I have said that I wanted to raise my children in the church and give them the same opportunities that I had but I haven't yet. On Sunday May 22nd, 2011 both Paisley and Ryder were baptised at Countryside United Methodist Church.
The kids were given a Dutch Cradle Cross during the baptism that had this little message inside:
The Dutch Cradle Cross
Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 19:14
With all their hearts, the Dutch believed in this passage from Holy Scripture and for centuries placed cradle crosses over the beds of their infant children - that this symbol of the Christian faith might early become a part of the child's consciousness.
The Old Testament reminds us, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." -Proverbs 22:06
--What a good reminder!
Thank you Mom, Bob and Ms. Ronda for being there to support the kids on their special morning!
