Twins Baptism

Left to right: Sydney holding Marshall, me, Nate and Victoria holding Lily. Those were the sponsors. Marshall’s other sponsor was unable to attend.

Yesterday the twins were baptized. The silly officiant (grandmother) in her haste to move the ceremony along said Marshall Anthony as Anthony Marshall the second time she dipped in the water. They were darlings during the ceremony and that was a big thing. Not a peep from either of them as I handled them and got near the baptismal fount. I am not sure if it was because they just knew something was different in their fancy clothes or if they were familiar with grandmother. Perhaps neither, those two have minds of their own.

We also found a bit of time at the end of the morning’s festivities to gather up the grandchildren and grab a picture on the couch in the fellowship room of the church in Jamestown. It is such a beautiful room and has been kept up very well. I remember when the whole big carpet remodeling project was completed then the women purchased the new couches and chairs and I wonder if some were not perhaps just recovered at the time. I should have taken a picture of those chairs so comfortable for meetings. So, this is it for now, we are off to another week of school.

    What a special day, and how lucky you are to be such a central figure. God knows the twins names already, and HE knows that humans often “goof up”. Don’t worry, HE still LOVES them, and you too.
    How lucky you are to have those wonderful photo’s too. My youngest granddaughter was baptized the week before, and it was a wonderful day to celebrate! Congratulations!
