Welcome to the Body of Christ, Thomas Kemp!
My sweet boy, my heart, may your baptism be the beginning of a beautiful journey of faith. A glorious hope was written on your heart today; the mystery of Christ, a precious gift and a mark of faith was bestowed upon you. As you grow, I pray you’ll catch glimpses of God’s love, His understanding, His wisdom, and God’s unwavering faith in you and in all that you have to offer the world. I pray, too, that I can be the kind of mother who not only brings you to church and raises you up in the faith, but someone who brings you to Christ by being more like Christ. When you gaze into my eyes, may you see something of Jesus in me. When I speak, may you hear the tone of His voice. When I give you all my love, may you know that God loved you first.
I love you, Thomas. It was wonderful to witness you join God’s big, happy family.
