Tonight at church I am getting baptized and then turning and baptizing my future sister in law Kerstin. I know that some people will disagree with this decision but I believe this is a personal decision. I made my own choice to my Jesus the King and Lord of my life a little more then 10 years ago on the couch of a friends’ house that she was renting. I was a student at University of Cincinnati. I will never forget that night, I had such a blast with the people I was with and felt that they accepted me and loved me almost instantly. I knew that I wanted to be like them and that is when my life changed. I especially thank my cousin for Melissa for having the courage to ask me if I have an Uncle Herb because with out that things would have been different for both of us. God was right there in that moment changing both of our lives.
So tonight as I am bawling my eyes out because I don’t ever make it through baptisms at church with out crying, I will be wearing my University of Cincinnati t-shirt and shorts. It is the where my life changed, forever. Not to mention I met this really nice hot guy who is now my husband there too (I love you honey).
So tonight at church I will proclaim to the rest of my church family that I love Jesus.
How about you? Have you been baptized?
