On Saturday, my son was baptized. (In our church, we are baptized at the age of 8.)
I asked him if he wanted to get a new suit in honor of this special day. He said, "No, I don't need a new suit, but I would really like one of those bow ties." He has always walked to his own beat and that is why we love him. I think he rocked the bow tie, do you agree?
He shared the day with his buddy. They were born a couple of weeks apart. I can't believe they are old enough to be baptized!
It was such a wonderful day. We were surrounded by our amazing friends and family - Mark's parents came out from California. I will write more about it on my private blog but can't resist an opportunity to testify: Baptism is a saving ordinance. The Spirit is a gift from God.
