BORN FOR MORE.







Today was the day, our pastor and his wife baptised their beautiful daughter, making this Palm Sunday extra special. 

David Schaeffer happened to be passing through town and shared a brief encouragement before our pastor's message this morning. David explained that we are each really two people. We are who we've become, and we are who we are 'becoming'. Who we have become can be somewhat boring to live within. We need to live out of the excitement of who we are becoming, to be fresh with excitement, to impact the world with positive footprints - you deserve to be excited!

David's words were a great reminder and inspiration for me to focus on. They also seemed to be a fitting prelude for this afternoon's baptism in our pool. I love the Tshirt E chose to wear - we truly are Born for More!

I always love witnessing someone being baptized. It is a joyful experience for all.

Love her T-shirt. Great saying for all of us.

What we are 'becoming' will be a wonderful thing to 'realize'.

I love Easter week. God gave His life for us in Jesus. WOW, that is so awesome, and all for LOVE.

Have a lovely Easter week ~ FlowerLady

Yes and Amen! Wonderful series of photos Karen!!! I do believe one must continually, and consciously refocus on good things ahead...it must certainly affect who we become :) xo

Wow! Jon & Lorraine really haven't changed at all... their hair is just "more distinguished".
I doubt they remember me at all, but please pass on my regards (if they remember me, it would be as Liz Denehy from way back in 88-89)
