"In the Name of the Father, I Baptize You, My Brother and My Son..."

What an awesome day this was - a daddy having the privilege of baptizing his son. And it wasn't just ANY daddy and ANY son; it was my husband and OUR son. We are without a pastor right now, and since Carl is ordained as a deacon, the church voted to allow him to baptize C. This just made this event even MORE special. What a memory for them both, for us all. :o)

On a different note, I guess you see a duck floating around in one of the pictures. When the choir came down, Carl mumbled, "Who put that duck in there?" I said, "I don't know," and we both laughed. We found it humorous, and felt that someone was just initiating Carl with it being his first baptism. As it turned out we were right, AND we guessed right off who was responsible for it! :o) Needless to say, some in the church were upset about it, but we were not. Sometimes I wish Christians would let themselves laugh at things. I really think they believe it's a sin for Christians to have fun, especially in church!! I fully believe that God has a sense of humor (Have you ever heard some of the sounds that come out of our bodies???), and I hope I don't ever become so stiff and rigid that I become an Old Fart!!!!! And, yes, I said that! (In a joking way, of course. wink wink) :o)

Can I get an Amen!!! I hear you sister :) As a pastors wife I could tell you some stories.

Congratulations on the Baptism and such a special one at that. I can't wait for the day when Rusty gets to Baptize our girls.

What's not to like when somebody like Mikhail Gorbachev acts as a spokesperson for louis vuitton bags , to be honest? It validates all that economic theory on capitalism and the louis vuitton for sale itself looks very stylish and speaks well of Gorbachev's sense of humor about his momentous role in human history. Also, we get a chance to take a look at a very nice Monogram Denim , and that's not a bad thing. Want to like him and buy Monogram Denim Patchwork .
