HomeEssaysA 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!
