Chace's Baptism at the Creek

Hey everybody! I wanted to share some very special pictures today! First of all today was a BEAUTIFUL day here in Texas! A Great day for a Baptism! Although it was in the 60's today, the water was about 45*! :) But my little man said he didn't care...he wanted to be baptized in the creek!
We bought 42 acres about 3 yrs ago, so we could build a new house on it and a creek runs right through it. We have already cleared alot of trees and started digging a catfish pond, making a new driveway, and putting the dirt on our new home site. But through the 3 yrs of owning it, we have spent lots of time out there, camping, swimming, hunting, and dreaming of living out there in our new home! Chace LOVES it out there, so we knew that he would want to be baptized there too. The place where Chance baptized him, is the same place we would swim on HOT Texas Summer days (before the last Hurricane knocked the rope swing tree in the creek, but that will be out of there soon, so we can swim out there again this Summer!) :)
So here is a glimpse of our Amazing day today!

The shirt says it ALL!
This pic is so sweet! Daddy had to preach before he got in the cold water! :)Here they are on their way to the COLD water! :)
I really LOVE this picture! It really shows the Love Chance has for his son and his passion for Christ! Here he is getting Baptized in Jesus name! And lets just say...they were out of there QUICK! :)Here is my Mom and a family friend there to watch.More family and friends there to rejoice with us! Thank you all for the sweet comments and support for my sweet little man's decision in Christ! We are so proud and happy for him! Jesus is SO good! :)

Have a Blessed night!
