Baptism

My sweet daughter's Baptism...


She is so gentle.
So mild.
Kind hearted.


Well the list could go on and on!


I think she exhibits all the Fruits of the Spirit!  Her tree of faithfulness to the Lord is full!


Here she is before the baptism.  All full of anticipation.


She has been saved for a while now, we just were waiting for her to ask to be baptized.  She began asking her daddy some time ago what it means to be baptized and why she would want to be baptized.


Her big sister even wrote a poem about her and her sweetness along with her Faith in the Lord Jesus!


About 6 or so months ago, this precious little one asked me if it was okay for her to love God more than she loved me!  She was afraid that it would hurt my feelings!  Well, I told her that I could take a lesson from her example, and should love God more than I love her...


She is very quick to point out that God is the only Awesome thing... That He is to be lifted up and praised...that He is to be thanked for all the good He does and to pray for those who need Him!


I love her so much!
May the Lord continue to not only use her as an example in our family but, but also to others lives.  Praise God for little ones who love Him!


She said that she accidentally opened her mouth when she went below the water... 
But she was okay.


She was excited about the fact that her baptism had happened.  "Now she can make disciples."  she said.

When I came to the part about her asking you if it was okay to love God more than you I had tears in my eyes and a big smile on my face :) I pray that God blesses her in many ways, all of her siblings also :')
