baby blessing

This was more like a prayer shower so to speak. Gifts were optional. Simple. Prayer was encouraging edifying and a wonderful way to encourage a mammas heart. I think that often times after a mom has had her first baby or even first of each gender we don't recognize her or the baby with a shower. That is because our culture says that a baby shower is about gifts, party games & food. After the mom has multiple children we think that she doesn't "need" a shower because she has everything for the baby. I think it is just the opposite. Mammas with lots of babies need to be reminded just how special their baby is, that is just as exciting as the first few or however are in her family. It can be a time of celebration of life, calling forth destiny of the baby in prayer and really can be a sweet sweet time. It doesn't have to be fancy. Last night we did dessert & coffee. A few people brought gifts, most didn't. We spent time in fellowship, prayer & had a wonderful night blessing baby number four of a dear friend.
