day 94- Easter Sunday

Happy Easter!

I know this picture may seem a little obtuse, but it has such meaning to me.

This is the only picture I have of the night Mat was baptized.

Long story short, Mat was a summer youth intern for a church in North Carolina during the summer of 2006. I just happened to be working as a camp counselor for the camp his church attended that summer. Mat was saved during summer 2006, and while at the beach for summer camp with the kids in his youth group (and our amazing friends, Kevin and Mandy Wilburn), he was baptized in the Gulf. (At this time, Mat and I were only friends-- we didn't even really talk except when we would randomly see each other somewhere. We started dating in December 2007.)

So, this is the only surviving picture I have of this night. And I think it is just beautiful.

And today, on Easter Sunday, as we celebrate the glorious resurrection of our Lord and Mighty Savior Jesus Christ, I pray and hope you will pause and reflect on what baptism means. I can also only pray that you have a relationship with Jesus, and that you are actively trusting in Him for your salvation.

And as always and especially today, may the great God of our Universe be glorified in and through your life. Happy Easter!
