Today was Lucy’s baptism. Just like this time last year (at Cord’s), I was overwhelmed at the beautiful promises that are made to Lucy- that God has put her in a family that promises to teach her about Him, pray with her and for her, and raise her to know His word. And then the last promise, that the congregation and our extended family promises to help us raise her that way too. What comfort there is in that support.
Here is the whole family after the service:
I kept putting the paci in to get her quiet and then I would pull it out to get the picture. She was so sweet during the baptism. No tears or crying. But during picture taking, she was a little tired!
By the end she was hanging in my arms like a rag doll. We laughed so hard! I wanted lots of pictures of her like that because that is her favorite way to be held. Here is one of me and my sister with my little rag doll:
Thanks for coming up today sweet family!
