Big Day Today!

Today is a momunmental day for Garth and I today! I am so excited to announce that Garth is getting baptized today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me preface this by saying Garth was saved three years ago and his baptism was getting a tattoo of a cross on his left bicept. I find this very attractive. BUT he still needed the immersion of water as Jesus models. After much discussion and Bible studying he agreed! Thus why he is getting baptized tonight at our church. He is thrilled. I am thrilled. Our small group, family, and friends are all going to come which means so much to us. Some are even traveling over an hour to come see him! Then we're off to celebrate at Ruby Tuesdays!
I am so proud of Garth. He is an amazing leader: compassionate, loving, mature, faithful, nurturing, patient, and respected. I could not be prouder to be his wife. He truly is a man after God's heart. He gets me up every morning to pray together before we start our days, he encouraged us to join a small group, and he reads a chapter in our Bible every night to me before bed. I love him so much and I couldn't be more proud of him today! I love you Garth!!!

Congrats to your hubby! My hubby has been a Christian all his life, but he was baptized as a baby. He decided to do it again a few years ago to rededicate himself. It was so special!

That's great! I definitely think the idea behind baptism holds value and that's neat he decided to do it! I have a tattoo related to my salvation as well on my left inner wrist. It says Jehovah Rapha, which translates to mean "The God that Heals Me..." I LOVE it!
