Today my mom was baptized. God truly works in ways beyond my understanding and I am reminded yet again how small my faith is in His power and belief that He hears our pleas. I really never thought this day would come.
And it is appropriate that she would be baptized today, Feb. 24, because it is also my father’s birthday. I did not imagine that anything good could come of his passing, but it was really his loss and then the loss of my mom’s best friend that started nudging her toward God. If you know my mom, I mean really know my mom, then you would appreciate how much of a miracle this really is. I am in awe.
Furthermore, two of her brothers and the entire family of her youngest brother attended church today to witness her baptism. This is the first time any of them have ever attended a Christian church service. I do wonder what they were thinking during the service.
