Today was an exciting day! When I first woke up this morning I was sure I wouldn't pack the kids up and take them to chuch by myself (as Wes had to sleep just coming off of night shift). I thought in my head "they are just doing a mass baptism, which is cool, but I won't get much out of it." Then, at about 10:15 I decided to mom said she would watch the little guys for me and Aidan and I headed to church. What an amazing service! Over 100 people were baptized over the 2 services. I didn't realize how emotional it was going to wonderful to see all those people announce that Jesus died so they could be forgiven!! Such a public declaration of was so awesome.

It made me reflect on the day I was baptized...June 26, 2005 at CrossRoads Church. On that day we had to give a testimony, and were baptized with the going down and up from the water, a cleansed soul. I knew on that day that was a big step I was I think about that day and would love to do it again....not to have more of my sins washed away but to just publicly declare that Jesus is King and Lord of Lords. I know so much more today about my faith then I did when I stepped into that water tank almost 4 years ago, and it has been such a wonderful progression in learning about our Lord. I knew so little back then, all I knew is that I wanted to follow Jesus..I wanted to be married to a man and raise a family with Jesus at the head. (Wes was also baptized on that day as well). That was a great place for us to start as a newly engaged couple...God has definitely had and will continue to have an everlasting place in our marriage and in our hearts!

I am so excited for every single person who came forward today to make such a public declaration! There are so many exciting times for you ahead with our Lord and Saviour!

Here are some photos from when I was baptized:
