Margaret’s Baptism Day

Sunday, January 12, 2014

What a blessing this day was!  Margaret Elaine, today we received you into the Household of God!  We made many important promises today, and we intend to keep them, with God’s help and the help of so many others that love you so much!  You were such a good girl during the service.  We were the last of five families to present a baby for baptism, and you were asleep the entire time.  When it was your turn for Susan to baptize you, she soaked you with each splash, and you woke right up with a cry!  Sweetest little sound!  Alleluia!imageAfter a wonderful service at church, we hosted family and friends for a luncheon in Margaret’s honor.  So thankful for each and everyone of them!imageI used our wedding cake topper beside her baptism cake.  It’ll be so fun to see it on her wedding cake one day a LONG TIME from now! :)imageShe wore our family Baptismal gown.  Third generation and twenty something baby to wear it-including me and the boys, Linds and her kids, and mom.  Made, with love, by great grandma Woudenburg.  So special!  imageMargaret, we can’t wait for you to realize how important these people will be in your life!  You’re so loved, sweet girl!imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageThe godparents-Uncle Eddie and Aunt Clark.  SO thankful for the example these two will be for Margaret!imageWith our godchildren-love that sweet Thomas!imageMargaret, today you were sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ’s own forever!

“There is one Body and one Spirit.  There is one hope in God’s call to us.  One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism.  One God and Father of all.”image
