My Son's Baptism

My heart leapt when Noah decided he wanted to be baptized. He decided he
wanted to live for Jesus when he was 7, but he has always been reticent to be baptized publically. This month Noah decided he wanted to stand up and tell everyone he was a follower of Jesus, so why not follow Jesus' example and be baptized. Our church does their summer baptisms at the Cherry Creek Reservoir. So we went there for the big event and then after, we had a lunch celebration at Noah's favorite restaurant.

My joy and pride were obvious!
My brother Phil and his wife Lory. Great friends and encouragers of Noah.

Hunter, Noah's cousin, is a terrific example for Noah.

John, Noah and me on a wonderful, blessed day!
