This is surreal.
It went through my mind each time I did something in preparation for Zachary's Baptism day.
Ordering his first quad-set with name lovingly engraved...
Emailing the program details...
Writing a little talk about the Gift of the Holy Ghost...
Shopping for a snazzy new church outfit (for him)...
The significance of the day was not lost on me.
It was simple and meaningful.
And most importantly, his choice.
(what I love most about being baptized at the age of 8)
While singing the opening hymn Baptism (again, his choice)
the most sweet spirit filled my heart.
There are few life experiences that actually, truly reach the designation of joyful,
this was one of them.
