This Sunday was filled with many, many wonderfully busy things. It was our annual church Round Up. The summer seems to scatter people and this is the day to bring them back and have a great day of fellowship. BUT the best part of the day was seeing Javon get baptized. And getting baptized by his dad made it even more special. He's been wanting to get baptized for about a year now, but we decided to have him wait a bit longer. At Easter he said he wanted to get baptized but we are sooooo busy on Easter that we decided to wait until a less busy Sunday. Being in ministry makes a few decisions based on "will we have time to really focus on you". Well, it didn't work out to have it on a "less busy" Sunday but it worked out anyways.
It was one of those days that I went home absolutely exhausted, but had a great day at the same time! These are the days that memories are made. Yes, every day has the opportunity to make a memory, but there are special times in life that can't be relived or redone. This was one of those days. Watching my whole family work together for Jesus to make this day happen and then seeing my son water baptized....yeah, these are the days that will live on in my memory. It's kind of like labor....it was a lot of work, but the result far outweighed in the end. That's kind of like homeschooling I suppose. It is defiantly a lot of planning and work but the results FAR outweigh the labor!!!
