There is a wonder in every way of God. We remember His work wrought in the water two years ago today.

It is Aelah’s baptism birthday today. Baptism is one of several, beautiful, God-ordained mysteries that has always tripped me up a bit. Mysteries are like that.

This beautiful, simple splashing of water and this speaking of God’s Word, and, miraculously…

God is there.

Father. Son. Spirit. –all there.

Adoption happens.

Forgiveness happens.

Death happens.

And then…inexplicably…life begins.

How does it work? I’ve no idea. Many questions remain…but I take it to heart when God tells us He is working in it…

So, we baptize.

So, we celebrate.

So, we share with our children the mystery, wonder, and blessing of God.
