Anna was baptized today. The holy waters of baptism have marked her as God’s child, confirming her place in heaven and forgiving the sins that are innate within her. What a loving, gracious God we have who would send His Son to live a perfect life in an imperfect world and take our place on the cross to pay for our sins once and for all. It’s mind blowing. It’s completely unfathomable. It’s the most beautiful, completely undeserved gift one could ever hope for and it’s ours for the taking. I pray that this day begins a long life of faith for our little Anna Marie.

This baptism gown was made out of my mother’s wedding dress. Myself and my 3 sisters all wore it for our baptisms and now both Audrey and Anna have both worn it, as well. It’s a special family heirloom that we will treasure always.
