My darling daughter was baptized yesterday, this is a big deal. She's 6, she gets it. When she was 2 1/2 or 3, I remember her calling to me from the back seat of the car. "Mama, Mama... I have Jesus in my heart and it feels like angel's wings". Out of the mouth of babes!
Yep, that's me on the right in my basketball shorts and grey shirt (or is it gray?). I was going to wear my "I ❤ to Fart" shirt, but it's white and they warned us at the informational meeting that "due to INTENSE lighting, white clothing is NOT advised!" Whewww...
They baptize the little kids 1st, which is nice... can you imagine how cold and DIRTY the water would be by the end? You know me and my germ "issues"!
We go to a big church....a huge church. You may have heard of it, you may have heard of our pastor, Rob Bell. I went over to youtube to grab one of his video's... boy, is there a LOT of hatin' goin' on out there! Everyone has something to say, everyone wants to pick everything apart. I think Rob is one of the few that gets the truth, but that's my opinion...
Anyway, give him a watch if you'd like.
After all the baptizing and lunch, it was time to get down to some good summer fun, because believe it or not... the sun is out in Michigan!!
Whoo-hooo! I'm going to enjoy it the next 2 weeks before the snow starts flying again! ha!
(those are shark holograms on her goggles- she doesn't have weird neon green eyes!)
a little plug about my BABY HAT DRIVE
As most of you know, my daughter was adopted from China and I left a little piece of my heart there. I'm collecting hats to keep the children and babies warm in the winter. Many live in orphanages that are without heat.
1. make a baby hat, toddler hat, or kid sized hat (you can take the non-crafty way out and buy one if you must)
2. email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for my address.
3. I'll take care of shipping them to CHINA next fall.
any questions- please feel free to email me!!
