our children have been fortunate to grow up in the same church. pastor bruce baptized all of our children.
a lot of smiling yesterday!one tidbit that made her day a little more memorable was a broken water heater in the baptismal pool. i dipped a finger in water. oh my, now that's cold! so many kind people trying to heat the water with portable heaters. thankfully it brought the temperatures from arctic to icy cold.
"Baptism is an outward sign of our new life in Christ."
"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
it is a wonderful feeling to have the assurance of our children's salvation. all of them! we are so blessed!
and as for the chilly water,
one of her sunday school teachers said it best,
"cold water makes for a warm heart!"
