On this side of Heaven

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of Heaven."
Matthew 19:14
During Vacation Bible School in June, our oldest little monkey gave her heart to Jesus. Today, Miss Campbell was baptised and, of course, we were there.

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."

John 3:5

There will be other great days in your life ~ high school & college graduations, 1st job and marrying your sweetheart plus many others in between, I'm sure; but the day you were saved and then baptised are the greatest days of your life this side of Heaven. Nothing could make your Mommy, Daddy, and Mimi & Granddaddy more proud of you than we are today.

"Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth." Luke 15:10

There was also much rejoicing on earth today for this one little child who has chosen to follow the God from whom all blessings flow.

Just so you'll know when you're Mimi's age . . . the special guest speaker in church today was John (Bull) Bramlett and the special guests in the 11:00 service were the CNC Eagles. You & Cybil got to meet all of Daddy's old college coaches.

And . . . Happy Birthday today to my favorite "little" brother.

We love you Big Unc!!
