this beautiful universe that’s chosen us to be her parents.
Looking at these pictures, my heart just melts with love + gratitude.
Lord, you are faithful!
To our village (near and far, pictured and not) that continues to shower our little family with love + prayers — Thank you! We so appreciate you!
I'm pretty sure we all lost it when Julian raised Savannah to the heavens and prayed for her.
The Spirit washed over us + the ocean splashed around our ankles.
What a dream!
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart." Jeremiah 1:5
On Children by Kahlil Gibran
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, So He loves also the bow that is stable.
Most of these candid moments were captured by our dear friends, Gina + DJ Pacheco, owners of This.x.That Photography in San Diego.
After the ceremony Gina casually said, "I took a couple pics with my phone, I'll send them to you."
OKAAAAAY. I almost died when I saw these. Just WOW.
Look at these beautiful people!
Savannah is so loved, and we are beyond grateful.
Cheers to raising our littles + doing life with a solid tribe!
Jas (+ Sav of course)
