On Mother's Day Maggie was baptized at our church. It was such a special day for our family.
We love our church and it means so much to me that David and I were married in the same church 3 of my children were baptized in and 1 child's memorial service took place. Richie Sessions, Senior Pastor, has baptized our children and also preached Forrest's memorial service. The Lord has truly blessed this man with the words from Him and a loving, caring spirit. He has loved our family through the good, bad, and ugly and we love that he has been a special part of all of our childrens lives.
The baptism gown is over 100 years old. It was made by my great great grandmother for her grandson's baptism (my grandfather). He wore it along with my mom, my brothers and I, and now my 3 children. It is in perfect condition and just gorgeous. I bought the bonnet for my sweet girl...love the bonnet!
Maggie did perfect during the service. She was tired but you wouldn't even know it. She was laid back and happy in David's arms and then Richies. After the baptism she fell asleep in my arms and stayed asleep through Richie's entire sermon.
The boys were good as well. I was worried Austin was going to pull my dress up because he kept walking around me and grabbing at it but thankfully it stayed down. \
Miller took part in all the different parts of the service. This was during the singing of a hymn. He opened the hymnal just like daddy and started to sing.
The beautiful flowers were given by my Senior High Small Group girls in honor of Maggie and in memory of Forrest. It was a beautiful arrangement! I am so thankful for them.
My precious family!
So thankful for our grandparents.
Love my sweet girl!
