This Friday Nana (who was visiting from the Sunshine state) and I took a pink haired Dolly to get her ears pierced. Seemed like the perfect time to do it since another BIG event was to happen in her life. This piercing was to remind her of this.......

Isaiah 53:5
But He was PIERCED for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.

Dolly was baptized on Sunday. Daddy was in the water but Dolly asked "Mami" to baptize her. Since we have no family around, Mami and Dolly kinda adopted one another while Dolly was in the nursery.

I could not help but thing of Mami'a past year. The word cancer leaked into Dolly's vocabulary and came out in prayers and then celebration! Thank you God! We told Dolly as little as possible so that her hugs and behavior toward Mami would not change but be medicine to her. This celebration of one life became the celebration of 2 lives and a testimony of ministry even to a baby!
Look at that smile! There were 2 more of those smiles right behind her! She picked a favorite shirt to wear. My sister says this shirt is a direct reflection of Dolly's personality, I think she is right!

My Dear then baptized Dolly's buddy. Dolly immediately applauded when her friend went under the water! Precious stuff! Those little darlings were giddy with excitement! Dolly wanted everyone to be there! She wanted everyone to know! I think we adults could learn a thing or 2 from Dolly and her little friend.
Do you know what Dolly knows? Are you giddy about your salvation? If not, leave me an email address in the comments and it will be my pleasure to get in touch with you! Otherwise, get giddy!!!

Rejoicing with you! WOOHOO!

Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to slip off my shoes, be me, and drench myself in God's goodness.
