so saturday was a fantastical day! it was one of those days that i wish could have gone on forever. i was baptized...and it was beautiful. i was surrounded by people who love me, encourage me, believe me and accept me for who i am. they are people who are walking with me in this journey of living. and i love them so much.
amy said something yesterday that has really resonated with me. we are not just baptized into the community of saints, but we are baptized into the community of the trinity. i've never really thought of the trinity as a community because we have always heard how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one. and they are...but they are also three seperate parts of one.
It just goes to show that God created us for community becaues He, himself, is in community.
oh and darrell was really really encouraging when he spoke about how baptism washes away not only the sin but the pain associated with the sin. so so true. it is all gone, God leaves no by products. he also spoke on how Jesus was baptized before he began his ministry and he thought it was wonderful that i was getting baptized before i started my ministry in mozambique. how beautiful, huh.
God is good.
oh and them my most favorite passage in Hosea was read chapter 2 verses 14-20.
"He will allure her..."
what a beautiful day. thank you so much Abba.
