Reese's Baptism

Today was a very special day for our little lady, Reese. She was baptized. Ironically the sermon for the day was regarding abortion and the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. A rose was carried to the alter for each year that has passed since the passing of this law in rememberance of all the baby's lost as a result of an abortion. Sitting in the cry room with my ever so vocal chilld I couldn't keep myself from crying. It broke my heart to think about the lives lost, the little children who never got to see life, and for their mothers, who for whatever reason were not able to experience the miracle of childbirth and being a Mommy. Needlesss to say it was a very touching ceremony and perfectly timed. The remainder of the service I sat there and thought about how thankful I am that my life has become what it is. That I myself was never put into a predicament that would make me have to make a decision as to rather or not to continue on with a pregnancy. That I not only have two beautiful little girls who I would give anything for, but that I also have not a worry in my life. I have all that I need and more. I am so thankful that life has been so good to me! I am also thankful that although my childhood was not perfect, everything in it was there for a reason, and I can now not only continue my belief in Christ, but also share it with my children.

By the way, pics are to come... lets just say the little lady was NOT fond of the idea, let alone the water over her head, the oil rubbed on her, or the strange man touching her. Afterall, she  is the little girl who doesn't even like her OWN Daddy to hold her  =0(
