BAPTISM. Last Saturday, I went home for vacation to attend my mother's baptism. When I arrived home, I immediately settled myself in. Placing all of my belongs in their designated areas. Before I knew it, I was eating all of my favorite foods and sweets. At that point, I was glad to be home.Moreover, the following day I returned to the house of the Lord. Where my mother was prepared to be baptized by our Pastor. As I watched her enter the pool of water, I could see an intent glow as if God was there welcoming her into His kingdom. However, I could see as she smiles into the Pastor's eyes, her heart filled with fear. The moment the Pastor finished introducing the points of the ceremony, he smoothly but quickly dipped my mother in the water. Finalizing her commitment to accept the Lord as her savior. In the end, as she wipes the water off her face, I could see a sudden relief and weight lifted off her shoulder. Mostly importantly, a new life, a new woman, and a new daughter of God formed.
ps. my mother will be reading the comments on this post 0:) (hint hint).
