Happy Baptismal Day...

... to our dear Goddaughter! 

I find it so hard to believe that you are already six years old and celebrating the sixth anniversary of your baptism today...  Where has the time gone?!? 

Loving God, Creator of all good things,
Thank you for the gift of life given to our godchild.
What a privilege it was for us to stand as witnesses for the Church
when our godchild was washed in baptismal waters.
Lord, help us to be faithful to you all the days of our lives.

As our godchild grows in age and faith,
enable us to be a good example for her
of how to live as a follower of Jesus.
Through our love and concern, in moments of joy and sorrow,
allow us to reveal your loving face, O God.
We pray this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

**It's also hard to believe that the little baby girl in my tummy is now almost 6 years old as well AND recently discovered her first loose tooth. Time is going by TOO fast!!


  1. It's awesome that you celebrate a baptism anniversary! Wonderful!

  2. You look cute pregnant!. That's a great picture!

  3. Yeah... I agree with Teresa... you look really pretty and happy :)
    My special prayers for y'all. The baby pics of your scan are just marvelous. God really works wonders in us for sure. Take care and stay happy.
    Loads of Love.. Mary :)

  4. Thank you! I WAS pretty happy!! At this particular baptism, I had *just* been released from MONTHS of bed rest and was so excited not to have to miss another special event! (I had just missed two of my best friends weddings...) I ended up surprising the doctors though and carried Twinkle Toes nearly to term (she was only 10 days early), despite all the pre-term labor. =)
