Dedication, Dedication, Dedication, that’s what you need...
...are words from the popular theme tune for Roy Castle’s 1970s entertainment show: Record Breakers.
It continued “…if you wanna be the best, if you wanna beat the rest, oh-oh dedication’s what you need.” This still very much applies today.
Mo Farah, the British long-distance runner, endured four years of a gruelling training regime before the 2012 Olympics: high altitude running, a strict diet and even an underwater treadmill for recovery… day after day after day. His dedication paid off with two gold medals!
Today, Eva Alys Dumbrill is having her dedication. At just under 8 months old she’s a little young to run for 10,000m gold. Though one day maybe!
The biblical meaning of dedication is when a place, object or person is set apart to fulfil an exclusive God-given purpose.
Whatever Eva’s may be, as a loving grandpa and uncle, we will be joining with Lucy and Ed in making a public commitment to help raise Eva in the knowledge, goodness and love of God.
To be all that God has made her to be.
