This weekend was big for Whitney and I. We chose to get baptized at our church before she went back to college.
I was raised Catholic so I was baptized when I was a week old. And I went through all the Catholic steps (confession, confirmation) but I never felt anything with them. We even had Whitney baptized when she was a baby.
But this was different. This meant something to both of us. Now I finally understand why people say that you should make your own decision to be baptized. Why most religions don't baptize babies and make sure children are old enough to understand their decision.
I don't talk much about religion here. I'll mention my church and the great things it does, but I don't get too deep about anything more than that. But I feel a deep need to share the good news that I chose to get baptized.
