Celebrating a birthday and baptism…

by Lisa on June 9, 2014

On Memorial Day weekend we had so much to celebrate. My daughter’s 7th birthday was on that Saturday followed by her baptism the next day. I cannot believe Grace is now 7 and love knowing she has asked Jesus into her heart is priceless. It could not have been a more memorable weekend. Grace accepted Jesus as her savior almost 2 years ago, but we wanted to wait for her to be baptized until she was a little older, making sure she  better understood the meaning of baptism. She has been asking to be baptized for a while.
7th Birthday

A big day, it was Grace’s birthday and later in the day her party at the local skating rink.

Birthday Skate Party

Party fun at the rink in her new roller blades.  Yes, she is sporting a Hello Kitty shirt and pink leopard print capris. She is a fashionista.
Baptism Day

The next day our church hosted a baptism service at a ranch outside of town, which had a lake and pavilion.  It was a wonderful day.  My husband, Chris, baptized Grace.  It was an awesome moment to see my child baptized by her own father.
The video below  is our pastor, Eric, talking with Grace before the baptism. He was asking her why she wants to be baptized. So precious.

Below is a 4 minute video of the some of the people baptized with Grace. I hope you will watch and be blessed as these people have taken a step in faith and want to show the world they are followers of Christ. Grace is the second to last one baptized on the video.


Wishes for my girl…

Grace #TBTThis picture always cracks me up.  It was taken three years ago and whenever looking at it, I cannot help thinking it looks like a mugshot. That eyebrow slightly raised and semi smirk….. is she secretly scheming to take over the world?  I hope so.  I want Grace to always feel she can do anything she puts her mind to.  I want her to know there are not limits.  Dream big.  Work hard.  Make sure God is in the plan and ask Him to help her succeed.  I want her to love Jesus in a way I could never even imagine.  I want her to say YES when God calls her to be more for Him and less of her.  I want all these things and so much more for my daughter.

Let her always remember this….

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul.  “Therefore I will hope in him” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.  Lamentations 3:21-25
