Yesterday we celebrated Meredith's baptism!
A precious angel from heaven above was welcomed into God's family with love.I wonder when in life you realize how much love is actually surrounding you? When you understand what true love is all about. Unconditional love. Love that comes from the deep core of your being and is expressed in many ways. If only Miss Meredith could really, truly grasp that deep love, because today, love was in abundance!
Little peanut came into my life in February 2011 when her Mom, Dad and Brother let me know she was on her way. 7 months of praying, watching the baby belly grow, and waiting in anticipation, Meredith joined us 'earth side' on September 7, and since provided so much joy into my life.
We celebrated afterwards with family and friends. Gathering to rejoice in the beautiful little gift God gave us, and the life that Meredith has ahead. It was fun, relaxing and full of love. At one point I looked around the kitchen and living room and every single person (including Meredith) had a smile on their faces. Whether it be the cake, or big brother JD's entertainment clearly everyone was happy to be involved in the day and celebrate the blessing of our sweet little peanut.
Meredith, I am blessed to have been part of your special day, and continually feel blessed as I continue to be part of your life. I look forward to watching you grow older, to walk with you as your personality shines, and to help guide you as you grow to be a confident, strong, passionate and secure young lady. As painted on the canvas, that will hopefully be hung on your wall and be a reminder of my promise to you: Meredith I promise to help you, lead you, encourage you, care for you, pray with you and most importantly to love you. You are a gift from God and blessing in my life. I love you so dearly! Welcome to God's family xo
