Faith

Yesterday was a big day - all of our kids made profession of faith in church!! Indeed, it was so exciting, I struggled with the photography. They started out by telling about their faith and what it means to them. Bridget talked about her favorite song, "In Christ Alone", which she had asked the band to play. Edward talked about going away to Amsterdam and taking this step before he goes. Maria showed a video which she had made of her photography & painting and talked about how she sees God in the world:



Along with our church and family and grandparents from out of state, many friends showed up to offer their support. Here is Bridget with some of her friends:

I'm not going to lie, tears formed watching Maria's video. She obviously inherited her mother's keen eye for beauty. Congratulations to your entire family for the statement you make, not just on a special day like yesterday, but everyday. John and Julia you have been blessed!
