Last month we lifted Zarriah to the Lord. It is such a blessing to know that your children and grandchildren will be raised as Christens, and the icing on the cake is being a witness to the event. We chose this adorable 2 piece Shantung Dress from Pink Princess for the big day. I’m glad we did, the picture doesn’t do the dress justice. The price was great, and it was exactly what we were looking for, simple but elegant. I’m going to have it cleaned and boxed for Zarriah. We ordered an adorable bracelet; however, it wasn’t shipped. Pink Princess did give me a refund promptly, but when you’re counting on using a particular accessory for a special occasion it can be disappointing when it is not received. Thankfully, a friend of my daughter’s had given Zarriah a bracelet as a gift.
I must say, my little Zarriah was an angel during the service. Because we had the huge carnival party the day before, we only had a small family gathering after the service. We used the ladybug cake made for the carnival party for dessert. Zarriah is enjoying her cake along with her God mother, who is a friend of my daughter’s from college. Amazing lady, she was juggling a 3 month old and a 4 year old that week-end, but still made time to celebrate the Christening with us.
We were so blessed to have so many family members join us at the service. I will always cherish this picture. Zarriah will be able to look back one day, and see how much she is loved and those who stood as a witness to help raise her as a Christian.
