Yesterday was an important day in our family.
Our oldest grandson Isaak
was was baptized.
In our faith, we believe a child
should be 8 years old,
or the age of accountability
before making the decision of baptism.
Isaak was baptized by his father,
our Son-In-Law Dano.
A very special moment between father and son.
Baptism is a very sacred ordinance.
It is a 2-way promise, or Covenant with God
to show our commitment to Him.
We demonstrate we want to follow Jesus Christ,
to help each other,
and to try and remember the Savior in all we do.
We believe in baptism by immersion,
the same way Christ was baptized.
Immersion is symbolic of a
rebirth into a spiritual life.
We are proud of Isaak and his choice
to be baptized.
He is a wonderful young man
who is sensitive, kind, and a friend to all.
Many people came to see his baptism.
At the end of the service,
without any promptings from his parents,
Isaak went around the room
and shook hands with each person,
thanking each one personally for coming.
I watched him with amazement.
I am grateful for
our daughter Amy
and our SIL Dano
who are wonderful parents
in their devotion to their
