A Beautiful Baptism
Proverbs 10:19 says, “When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise.” I could say many, many words about these pictures, but I prefer to let them speak for themselves. This is the baptism of my 9 year old son. I can’t even express the joy at his confession of Jesus Christ as Lord. For those of you who know him, you understand why. And so y’all know, this is Luke baptising him. As if the baptism isn’t enough, the whole father/son dynamic slays me all over again.
Thank you so much, Deedra, for ministering to us through your gift of photography. I’m seriously considering staging a fake baptism for the other boys so I can have a collage. You’ve captured the most important day of our son’s life with pure innocence and perfection and I’ll forever be grateful!
Beautiful post. Those photos need no words.
Those pictures are beautiful! Especially the one of him gazing up at his dad! Oh what a moment!
What a beautiful time for all of you. My husband wasn't pastoring when my kids were baptized, so we missed out on that extra-special connection.
BTW – the choice of black and white for the pictures is stunning!I think really important moments should always be captured in b&w with color only as back-ups.
Absolutely beautiful. How did you even keep it together? I shout out a big Amen for your boy. May he have a strong, life long love relationship with our Lord, Jesus.
Well, I’m wide awake on a Saturday night/Sunday morning and just now seeing this!!!!!! Lisa, how in the world did you stand it?? I’m bawling. These are beautiful. Praising God for that precious little guy….I just want to hug him.
This truly was a beautiful thing! My husband had the privilege of baptizing our children, too (both at the same time), and it was one of the most precious days of our lives.
Blessings to you and your family… Jennifer
OK…I’m LOVIN’ that last pic. Oh my. How precious with his little wet arm reaching around Daddy’s waist.
UGH! That is precious!
