Our Baptisim!


I wanted to apologize for not being on here a lot these days, it has been crazy!

2 Sunday's ago Michael and I got baptized! It was wonderful! We shared this moment with family members who are here in Texas with us, members and guests of the church at our church's annual picnic and baptisim! What a fabulous way to celebrate this awesome occasion!

We do wish that our family and friends from Virginia were here to share this momentous event with us but they were in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.

Michael went first and I followed, When asked when Michael accepted the lord into his heart and accepted him as his savior he got really shy and said he found him while attending church Sunday school, which they ended up saying VBS. But that is okay, he went in and Pastor Jeff baptized him and he just popped right up (the water was COLD!)

After Michael went it was my turn and when asked when I accepted Christ, I told them the story of when Michael was born, I wish I could tell the WHOLE story but I didnt want to hold the others up. :)

When I realized the wonders of our Lord, was through Michael, I always knew there was "God and Jesus" but I never really KNEW what wonderful things were though them.

Michael was born 1 month to the day early, and was very sick, he was diagnosed with Neutropenia. For those who dont know what that is, it is basically is a hematological disorder caused by low white blood cells. Without this he could get sick very easy and if cut or scraped would have a hard time to heal. Him being 1 month early didnt help this at all, it made it even more dangerous for him!
He stayed in the NICU for a while, slowly his white blood cells increased but not enough.
Finally get got it up just enough to be released from the NICU, we still had to take him to the doctors once a week, to have his blood checked, then every 2 weeks after that. They ended up doing a spinal on this little tiny baby of mine, the needle was longer then his whole body! I couldnt stand it and had to stand out in the hallway while his father stayed in with him to assist the doctors in holding him down.

We had talked with the doctor shortly after that and Michael had to get shots administer once a week, twice a week and then worked up to once a month.
They told us that this would most likely be something he would need to do his whole life. It was very upsetting to me!

Everyone prayed that our baby would pull though and that God would help him. After taking him monthly to get his shots and have his blood checked for his white blood cell counts, one day the doctor goes back to check them and we wait patiently for him to come back not knowing if they had stayed the same, gone down, or gone up. He comes in puzzled look on his face. My heart dropped just waiting for bad news!

But what was said wasnt bad news at all! What he told us was he didnt know HOW but his cell count was normal! and most likely wouldnt need to come back!

Our Michael is strong, healthy young boy and he is 7 years old as of August 21st this year!

I am so thankful that our Lord is here and he does answer prayers and you just have to believe and accept him into your life. He is great! and his greatness surrounds us every day!

I am proud of Michael he memorizes bible verses and loves church! He doesnt love getting up in the mornings but once we get there he loves it and to see him enjoy church and worshiping together is awesome! He is eager to learn and pray and just love God!

So to my son I am very proud of you :) and I thank God each and every day that you are here and are such a joy in my life!
