Choirs of Angels were Singing

Especially one I know very well, my dear mother-in-law.......

Here's why.....
My brother-in-law, who has been inactive for over 30 years,
Was rebaptized this afternoon.
Many, many, many prayers have been offered for him.
Both on this earth and I know on the other side.

That's why I know his mother is rejoicing at this time.
My husband baptized him.
And his dad was able to confirm him.

Now I'm going to share the photos of this very special occasion,
for my dear sister-in-law
who is on the other side of the world
serving a mission.
So if you're not interested in seeing, you can move on now.....
Room filled to capacity.
Happy family
Happy kids
Happy grandkids
A great birthday present for a daughter!
Buddies for over 40 years.
Doing what we do best--gathering and eating.
Not sure I claim this kid.
Something is super funny.
Hanging with the cousins..

A day of rejoicing in the heavens and on earth.......

This was truly an amazing day. Uncle Mike is a completely new person! The Spirit was so strong in that room. Mike's good example is truly inspiring to me and all of us.
The best part, aside from watching Mike take this important and wonderful step, was knowing that Grandma was there. I love our family!!

Okay, so here is another connection between us. The cousins in your last picture--the Browns--they are in my ward and she is my visiting teacher!! I was so shocked when I scrolled down and saw that picture!! How funny. Small world once again. Do you think we were just meant to be friends? :-)
