Eliza's Baptism

Eliza was baptized at our church a few weeks ago. It was the perfect Spring day with a perfect combination of family, faith and feast. Spring and faith go hand in hand with me. The Bible says that faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. I am reminded of this as the green pops through the cold, brown earth and we watch expectantly for the flowers that will appear. Similarly, our faith in something other than ourselves in not easily seen or felt but is the anchor for our lives and our hope in things to come. Our desire is that sweet Eliza will choose to walk in this faith that Jesus gives us -- hope for a future and hope for life. Thanks to all who celebrate this with us!
