Quiet Time

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.
