Cailyn’s Baptism

I have taken a while to get these posted.  Not sure why, because Cailyn’s Baptism was so incredibly special to me.  On May 22, 2011 our sweet baby girl was Dedicated to Christ.  We promised to raise her as a Christian and have her know the Lord.  Although the ceremony lasts but a few moments the lesson will last a lifetime. 

Before I move onto the pictures I want to share with you our meeting with the pastor.  Our whole family met with the Associate Pastor, John Michael, the Tuesday before.  It was a short meeting but just giving us the 411 on the meaning of Baptism and how things would be done.  Well, halfway through Lawson decided to start listening and started asking questions.  “How can Jesus be in our heart since he is so big?”  “How can God be everywhere?” and there were a few more I just can’t remember.  It made me so proud and felt that even though I have thrown her to the wolves (per say) and she no longer attends a Christian School we are laying a  foundation for her at home and at Church.  Whew!

On to the Baptism…
