what a blessed weekend! i am not even sure i can express to the fullest what i am feeling right now. on sunday i fulfilled a twenty year desire of mine....to be baptized! i have believed in Jesus since i was six years old, but have let so many things get in the way of outwardly showing my dedication to Him (ridiculous to let so many things get in the way.) it was wonderful, but what was even more wonderful was to be baptized with both of my daughters. how cool is that? alan and i want to be the best parents we can be and want the best possible lives for our girls.... and the best possible life is a life with Jesus. we ask for your prayers and support as we raise these girls to know and love Jesus, showing them unconditional love.
kylee, i am so proud of you. you were such a big girl. i am so glad that you know Jesus and know how much he loves you. i just love hearing you talk about him (she frequently tells me about the cross, how "he rose then died for us.") and sing songs about him. but the neatest thing is to hear you tell me that "he lives in my heart." he sure does my sweet girl! a child's faith, unbelievable!!!
miss alaina jean, you will never remember this day, but we will. we are committed to love you and your sister just as Jesus loves you.....with everything we are. we pray that you to will know and choose his love for you.
this day wouldn't have been the same with out our family and friends to be there with us. you play a part in who we are and so we thank you. thank you so much for sharing this very special day with us, it really means a lot. we love you very much.
(kylee has been playing "baptizing," it's freaking hilarious. she baptizes me then i have to baptize her..."in father, son in holy spirit and i seal (as she puts her thumb up to my forhead)," so funny. kylee you are awesome!!)
