We Have a Home!

I have such wonderful news to share with all of you! Ryan and I have finally found our church home at Bayside Baptist! We have visited there for almost a year and recently felt God lead us to join. I have prayed for this day for so long. A couple of Sundays ago Ryan and I were eating lunch and discussing our small group topic. He admitted that he had been praying and finally felt like we needed to join! If you had told me this would be happening three years ago, I would have scoffed at the idea. It just goes to show you that God answers prayers in His own time. Looking back now, I can see how it was totally worth the wait and I wouldn't trade the road we have traveled together for anything. When you endure difficulties and have to wait for the things that are deep in your heart, you learn to appreciate them even more. I have never felt more blessed than to see my husband live the life that God wants for him. I am so very proud of him.

We were so blessed to join the church this morning while Ryan's children are both here for the summer. I believe it was something special we could all share in and celebrate today!

And that's not even the most exciting news I have to share with you all today....

My sweet husband and stepdaughter were baptized at the lake this evening!

Walking out to meet the pastor, Eric Stitts.

Madison got to be the first baptized.

She put her "God's Team" jersey on!

Coming out to meet us...

The group was then congratulated!

A very proud Nana, Pappy, and Caleb!
Ryan's mother has been waiting for this day for nearly thirty years!
Never stop praying!!!

We enjoyed seeing our friends from our small group this evening!

I am so blessed to see these two get baptized together! It's something they will both remember and cherish for years to come. Such a special thing to share!
