water baptism.

I love catching life.

Our life.

My children's lives.

Lives deciding to honor God.

Lives being lived for Him.

A couple weekends ago the 'Bigs' were water baptized at our church during our monthly fellowship meal.

I love seeing the desire for Jesus in my children. They get it.

They understand following and serving Jesus.

It amazes someone like me who was not raised in church to now have children who were born and are being raised in the church-- that they are able to see a different way of life that I never knew existed.

My husband says its like looking out one window your whole life only to find out one day that there's another window with a completely different view. A view far different and unspeakably better.

I am blown away at how God has blessed my life. He has given me so much that I don't deserve.

i didn't get saved till i was 51...and wow has God shown me so much. I wish I had known Him and served him way before I did...but now I can look back and see all the blessings, protection and love He showered on me when I didn't even know it.
Love to see the young ones in a Christian home.
God Bless you all!!

That was a beautiful introspection.

Thoughts for the day said...

Isn't it wonderful? I was not raised in the church either. Was baptized at age 16 and it changed me it didn't change the circumstances of my life but it changed me from the inside...eventually to the outside.
God be with you as you raise these beautiful children.
