Baptism

Yesterday was such a special day for my little family. T and J were baptized together at church yesterday morning and it was such a sweet experience. I thought it was especially sweet that our pastor spoke directly to my two girls and told them of their responsibility as well, and the expressions on their faces as they listened carefully to what he said, just tugged at my heartstrings. I am proud of my men today. So proud.


"I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
Mark 1:8 (New International)

"As he preached he said, 'The real action comes next: The star in this drama, to whom I'm a mere stagehand, will change your life. I'm baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a kingdom life. His baptism-a holy baptism by the Holy Spirit-will change you from the inside out.'"
Mark 1:8 (The Message)
