No matter what religion you are or aren’t, we all have the same goals as parents. To help them prosper, hold them from harm and instill hope for their futures. Last week we baptized the baby and took a leap of faith for her future. I received a sweet card from a friend with a message inside, “How cool is it that the same God who created the mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you too.” In a world so complicated, I love being reminded of the simple lessons we teach our babies.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
