My precious daughter…

“For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism.  And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.”  Romans 6:4

There are moments in life when words cannot describe…

As a Mom, I’ve found myself praying about aspects of life in a passion never before known.

At times, I forget about these prayers.

At times, memories of these prayers come rushing back like a hurricane.

Emma and I had a precious conversation the other night in relation to an event that would take place today.  I asked her if she could recall the moment she asked Jesus into her heart.  She recalled.  Every detail.  We shared memories of that afternoon.  Daddy found a video recording of our celebration.

Such a snapshot of life in this season.

And now, in this season, in this moment.  She bravely took steps, this time down into a pool, to put her faith to action.  With words of grace and conviction, shared with me just days before, she placed her head and her heart in the spiritual hands of her Father, and the earthly hands of her pastor as she shared her public declaration of commitment in front of her church family and friends.  I will never forget…

Precious child, you are my hero.  Your tenderness to the prompting of the Spirit are such an example for your Daddy and I.  I am so thankful for the ways in which the Lord allows us to create our altars of remembrance, in this case, through blogging and media.  The legacy of generations to come is being written in the moments of today.  So today, I simply want to pause, and to share.  To God be the glory, now and forevermore.

   Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa,  aunts, uncles, and cousins who came to share in the celebration today.  May we continue to cheer as loudly in this arena as we do in the sports one.  Thank you to our Journey family whom the Lord has chosen to surround, support, and bless us with at this time.  What an honor and a privilege to do life together.  Have a great week in Him!
