Malcolm's Baptism

On Sunday, December 7th, our oldest, Malcolm publicly professed his love and belief in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. My husband, his dear daddy, was blessed and honored to do the baptism at our church. Malcolm had been asking to be baptized for the past two years and a question of age, then moving and then simply timing brought us to this day. I prayed that the Lord knew his heart and would provide the right time, and then I chose to wait on Him and let my little boy know, it would be in God's timing. He waited patiently, and the day came and he spoke with the elders from our church and the next Sunday was this day...what a precious, breath taking moment. To see our son, the Lord's child, accept and profess his love for Christ, and yes, at the tender age of almost 8.

My husband and I weren't baptized until adulthood after both growing up in homes that weren't Christian. We both grew up with two very different lives, his bringing tears to my eyes, my own, a wanderer, searching trying to fill the void with everything but the Lord. Our testimonies, both so different but true to the same of God's amazing grace and pursuit of His children. We are both honored and humbled to have been blessed by these three precious boys (and a fourth on the way) and pray for the Lord's guidance, wisdom, grace and mighty hand upon our lives as husband and wife, parents and servants of the Lord. We pray for these young lives entrusted to our earthly care, that we will follow His will and that these children will seek the Lord with their whole hearts...and that the Lord will never let them go. We praise you Lord for your mercy, grace and everlasting love...
