Bethany's Baptism October 19th, 2008
Bethany wore the same dress that Naomi wore for her Baptism--it's made from my wedding veil. Joe spoke of Bethany's need for Someone greater than her daddy or momma to save her. As always, he walked down the center aisle while the church sang "Jesus Loves Me." She was a little doll for the whole thing.
When we got home, Jacob picked up these flowers and said, "Mom, where do you want these?" He knew we were all getting ready for the party and wanted to help. He looked so grown up and just like a delivery man, I had to take his picture!

Bethany's friend Titus was baptized during the 11 o'clock service today. He (and his family) joined us for Bethany's party.

Thanks to all those who came to celebrate God's goodness with us. We are blessed with a Mighty Savior, a wonderful (growing) family, and great friends!
