Our baby was baptized this past weekend. What an encouraging time in a family’s life. I usually cry at the baptism of anyone’s child (If you know me, you are not all that surprised 🙂 But what a beautiful picture- to have a church and a pastor asking parents to raise this child in a way in which he or she will know God and His word, to have parents who are acknowledging in front of witnesses that they will do this, and to have a congregation agree to do all that they can to help. What confidence it gives me as a parent that I will have help on this long journey. To all of you who so faithfully help us to raise our children- thank you!
