That is the word that is printed on the shirt that McCall wants to wear to school tomorrow. Today was one of the most significant days in my life as a mother. My little man was baptized tonight!
He publicly professed his faith through baptism tonight along with 8 other people at Newspring Florence’s first baptism service. It was held at the indoor pool at the YMCA. They each received a blue shirt that said “washed.” It was amazing to watch people that I have shared life with baptized.
He had to do a creative writing project a few week ago about “A Special Event in My Life…”. This is what he wrote:
A specile Event in my life was when I asked Jesus into my hart. It is vary inportant in my life because I had never done it in my life. It means that I will go to God when I Die. When I was finesed I fellt good.
I was on the swing when I did it. At furst I was gruppy and I whent on the swing. I did not know wat was about to happin. Asking Jesus Into your hart is good. All that you hafe to Do is pray.
He has asked for two years when he was going to get “bap-i-tized”. As parents we all pray lots of things for our kids, but the one I have prayed the most is that my boys would enter into an intimate relationship with Christ and submit their lives to him at an early age. It is amazing to see fruit of this!
So many people have poured into McCall’s life and many of them were there tonight. Pat gave McCall a leather bound Bible with his name engraved on it and we gave him a Bible cover with his name monogrammed on it. He was so excited about everything. It has been an amazing night!
So many of my family members live far away and were not able to be there tonight. I thought it might be neat if people left messages for McCall here on my blog. So if you feel so inclined leave a message of congratulations for my sweet boy and I will make sure he reads it. Thanks for sharing in this special time with us:)
