Finally, the day has come, we could present Levi before our loving and gracious God to be baptised. A covenant child of His, whom we praise every day for blessing us with our beautiful son, for making all things well during those first few months (and still now) and for giving Levi to us to bring up in fear of Him, to daily sing of His goodness and mercy towards us.
The Rev presented a beautiful sermon on Psalm 139 entitled:
'As children of God we are always safe in the care of our heavenly father'
1- God cares for us in all our circumstances (vs 1-12)
2- God made plans for our lives...already before we existed (vs 13-16)
3- God's goodness and care requires a response (vs 17-24)
What more can we say? Our sentiments exactly :)
The following video was taken by my darling mother in law who very discreetly took some film for us so we could share this with our loved ones who couldn't be there- love you all xoxoxo
On Monday morning I was called out of bed to a knock at the door- who could be visiting at 9am i ask myself, probably the post man and he's seen me in my pj's a number of times so today will be no different... I tentatively open the door, Levi in my arms, just enough for the post man not to see the full extent of my pink, silky, milk stained pj's and low and behold Mandy jumps out infront of us! Levi is so used to his extremely quiet mother :) that he didn't bat an eyelid, granted my screams were a tad less loud than usuall for his sake! So, what an awesome suprise! Thanks 'aunty' Mandy for coming to visit us and for smothering us with love! Can't beat french toast, cinnamon apples and tea made for you in bed- thanks babe!!!
