Well, what a Sunday.
I was Baptized Sunday morning...the WATER....a bit warm (hot)..but what a blessing.!!
Sunday evening another lady at our church was baptized. She got saved on Thursday
night. Wow...I am just amazed at the way the Lord is just convicting and blessing.
wooohoooooo! I will tell you it is so good to KNOW that I am saved. PEACE

Way to go! Congratulations on your baptism. Adult baptisms are so much fun to attend.

Thank you for stopping by.
I wnet back and read your post on Salvation--AMEN! Welcome to the family!
This is something that is very close to my pastors heart. The fact that there are many people sitting in our church that think they are saved-know it is not working--but they are not saved.
I am so glad that your eyes were opened. May God use you as a testimony to others in the same boat you were in.

I tried to comment earlier but of course blogger was acting up and it wouldn't let me. I'm so excited you got baptized and that another one was baptized as well. Sounds like God is moving in your church. What a blessing!! Love you!!

Baptisms are so sweet, aren't they? I was saved when I was 8 years old, and got baptized shortly after. But I agree wth karolee--there's just something about adult baptisms that touches me every time. :)

Congratulations on your baptism! It's an exciting time :) I agree with the other comments about adult baptisms being so touching - I get all choked up, as well as encouraged by what is shared about changed hearts & lives.

Have a blessed Wednesday!

What church are you attending? (Curious...)

How did I miss this? I must say first yeah!

Thank you for the link. As Christians we must be first to stop the overspending and be good stewards.

Deby, I was torn between receiving awards and not, and if you read the link as to why I am going to continue. At first I was going to stop participating, but years ago my mom gave me good advice that I forgot for a bit. Sometimes the person giving needs that in their spiritual growth.Same with receiving. It is all too easy to be strong and give everyone else something, but to humble oneself and just say thank you is hard.

Almost as if one is implying that one is too good. We are in this together as Christians. We are to uplift eachother and fellowship with one another.By using an award to uplift another is wonderful. I am living testimony of this. Susan gave me the methetes award and wow. She had no idea that I have been feeling overwhelmed. I do lean on Jesus, but to be picked up by another Christian, made me as a person so uplifted. It was wonderful that others see my struggles and my strengths.

BTW I must thank you because coming here and having you visit my blog has been so uplifting ...thank you!

Have a blessed day and pray about this. I understand both thoughts and will always come here for my daily dose of apples of gold!
