A Precious Moment

On this incredible, exhausting, exciting, scary, amazing, demanding, fantastic journey that is parenting, there are some moments that really bless my socks off.  Most of them involve watching each of my children develop a strong faith for the Lord. 

A faith I never had as a child. 

A faith that is second nature to them. 

A faith that is all their own.

A faith, I pray, they never turn away from.

Last Sunday Bruiser was baptized.  He was so excited!  It was a decision he made all on his own.  It was a decision of obedience and a way to display his love for Jesus.  Jesus, himself, was baptized out of loving obedience to His Father God, and to set an example for us to follow.  Jesus' own baptism marked the beginning of His ministry here on earth at the age of thirty.

I can only imagine the ministry that lies ahead for my precious 7 year old! 


One thing I know for sure: God has special plans for you, Bruiser!



"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."  Matthew 28:19
