On April 2, 2017, Sadie was baptized at Kingsville Baptist Church by her very own Uncle Jason!! Jason called her his niece, and now his sister, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the church. Afterwards, we celebrated her baptism with a party at her house.. and this was one of the gifts she got!! How perfect is this?!
Jen had cooked a feast, including caaaake balls.
Kim did a great job slicing up the lemons and limes..
...to go in Grammie's perfect lemonade!!
Before we ate, the boys played some ball..
..and everyone fought to hold Baby Adam!! ;)
Sadie with Uncle Jason!! How sweet!!
When there are lots of people to celebrate with, it can be hard to remember who all was there. So here are a few pictures of those who came to celebrate Sadie's decision to be obedient to Christ through baptism:
We first sang the doxology together..
..and then prayed over Sadie!!
Loveeee thisss so muchhhh.
And then it was time to eat!!
The weather was windy and cool as we watched a big storm arrive.. our favorite kind of weather. :)
What an awesome day it was, celebrating this glorious event in Sadie's life. Our hearts were filled with joy as we watched the beginning of her walk with the Lord!! It is a beautiful answer to so many prayers.
And these two pictures don't really fit here, but the next day, Wade made roast beef poboys. They were sloppy. They were messy. They were perfect.
Granny Lou would have been so proud.
Sadie, we are praying for you to always obey Jesus, to do with all your might all the things He has planned for you!! It's a precious journey and one that's made sweeter the longer you walk with Him. Praying His blessings and guidance over you until you meet our sweet Savior face to face. We love you!! Happy Baptism Celebration Day!!
