Daughter is saved!

Daughter was baptized on Sunday.  God is great!  With the children who we had lost before birth (and therefore before they could be baptized) we wanted to do the baptism ASAP!  I wasn't up to going to church last week, so we set the baptism for 8/11.

Hymn 725 is Daughter's hymn.  They sang it for her :)

There was a pretty good turn out!  I didn't think that many people would be able to make it because it was so last minute.  We couldn't schedule the baptism until we knew when she would be born!  But Pastor was very helpful and agreed with us about Baptizing right away, so he (and his wife) made it pretty easy.  As Lutherans, we believe in Baptizing infants, and we didn't want to wait long!

And I'll leave you with an adorable picture of daughter practicing her karate moves.


  1. Wonderful! We are lutheran too. :)

    What hymn is 725?

  2. Yay! I love infant baptisms. What is Hymn 725? We rarely use hymns at the service we attend.

  3. Hymn 725 is "Children of the Heavenly Father" and we've been singing that to her every day since she developed her ears. :)

  4. Congratulations, and we are keeping baby and family in our prayers! Wonderful pictures! -Pastor
