What could be more wonderful than a baby blessing? A baby blessing for a couple that I married a few years back! Sklar Rae Webber is the adorable baby girl of Leesa and Frank. Leesa had her dressed in a lace onesie with little lace bootie wraps on her tiny feet. She was smiling and calm until I got to the blessing where she fussed just a bit. Most babies don't like the water part. I do my baby blessings with rose petals in blessed water and lay the wet petals on the top of the head, forehead, heart, hands and feet. It's a beautiful, moving servicing welcoming the baby into the community and dedicating her life to God.
The weather held out although it was very windy which blew out all the candles. I didn't even bother to put any rose petals on the table knowing they would blow away. A baby blessing is a lovely way of acknowledging the incredible gift from God a baby is to a family. Leesa and Frank are so blessed and will make wonderful parents. I am so honored to have been a part of this special time in their lives.
