Children are gifts from God and the greatest gift parents can give their children is dedication back to God through Baptism. Yesterday we had the pleasure of witnessing the baptism of our youngest grandchild, Macy Quinn.
Macy was all dolled up for her special day.
Big sister, Lauren, and big brother, Chandler, took a few minutes before the ceremony to catch up on whatever it is that little kids chatter about. Chandler told Lauren, "you look beautiful today". Lauren replied, "I have a owie on my knee!"
Macy accepted her gift of baptism without a peep.
Pastor Ryan at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church was absolutely wonderful. He reminded all of us about the importance of spiritual gifts and included all of the siblings in the service. Ethan was given the Baptism Candle and told to help Macy remember her spiritual birthday. Lauren was handed the Baptism Certificate and was told to keep it in a safe place for her little sister. Chandler was put in charge of the precious Baptism Medal for safekeeping. They all beamed with pride to be included.

Oh what a special, wonderful day!
