brayden’s doing as asked….

These are moments that are more precious than life its self….

These are moments I want to relive and cannot….

These are moments that make me teary….

These are moments I want to etch way down into my soul….

These are moments….

Brayden got baptized Sunday. Brayden has been wanting to do this for a while now and the Lord made a way right here on his birthday week. Brayden had to say a little something about why he was doing this. He said he wanted to do what the Lord asked of him.

 Pastor Steve did the honors and it was a moment for Brayden. There is nothing like the feeling of coming out of the water KNOWING you did as Jesus asked. I’m so grateful for Brayden’s heart and thankful for Jesus saving him.

  Our family was there with my mom and dad, Brayden’s best friend Christian and his family, and many witnesses from church. Pastor Steve prayed a blessing over him and then he came out of the water and we all gathered and laid hands on him and prayed over him.

What a day, we came home and celebrated this day with Brayden’s best buds and families. I made lots of food and we enjoyed the rest of the day together!

Thank you Lord for giving me this MOMENT!

Headed into the water! Doesn’t he look like a real man here?

There he goes!

Praise the Lord!

Meme - No greater thrill than to be a witness to a child declaring their salvation of a personal decision to follow Jesus, I can’t express how blessed and thankful we were to have the opportunity to be a part of this most special event we could share with your family. Thanks be to the Lord for Brayden’s testimony & thank you for sharing it with us! It was the perfect ending to a perfectly wonderful week end!
