After 6 weeks of small group classes and getting to learn so much, L and 85 other 6th grade and up students were Confirmed in the Faith at our church over the weekend.
This service was amazing. Laying hands, along with our family and Pastor, on my oldest baby as he affirmed that Christ was his Savior brought me to tears. And what ya’ll don’t know about me is, I am not a crier!
But this moment of intimacy was one I felt and will cherish in my heart and soul forever.
When we returned home after the service, L opened a Bible we had gotten him for this special day.
It has his name on it. And the excitement he had on his face receiving this gift given just for him. He said, “Wow, it has my name on it, in gold like the side of the pages!” Then he began looking up verses.
Be still my heart!
