Today the angels rejoiced.... sharing our good news.

The angels in heaven rejoice over one sinner who repents...

And today, the angels again rejoiced, and then probably ate fried chicken to celebrate... the baptism of 2 beautiful young souls, my oldest two sons, Ethan and Christopher.

It's been a little over a year since these precious boys each made their respective decisions to be followers of Christ... and during that time, this mom watched and waited for an appropriate moment to schedule the baptism.  Because for me, it's not a decision for a moment, but a decision of, and for a lifetime.

And this morning, we talked again about how the actual baptism isn't the most important part ... it's simply the picture to the world of what God is doing on the inside.  

And today Ethan and Christopher declared to the world that Jesus is Lord of their lives. 

And a proud mom stood to the side with the camera as they received the blessing and the reminder that they are now, not only children of God, but sons of God.  

That they are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
