This is a picture I carry with me in my Bible. It was taken July 4, 1971, in a chapel at Pearl Harbor, HI. Pictured are a Roman Catholic Chaplain on the right, my surrogate godparents on the left, and, if you haven't guessed already, I am in the middle being baptized. Want to know what I love most about this picture? That my Mom and Dad loved me so much that less than 3 weeks after I was born they desired to enter into a covenantal relationship with me and God, promising to raise me with steadfast love and nurture in the Christian faith. I fully believe that the journey I am on today began in the moment captured here on film. Thanks be to God for His grace and for my parents and their love for me.
