Michael Is Going to Be Dedicated This Sunday

I'm so excited to share that our sweet baby boy is going to be dedicated next Sunday. Jason's parents are traveling to be here for it, and it's going to be a very special time. One of the things we need to do to get ready is to choose a Scripture verse for Michael. Michael is such a precious gift, and I hardly know how to express all that I feel about him and about God for sending him into our lives. Here are a few we are considering:

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

"As surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." And he worshiped the LORD there. 1 Samuel 1:26-28 (NIV) *I'm thinking of just using the part in bold, as Jason will be the one to say the verse*

Psalm 127:3-5 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I need feedback! I can't decide which one to choose and maybe there's another verse out there I should consider that I haven't thought of. Suggestions and thoughts are welcome!

Ok not a verse suggestion, but if a song is needed I have one. I LOVE Borning Cry. To me it's a song from parent to child (the parent being you, the parent, and God, the Father).
