Making God Laugh

On Palm Sunday of 2004, we baptized our Madeline Mae:

That's Dan and me (looking a whole lot younger) and my Grandma who passed away earlier this year.

In September of 2006, we baptized our beloved Davis Daniel:

Baby Davis with his Aunt LeeAnne and Uncle Kevin

And life was happy and good. We had one precious girl and one darling boy – everything we’d ever wanted. Our plates were full, our days were jam packed and our baby days were over.

So who could have imagined that five years later, on November 27, 2011...

We’d be baptizing our two little Ugandans:

AND our Baby Charlotte:

No longer at our fancy mega-church with the beautiful stained glass windows...but at our little church plant that meets in an elementary school cafeteria.

God has such a sense of humor. And surely, He had to have gotten a chuckle out of this blessed day:

After all, if you want to make God laugh, just tell Him all about your plans for your life.

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps." -- Proverbs 16:9
