Yesterday Was Amazing!

Monday, May 7, 2012
Yesterday was simply amazing! L.J. decided to stand up and declare his love for the Lord and be water baptized! It's one of those moments that brings such joy to a mother's heart! He's has been wanting to be baptized for a few months but my poor boy is so shy, he at one point asked could we just have the pastors over to baptize him in the bath tub. I giggled, "L.J. that's kind of missing the point of public declaration!" Our amazing children's Pastor Fawnda had a talk with L.J. and was able to ease many of his fears and he said, "let's do it!"  This day was one of the few times I had seen my husband cry! The other times where when we got married, our beautiful babies where born, and of course when a close family member has passed.

He's ready to take the plunge!

He was so happy!
Wait there's more...
My Mother In-law felt moved in the spirit and she too took the plunge and made a commitment to the Lord at the very last minute! Our church was prepared with extra clothes for anyone feeling the spirit move in them!
Simply Amazing! Oh, wait there's a little more 40+ people where baptized and even more had come to the Lord back in November! Simply amazing! Sorry, I just can't help myself.. Simply Amazing!!!
