A Special Baptism...

 My great niece, Caroline, is amazing.  She'll be just 7-years-old next month, but she is wise way beyond her years.

About two years ago she wanted to talk to her parents about accepting Christ as her Savior.   So they did.  And she did.

They all decided they would wait till she got older for her to be baptized.

Well, a few months ago she approached her parents and said she was ready to be baptized... and that she wanted her daddy to do the honor.  And she wanted to do it at Lake Grapevine. 

And she did and he did..... and it was wonderful.  WONDERFUL. 
And so very touching.

It was Saturday afternoon, November 9.

Here are some pictures I took....
There John is reading from Romans chapter 6, verses 1-3

Then they walk out into the water....

And the parents rejoiced...
And we all did.


Here is the Bible passage John read right before the baptism....
What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?  By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?  Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.  - Romans 6:1-3

I believe God is going to use precious Caroline in mighty ways.

Well, God is ALREADY using her in mighty ways.


I'm so glad she is a part of my life.

When I read this, my heart was about to burst with joy. What a special moment for little C... and her sweet parents. Leading by example for sure... So glad you got to be there, too!
