It's 10:30 p.m. and I'm going to bed now. I am allowing myself 10 minutes to write this post, download a picture and jump between the covers (I'll go between tonight, because it's cool and I've been outside for the past 2 hours!). Today began at 10:30 a.m. and I popped back to the house for 45 minutes this afternoon before disappearing again into the evening. So, although the day was full of goodness I want to share (in my brief self-allotted time) how my day ended.
It ended with a beautiful, clear, night sky full of stars, a creek, about 20 dear saints and 1 precious, obedient lover of Christ. There was testimony, a splash, praise and rejoicing, and singing. There were prayers, tears, hugs and more singing. Oh yes, and flashlights. Because this sweet soul decided to be obedient at 9:00 p.m.!
poem written for my brother, sister in law, and nephew
for their baptism January 30, 2011
What a marvelous day is this
As your decision leads you into the water
As you heed the call of Jesus, now!
What a marvelous path before you
As you walk the path lit by His light
Abandoning your way to His
What a joyous uproar
Resounds in Heaven
As the angels bear witness
And we alongside the waters
(We who know)
Rejoice in His goodness!
