Emily Got Baptized!

Emily expressed an interest in getting baptized so the Assistant Pastor had a talk with her to make sure she was truly ready to be baptized.  He deemed her ready and so it was scheduled for June 16th.  Her cousin, Benjamin, was also to be baptized the same day.  My brother and his family were able to visit and see them get baptized.

I had the unique vantage point of watching the baptisms from the "sidelines" since I was in the back room to assist Emily in changing.

Benjamin was actually baptized first, but since this is my blog, I'm posting pictures of Emily first ☺

In the back room
Ben was still and somber like this the whole time and Emi was bouncing around!

When I got baptized, my mom embroidered my name and the date on a hankie which I used to cover my nose during the baptism.  I made one for Emily, also, but I added a tatted edge around the outside.

It is neat to see the side view of their baptism. The pictures sure show the difference in their personalities too. So neat to know these two wanted to do what the Lord wants.

God's blessings to both Emily and Ben as they go forward in their walk with Jesus.
"And this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also - not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ"
1 Peter 3:21
Love the pictures. Thanks for sharing this special time with us.
