Alex's Baptism

The moment I've been waiting for...to have one of those mother-daughter moments where she is asking my advice, my opinion about a serious topic. Tonight she came to me with a question from a book her Dana gave her, a "What would you do?" question about a moral situation.

She's growing up so quickly...into a young lady. Sunday she made a huge step in her walk with the Lord. Her Papa, the Reverend missionary, baptized her at our church. Many years ago, her Papa baptized his son, her daddy, in a muddy river in Burkina Faso, West Africa. And not quite as many years ago, he baptized me in the church I attended with my then fiance.
Her baptism was an especially poignant moment.

Awwwww! What a wonderful moment! And even more so since it's her Papa that baptized her. *sniff*
