Dylan's Baptism!

Last Sunday, a VERY excited Dylan was baptized!!!  He had been waiting to be baptized for a looooong time (since September 2012), and so, he was just delighted when the day finally arrived.  Daddy accompanied Dylan into the water, while a teary-eyed mama, and the rest of our family looked on from the side.  We didn't get many good pictures (these ones were taken on the church camera), as the heat from the pool kept fogging up my lens!

Dylan has such a great desire to follow the Lord, and obey what he reads in the Bible.  He is a very spiritually mature young boy and we were just delighted for him! 

Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, 
to be baptized of him.  But John forbad him, saying, 
I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now:
 for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
 Then he suffered him.  And Jesus, when he was baptized,
 went up straightway out of the water: and, lo,
 the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the
 Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, 
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 
~ Matthew 3:13-17
