a little baptism...

i've heard it said that there's nothing more wonderful or reassuring in life than knowing that your children have chosen Christ. and i agree...we live in this world that is fallen and full of things that satisfy for the moment, but a life lived in Christ is one lived for His glory and is one that finds real fulfillment and joy.

i saw that today...in the baptism of my jk and sofia.  and in the company of family and friends and our amazing church family, westfield horizon christian fellowship.  and since we're still worshipping  in the school, we did a little baptizing in the old hot tub on the deck.

we started with praising God for His Son, Jesus...and praying for our kiddos.  what a great gift.



and then you can see for yourself what was next...





dead to sin and alive in Christ...

and then there was simply celebration with the kiddos who had chosen to be baptized.  what a great joy and amazing time to see God working in the kids hearts.

so, today, we praise God for all He is...for all He has already done...and say Thank You for the battle is already won and we are simply redeemed by His grace and not of ourselves.
