I got to see my eight year old third cousins (yes, that does sound distant, but we're still cousins:)) be baptized today.
It was beautiful.
It was spiritual.
It was awesome.
I felt slightly teary pretty much the whole time. They asked me to say the closing prayer. I thought I could do it when I agreed to it a couple days ago. But who was I kidding? You know how I am.
I got four words into it.
Four words..."Oh flip." (Seriously. Had those words pass through my brain while praying) And I cried the rest of the prayer. But I didn't make any ridiculous noises. That's something.
I am thankful for family and specifically today, to know this family. I am thankful for baptism and other ordinances that God has given us to teach us as we make promises with Him.
What are you thankful for today?
