We went to New Heights in Fayetteville where Josh is on staff. They meet at the Boys and Girls Club. We took a family picture in front of the climbing rock wall. I told Eli that it was appropriate since he was following the Rock! (Josh was getting ready for service so he was not able to join us. for the picture.)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
- Refrain:On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;All other ground is sinking sand,All other ground is sinking sand.
Love this Rich Mullin's song!
Josh shared a little about Eli. How he has been gifted with spiritual wisdom. How he willingly and joyfully puts others first, like Christ. Eli has been asking for some time to desire baptism. He understands what it is about. Even at his young age, I sense that God has something special for this boy!
Do you trust Him to forgive your sins? Yes.
Do you choose to follow Him the rest of your life? Yes.
Afterwards, we went out to celebrate!
Later that afternoon, we went home. But first, our family tradition - silly waves!

What a blessed weekend!
