Celebrating Easter

Our family celebrated Easter with a day full of wonderful activities.  The most important, however, was the Baptism of my oldest daughter, Ella.  With all that has been going on in our lives recently, we are really proud that Ella had a special day to celebrate such a wonderful life decision.  THE most important decision she will ever make.  She's such a big girl and just absolutely in love with the Lord.  She has been so blessed to have a life filled with people who love her and who have taught her about God. 

Below are pictures of my friend Nicole and her son, John Owen.  Nicole and I have been friends since birth.  She's one of those true, tried friends that will always be a special part of my life.  Nicole and I were baptized together when we were 8 years old.  What a special day to see our children welcomed into the Kingdom of God on the same day. 

Congratulations Ella.  Mommy is so very proud of you.

  4. I was seven years old when my daddy baptized me on Easter Sunday evening. I have never forgotten it. Congratulations to Ella and the little boy. I pray for Lucy in the night and the day. May your soul be still and know God this day. Cynthia

  8. I believe there is no greater joy for a mom then to see her child give their life to Christ and then take a public stand and be baptized. What a lovely gift from God for Ella to do this in amongst this trial you are going through. Bless her sensitive heart to the calling of God.

    I celebrate with you! :)
