An Invisible Grace

We celebrated Sawyer's baptism a couple weekends ago and were blessed to have all of our family there to witness this visible sign of an invisible grace.


While helpless like a baby, it is my deepest belief that our creator loves us all beyond understanding, knows our need, and claims us as his own. It is our prayer that our boy will find his hope in Christ alone.

Sarah - this is one of the most beautiful baptism photos I have ever seen. It isn't about family, or about a crying baby...it is about that invisible grace, offered to a helpless and beautiful baby. And love. There is such love. It brought tears to my eyes!

It was so special to see this in person. Sweet little Sawyer is blessed to have great parents who will raise him to know the Lord. Love you guys!

beautiful post, Sarah.

I can't quite see my keyboard through the tears. It gives a parent such joy to see one's own children having the desire to have their children know the love of the living redeemer.

Oh Sarah - how beautiful. Tears, sniff. In Christ Alone is my most favorite hymn. God bless your sweet little munchkin and may he fall head-over-heels in love with Jesus.

awesome sarah. Were you in NY?
Sam and I loved the hymn...who was singing it?
Oh, and this post made me really miss you.

Sarah said...

No, we were in Chicago at our church, ResCov. The hymn is from Owl City, I think he just recorded it on his own and just put it on his blog. I miss you guys too...coming to Chicago anytime soon?
