My Sweet Nephew
My little nephew was baptized yesterday. His baptism was somewhat unique in the fact that my mother-in-law had just returned from a trip to the holy land and brought back a bottle of water collected from the Jordan River. Little Henry got baptized with this water. Really cool!
Then, of course, there was a party and we wore him out. :-)
I created this picture as a gift for Henry. I found this poem and woodburned it on a plaque when his oldest brother was baptized and just love what it says. I created a something similar to this when his other older brother got baptized, as well, so I thought I should keep with tradition and make this for Henry.
