Matthew was baptized today. It was beautiful for so many reasons. Pete said “It is rare that I get to baptize a friend as close as you.” That brought tears to my eyes. He then spoke some encouraging words to Matthew before lowering him into the water.
Matthew had been baptized multiple times in his childhood, but each time it was because of fear. Today was about hope and love.
It was incredibly special.
I bet you can guess what my 365 picture is going to be. I am going to have Matthew write the journaling for today.
Have you been baptized? What was your experience like?
