Shine your light, baby!!!

"As a man must be born before he can begin to lead his physical life, so he must be born to lead a Divine Life. That birth occurs in the Sacrament of Baptism. To survive, he must be nourished by Divine Life; that is done in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist."
~Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Baby "Yoda " was transformed from an inherited darkened soul to a beautiful, spotless, radiant soul just a couple weeks ago in the sacrament of Baptism.  It was a blessed night of grace and love surrounded by our family and friends!

"...Bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."
~Ephesians 6:4

 "You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul...  And you shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up."
~Deuteronomy 11:18-19

 Yoda's Godparents are our oldest son, Fone, and my older sister!  How blessed he is to have their love, example and prayers throughout his life!!

After the Baptism, we gathered in the hall for dinner and cake to celebrate Yoda as the newest Catholic!!  Dinner was super simple - sandwiches made by my beautiful girls, cake from Sams, and everyone else brought something to share for the meal.  (We have such a sweet family that always offers to bring stuff!!)

++Thank you, God, for yet another beautiful child that you have entrusted to us during this temporary life to love, care for, and teach him to know, love, and serve You!++
