As part of the service, Josh (JD's dad) wrote him a letter that he read aloud after the baptism and Susie (his mom) took Psalm 139 and paraphrased it especially for JD. Chris also invited all the kids in the congregation to sit in the front row so they could see. I love doing that because I always remember that as a kid I could never see when a baby was baptized and I always felt like I was left out.
It was a very special service and we pray that God would bless JD and his family as he becomes part of the family of God.
As you can see, poor JD was in need of a nap and was tired of the whole picture thing a LONG time ago. :o)
