Things have certainly been busy this first month of Elliot's life. He has been such a little blessing to our family. We are so happy to finally have him to hold and love on! Ethan is such a wonderful Big brother. It's sad that I now look at him as my big boy, but forever I will have two babies. Elliot is making so much progress and reminds me not to blink too long on a daily basis for this precious time with my toddler and infant is fleeting. Enjoying the moment is how I would describe life lately. God has been so good to our family and continues to prove himself time and again. What a privilege it is to be a child of God!
Today, we had the first baptism service since our arrival in November. McKayla Curry has been riding our van route and after being saved has been asking to be baptized for almost two months. After ironing out the details with her family, and rescheduling twice because of family emergencies she was finally baptized this morning and what a glorious service it was. Besides the fact that the water heater was not turned on (due to our not knowing we had a hot water heater), this will be a day that we (and she) will remember. *Note to self: wouldn't it be nice if churches had a manual for the new pastor with information where stuff like that is locates? LOL The Lord brought in five visitors from McKayla's family this morning for her baptism. And were also excited about some of our van parents attending with their children this morning!
The verse I Peter 5:7 keeps ringing in my mind, "Casting all your cares upon Him for He careth for you." Amen!
