But this is BIG! No, I mean really BIG!!
My oldest, Game Master, got baptized! He received Christ as his Lord and Saviour two years ago, the day before Mother's Day. He chose Mother's Day (which was also his birthday) to be baptized! My husband, "Papa", did the 'dunking'. It was a big day! A day I will never forget!
Here is Game Master telling of his love for Jesus and proud Papa getting ready to do the honors...
Here I am posing for a quick picture before the actual event. I'm just so proud of him!! He was so excited!
On a similar note, I am still elevated from Sunday's Mother's Day message at church! It was so inspiring and uplifting, and yet challenging! I was reminded of the guilt that we put on ourselves as moms! (Okay, you know who you are! I just talked to you today and you were really kicking yourself for letting your child watch TV so much this afternoon because you were exhausted!) He also talked about the high expectations that we frequently put on ourselves to be everything to everybody all the time. He reminded us to not get our 'image' from the mirror. He told us of how God wants us to rely on Him for everything we need, for everything our families need. He encouraged us to leave free - free of all that binds us, free from the world's idealisms. It truly was freeing! I hope you are free too!
