Palm Sunday and Baptism

Yesterday,  April 17, 2011, Palm Sunday, was a very special day for us. Our sweet 7 year old (or as he would say 7 3/4 years) son Brandon, got baptized.   It was a blessed day indeed.  My oldest 3 children have all asked Jesus in their hearts and have been baptized now (Analeigh being our only one left and she is only 3 so probably a little while to go still) and there is no greater blessing to me as a mom than to know that no matter what happens in this lifetime, that we will spend eternity together in the presence of our precious Lord and Savior one day.
I got to take a few pictures, I wanted to share with you.
Brandon, I love you so much, I am so happy for you and that a year ago you asked Jesus in your heart and now you wanted to go forward in church to let everyone else know about your decision through getting baptized.   You are a joy sweet boy and your daddy and I are very happy for you, not only are you our precious son, but you are also our brother in Christ.   I love you and pray that God will use you for mighty things for His glory.

Waiting to get baptized and right before Pastor Stan dunked you under the water.  You were really nervous. 
Baptizing you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
