We are now in the full rush to continue life. This means getting our home on the real estate market, figuring out a contract for surgery, and finding a house in the Somerset, KY area. The biggest event, however, is Hannah's baptism today. Hannah has been asking for about a year to get baptized. Rebecca and I have struggled with the timing as we continue to hope for maturation in action and understanding. Eventually, we agreed to proceed. We have come to believe that at the beginning of our Christian lives, we are babies. It is alright to be a baby if that is what we are. With repentance and the gift of the Holy Spirit, we look forward to her growth, now as my sister. Today, we went ahead after the second service with her baptism. What a blessing that many friends were willing to share it with us. To add to the day, we were up until 0130 this morning turning our house into the desirable place for the open house this afternoon. Since we couldn't come home, we went to Chuck E Cheeses with friends after the baptism. Now some would question the rationale of baptism leading into Chuck E Cheeses, but then again, so would I. May God be praised in all the quirkiness of our lives.
