He is Amazing




He's 8...and he's made that decision to be baptized. He prepared and prayed...he interviewed and considered...and as of yesterday, he's done it. It was a beautiful day. 

He's always been an amazing kid to me. Even when he was born he had this little face and these eyes that were full of intent. He's not aggressive or harsh. For the most part he's very mellow and easy-going. He has this kindness about him, too...he's forgiving and tender. I love these things about him.
His confirmation blessing was powerful...everything about 
yesterday was powerful.

I feel greatly blessed to have him in my life. I feel honored to be present and a deep responsibility to prepare him well for the things that will come.
Thank you, friends and family for your support in all things!

It is hard to believe that he is 8 already! I wish that we could have been there. Congrats Justus! That was a very important decision, one that you will remember forever.

Congratulations, to both of you. I am sad we couldn't be there. I was thinking of you both, and I'm really glad it went well.
love you.

It was amazing! He is getting so big! Emery to! If Emery is 4 then she was just born when we moved here.
