new life

last weekend was big.

(i thought about not sharing this. but i can't help myself. it was too incredible for me not to share.)

last sunday, i was baptized.

honestly, i'm not going to go into the whole story here. basically i've known Jesus since i was fourteen.

so it's taken me the last ten years to finally make this decision.

(are you guys really believin' the whole 'i'm twenty-four' thing? hope not.)

anyway, it was wonderful. i had buz, and two of my accountability partners in the water with me. and then, friends and family came to celebrate.

God is good.

why am i looking at my pastor this way? bless my heart.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

buz was so happy and proud.

the infamous bff.

big h's response when i got out of the pool..."oh mama, you did a great job!"

goo was so pumped when we were done. (read: she did NOT care for not being able to be with us.)

davis, me, buz, and bff. and, of course, goo. who couldn't decide whether or not she wanted to be in the picture.

and my cute parents. seriously. aren't they cute?

Janet, that is the coolest thing I have seen or read in a very long time! I'm so happy for you! I love the pictures, what a joy filled day!

I am grinning from ear to ear for you, friend. What a special day.

My husband and I have never been baptized. We were both christened as babies, but never made the public declaration. We have been thinking about it. Thanks for the motivation!!

Yep, nothing like getting baptized in a Dr Pepper shirt, that rocks! Looks like a happy day!

Hi Wisner,
I only know you from Weentrab. I used to nanny for her when Benny was a wee one. You may remember me from past birthday parties...

I just wanted to say how cool I think it is that you got baptized! I grew up in a Christian home, accepted Christ in preschool, but decided to wait until I was an adult to get baptized. It is a big decision. I am really excited for you!!
