Today was Samuel's baptism. There are really no words I could write here that would adequately describe what today meant to me- us. The only thing that comes to mind is the verse from which his name came:
For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him. Samuel 1:27
We prayed so many prayers for Samuel and he is a blessing beyond words. Today was, among other things, a way of giving thanks to God. I pray that Samuel may know the love of Jesus all the days of his life.
