Well as all of you can see I am a day behind but I still wanted to say what I am thankful for.
This has been a grand week for our family. Our two oldest daughters got baptized on Wednesday night. I think about what this week represents for Christians and I think God could not have planned their baptism at a better time. I also learned from my girls that this was the time for them to be baptized and if they had not obeyed the prompting of the Holy Spirit they could have missed this wonderful experience. My oldest told me that she had that tugging in her heart but she didn't want to have to do this in front of people. Daddy talked to her and he said you need to keep praying this is your decision to make not Dad and Mom's. A few days later she came to me and told me mom it's not about me it's about Jesus so I need to do this. If we all could be so obedient when the Spirit prompts us.
The 9 year old knew right away she prayed and said she just knew that her heart was telling her to do this. I was so proud of both of them, Not for getting baptized but being still enough to listen to the Spirit of God and obey. I pray for both of them that will continue to be obedient in their walk and live in the full Glory of Jesus Christ.
The other thing I am thankful for is that the same man who led both of these girls to the Lord also was their to be with them as they washed their old away and their new beginning began that night. Who was that man you ask? It was their earthly Father who loves them dearly and is shepherding them along their path of life. Thank you God for blessing this family with a Godly man who puts you first in all areas.
And finally I am thankful for the debt that my saviour paid for me so I can live eternally with him in Heaven.
