After the movie we went out with our friends to Panera and just had a good time of fellowship with one another. When we returned home the house was clean and the girls had a show prepared for us. They were so stinkin' cute!
Today my oldest got baptized in the church. She has such a sweet heart for God. She was actually already baptized in the bathtub because she was just like the Ethiopian in the story of Phillip and the Ethiopian in Acts. Immediately when she gave her heart to God she wanted to be baptized, waiting was not an option. As soon as Daddy came home she was baptized.
Today she wanted to do it in front of the church body to show everyone her heart belongs to Jesus. She also wanted to support her sister who was planning on doing it as well today. Unfortunately the fear she had of all those people watching kept her from doing it today. But I told her not to worry, she could do it anytime and anywhere she wanted to. So she watched her sister and cheered for her.
It was also a sweet moment because the pastor that knew them best got to do it. He was our support when we were leading the college group so he got to see all the good, bad, and ugly of the children through the past five years! Especially the good stuff like traveling on retreats and such.
It was also sweet because their god-mother was present assisting the entire time. Another sweet moment was my prayer partner and her children who are great friends of the girls were present as well. All of us up in the small baptistery area. It was nice though. My favorite part was that the day of the baptism was during an amazing message on prayer-the conclusion of a great 7 -part series my pastor has been preaching. If interested you can listen to it on his blog from my sidebar.
Hope you all had a blessed weekend.
