Come watch Bella grow up with us…

Bella got baptized today!

While it was a chilly day here in North Carolina, or hearts were warmed by watching our oldest daughter testify she had gotten saved by getting by baptized at Westport Baptist church in Denver NC. Bella was originally nervous at the idea of putting her head under water with the fully immersion of the baptism but when the time finally arrived and she had her robe on, she was all smiles and couldn’t wait to do it. I do not believe there was any fear or stress per nervousness in her sweet mind at all tonight. When I was helping her dry off and get her church clothes back on, she said she wished she could get baptized again. I was shocked so I asked her why. She said because it was so much fun.  Thank you Pastor Mike Young for helping to make this one of the most amazing days of her life. Our deacon Barry Still and his wife Janice gave Bella her first devotion book tonight too. She was thrilled and immediately had her Grandpa Lee read it with her when we got home.

Oh yeah….I forgot to mention that Papa and Nana Lee both traveled from Indianapolis to see their granddaughter get baptized. Uncle John of course was their to support her as well. What a great family she has!

Ella has really grown accustomed to her grandparents since this is the first time she has been old enough to do so. She picked up on the names Papa and Nana much easier than grandpa or grandma. For whatever reason she latched onto Papa stronger than Grandma just like Bella did when she was that age. Interesting.
