Sunday, May 3, Ruth was baptized in our church. It was a choice Keith and I made with ease; we knew we wanted to raise our newest girl in the church as we are the older kids.
It took us awhile to get organized and a date that worked for the family. We were waiting for the weather to turn too, we didn't want to have his family traveling so far in our snowy winter this year. This date enabled us to celebrate her baptism and Caden and Caleb's birthday with one luncheon after church.
The service itself also coincided with communion Sunday, which is always something moving for me.
Our family stood in the front of the church with us during the baptism and tears welled in my eyes as she was blessed. Keith said the same thing that night as we talked about it later.
Ruth, you are loved by your family and your church family. We strive to raise you to know Christ and live like him.
