Teague's baptism

Easter Sunday was even more special this year due to Teague's baptism.   I found the letter that we had received from our pastor at Teague's baby dedication back in 2009 that was sealed and only to be opened once Teague made this commitment so that was neat to read to Teague and explain to him that many people had been praying for him for many years all hoping today would come!

My mom and dad and aunt all came into town and our nieces were already here for the Easter holiday and Teague's dad and wife also came, so Teague had quite a cheering section.  As Richard baptized him, he shared that he was honored to have baptized all five kids.  There is something so sweet when the last child comes to know the Lord!!  I know that has been our prayer for so long and now we can shift those prayers to growing deeper with Him daily.  

As I prayed from Teague and what the Lord had for Him I saw a concrete slab that was being covered with sealant.  I know that all the years of prayer and activities we have pursued have all led up to this point and have given Teague a solid foundation in the Lord.  His baptism was the sealing of all of it and will serve him well as he grows and matures.  I also received Isaiah 33:6 as his life verse.
"He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure."

After the service we headed to Roy and Lynette's for lunch and fishing.

We had a great day celebrating Teague, family and a Risen Savior!
