Yesterday ended with a big surprise. We decided to celebrate the anniversary of our wedding (Loretta and I were married 11 years ago in Las Vegas) by having a little party. It was just Loretta’s kids, the grandkids, and I. Margaritas and nachos, two of Loretta’s favorites were involved. After the grandkids were tucked into bed, our next door neighbor, Bobby Menke joined us while we were eating steaks we had just grilled.
The talked turn to spiritual things. Elaina told us about the other night when she opened her Bible to Jeremiah 6:16 which reads:
This is what the Lord says:
“Stop at the crossroads and look around.
Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls…
Bobby was talking about his spiritual journey and his desire for something more, and something more positive in his life. We were talking about baptism. About making a new start. Bobby made the decision to fully commit to following Jesus and to make a public declaration of his commitment through baptism. Then Elaina decided to be baptized.
Amazing! And wonderful. The video tells the story.
