photography by... his daddy
He's been waiting about five years for this day. And it was everything he expected and more. There is a permanent smile on his face... and his mom's and dad's, too.
About five years ago, Christopher was the "towel boy"... he would assist Anthony with water baptism at our church. He held the towels of those being baptized. It was quite an honor to him. At the time he was five years old. He was in kindergarten. Today he is 10... almost 11. And he is in 5th grade... getting ready for middle school.
And today was the day he publicly declared his faith in Jesus Christ by being water baptized. He was cheered on by his church family... including his Kindergarten teacher!
So many thoughts have gone through my head today... seeing Christopher make a decision that will have a life-long impact. Feeling blessed beyond measure. Laughing to myself... how many times have I thought... "If I would have known it was Christopher, I would have had him sooner." Being amazed that God could use someone like me to raise up such a wonderful young man.
My favorite son.
"Mommmmmm... I'm your only son."
It's true... but you're still my favorite.
Thank you, God... I'm thankful everyday... for the gift.
