A Candle for My Daughter’s Dedication

When I met my husband, I was not a Christian. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I ever did though, and he taught me about the God that he serves. I knew that my life had changed even more so than just meeting and falling in love with him because of that. We were married, and it was not long before I found out I was pregnant. Nine months later, I gave birth to a beautiful daughter. One of the first things I did the week after I got home was look at dedication and baptism candles online.

I did not want my daughter going through life lost like I had. I am so grateful that God had a better plan for me than I did for myself, and I wanted my daughter to know that love from the very beginning of her life. My husband and I knew that we were going to dedicate her life to God, and I wanted to order a candle that would be a keepsake for her when she is older. I order a lot of candles from Heartfelt Candles, an online candle shop, so I went there first.

I had a feeling they would have exactly what I wanted, and they did not disappoint. I was able to design my own if I wanted to, but I like several of the dedication and baptism candles that they had already on the site. I liked the ones that had a picture of a baby on them, and I thought that one of those along with her name and a cross would be perfect. Jesus died on the cross for her, and having the cross on her dedication candle was very fitting. I want her to look at the candle in the future and understand just what the cross means. I’m so thankful she is getting a better start in life than I did!

Deals in Colorado for Direct TV

I just bought a house on a side of mountain, in Colorado, and it is really a pretty house, but I need to get TV hooked up for the house. I am afraid that I will not be able to get cable, even if I wanted to do so, because my house is in such a remote location. Therefore, my only option is to get direct tv in colorado and I want to find a deal soon, because I am already living in this new house. At the moment, I do not have any source of entertainment, other than watching television on my phone. That is not very fun, but it is something. Well, I can actually cast stuff from my phone, to my television set, but it is not like I have a lot of programming to choose from when I do so.

I can’t wait to have hundreds of channels again. I have always liked having satellite, because of all of the channels. When I was in high school, my parents had satellite for a few years, before switching back. It was nice while it lasted, and I am not even really sure why they switched back. I know that there was an incident where my brother and I figured out the code for the television, and purchased a lot of pay per view programming behind their back. They definitely were not happy about that, but at the time, I did not really realize how much money I was costing them. I definitely felt bad about it afterwards. Hopefully, it is more difficult to do that on the box that I will get through my new satellite provider. However, my son is not really old enough to use a remot e yet, so it is not something that I have to worry about right now.
