Today Davenie Kael becomes God’s child in the water and Word of baptism. What a miracle it is to witness! God takes ordinary “stuff” as my Pastor / Dad likes to say and does something out of the ordinary. God writes His name on her heart. I’ve always loved the hymn “See This Wonder in the Making” by Carl Schalk. Do you know this baptismal hymn? It begins like this, “See this wonder in the making – God Himself this child is taking. Now God’s precious son or daughter, born again by Word and water.” What a grace-filled gift! Andy and I are honored to serve as Davenie’s baptismal sponsors. As we pray for our other godchildren – Brogan, Grace and Elinor – so will we pray for Davenie. Today and always, may you rejoice in your baptism!
