Like most weekends this one was eventful.
We didn’t get much DIY completed.
Joe finished painting the front door.
I did a little touch up painting myself.
Then I spent Saturday evening helping my sisters and sister in law throw a nursing graduation party for a special lady.
Sunday we attended our church’s baptism service.
It was unlike any baptism service I have ever been too.
There were about thirty people to be baptized, and each person was baptized by their spiritual mentor.
And the whole service was held under a huge tent during our southern monsoon here in SC.
We have had so much rain. And it has just continued to fall.
But anyway cold rain or not, following Christ’s example 30 Christians, young and old, were dunked under the water and the symbolically raised to new life.
It was an incredibly moving 90 minutes.
I was going to insert some joke about skipping the baptism, converting to Presbyterian and just running around in the rain but I will spare you.:)
Then we came home to a nap-inducing lunch of roast pork, broccoli with cheese, and mashed potatoes.
After an encouraging life group on Sunday night, we had some Subway for dinner.
And as I type this on Sunday night, I have a chocolate cake in the oven.
Why a chocolate cake?
Because we have a QA audit this week at work and I am not above bribing an auditor with good cake.
