We have a baptism date!
« on: October 13, 2012, 11:10:30 PM »
My husband met with our priest and he gave us the blessing to be baptised on October 28th!  My whole family, three daughters included.  I'm pretty much at a loss for words.  My heart is singing!  Thank you all, for being here and answering my questions.  In the beginning, I was quite argumentative and the 'language' barrier was difficult, but Glory to God, He's much bigger than our vocabulary!   ;D
"Beloved in Christ, if you ever despair, wondering if what you do for God matters, remember: each single act of holiness is like a stone thrown into an ocean—the ripples go forth, and we do not know whom they touch or where they end."

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his han

great news!
stay calm, don't be afraid of the future.
remember Jesus our Lord and Saviour said in john 16:33
'in this world you will have trouble, but have courage, I have overcome the world'.

the enemy will continue to 'prowl around like a roaring lion', but remember you have Jesus with you in the boat
(matthew 8:23-27).
