On Sunday, after many months of talking and sharing and meeting with one of the pastors at our church, Peyton decided to make his profession of faith public by being baptized. As I watched Peyton share (in just a few words) why he was being baptized, my eyes filled with tears. He simply said, "Hi, my name is Peyton Head, I've decided to follow Jesus and I just wanted to let everyone know." I was so proud of him. Speaking into a microphone and getting up in front of everyone can be intimidating but he did it without hesitation and without batting an eye. He was excited and so were his Dad and I. Adam got a little choked up himself as he shared just a bit about how we've seen God working in Peyton's life. How proud we were to be able to stand with him that day as he publicly shared with everyone his love for the Lord. (It was originally supposed to have been an outdoor baptism but due to the rain it was held inside.
"There is no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth" 3 John 1:4. We were all excited to get to witness and be apart of this special day. One of his sweet friends made this sign for him, how true! Luke 15:10 says, "I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
We love you Peyton and are so proud of you son!
