O Happy Day!
A certain little girl in our house loves race horses.
And movies about race horses.
We’ve watched Secretariat well over 100 times over the course of the summer.
An old hymn is the heart of the soundtrack.
And we have it memorized.
God, in His providence, put it there.
Because it has zero to do with horses and everything to do with Jesus.
Kayla was baptized by her dad last Sunday.
And while she expressed a clear desire to take this next step,
I was anxious about her having a proper understanding of what she was doing.
But I am so thankful.
God gave us the grace to share, explain and teach our little girl through a movie.
A story about a horse.
With a song about Jesus and redemption and baptism as the backdrop.
Being baptized doesn’t mean we’ve won the race.
It lets everyone know we’re running.
