Blue Monday and a Special Day

Smiling Sally
It's time again for Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's, go by and check out all the other pretty blues by clicking here
I'm late again, it seems like I am always busy and can't find time to get on here and blog and visit my friends..I miss you all when I don't get to stop by.
Yesterday was a very Special Day in the life of my Marrisa.
Let me start at the beginning, My family is Baptist, as is my DH's. When middle son, met his wife She was born and raised a Catholic, but neither one was totally devout in either one, so when Marissa was born they knew they would have to make a choice and visited around to different Churches, but when they went to St. Jude's in Pearl, they knew they had found their home. Middle Boy converted and had his first communion 4 yrs ago and yesterday our Sweet Baby Girl was Baptized and celebrated her first Communion..we were so proud of her. Our whole family, older son, his wife and 2 kids, Baby Boy and his wife and DH and I went to Richland to celebrate with her. Her Granny from TN even came down. She choose a private Baptising with just her family, It was a beautiful Service and we remained for her First Communion. Then all went out to eat lunch..Her God-Parents and their 2 Grands went with us so all in all there was 17 in the group.

 The whole Smith Family +  DIL's Mom is the lady in the tan shirt...The Prist laughing said, he'd never preached to so many Baptist at one time in his life...

  1. Hi Molly,

    I'm a Baptist too, and I can appreciate what a wonderful family time you experienced as some of my husband's family is Catholic.

    Happy Blue Monday.

  2. There's no boundary, no rim, where a Child's Faith is concerned---we're all just Family.

    Your sweet girl has never looked more beautiful or radiant. And you're beaming quite a bit, yourself. What a joyful day!

  3. Marissa is so beautiful, Molly, and I know your heart was just overflowing with love and pride. How wonderful that the whole family could share in that memorable celebration with her.
