28 Days of Love: Day 21

Today there was a baptism ceremony for three members of the church that Sue and I attend.

It is rather unusual as the church we attend is at a movie theatre so there isn't a permanent place to have a ceremony. 

The baptism ceremony was at an apartment complex that had an outdoor hot tub. 

There was some light snow falling during the baptism and it was kind of a neat experience with it being outside in the snow.

Sue's friend, Juli and her brother Jesse were baptized today after church. 

Two hours after they were baptized their sister Justine(21 years old) passed away after being in the hospital for almost two weeks.

While it is sad to think of them losing their sister on a day when they committed themselves to Jesus, it is also neat that they made that choice on the day that Justine entered into eternal life.

The message at church today was don't just go to church, but to be the church.   I hope that our church will take that message to heart and rally around Juli and her family.

We are reminded that every day with our children and family is a gift.

Be sure and tell the people you love that you love them. Don't wait till tomorrow.

Light and Love x 21 x forever...
