Everything was beautiful, amazing, awe-some!  My dh, who originally came in reluctantly was more at peace than I ever would've imagined.  To sum up what was the best day of our lives:  At dinner, I was given the "honor" plate.  It's a tradition in our family to give it to someone for a special action or a "just because".  I asked why I was given the honor plate and dh replied with tears in his eyes, "Because you heard the call of God and you followed Him."  I am humbled.  Glory to God for all things!

Desiring_Unity, thank you for that brief but touching and beautiful account of you and your family's baptism day.  May the Lord grant you many years. Smiley

I was there!  It was absolutely beautiful.  Each of the five people in DU's family shone that day, each in a different way.   Glory to God for all things!
