Emily's Baptism

We had the pleasure this Sunday of seeing Emily welcomed into God's family as she was baptized at our church. Although she was a little cranky going up to the front of the church, she was very calm as she received the water on her head. It was also great to see her introduced to the congregation and welcomed by everyone.  She certainly did her best to look cute, while wearing the dress in which Sarah was baptized and (occasionally) my baptism blanket.

"I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you." (Genesis 17:7)

  1. Plantingas - sorry we missed Emily's baptism, but we had to head to Chicago before our trip overseas to see my parents. However, Congratulations!!! She looks adorable and was, I'm sure, a perfect angel throughout the whole night!
