Special Pic Post

The long awaited day arrived.
Three dear friends came to be baptised in our pool.
We had prayed for good weather but we got so much more than we ever could have imagined.
The first true early summer Cape Town day - truly incomparable.
Just a wonderful experience! I was so glad to be able to share it with them all.

@ Shayne - Ja, it was an emotional as well as spiritual experience. These women are part of the group I facilitate in the Breaking Free study so this meant a lot to me as well as to them.
I really love these women.

@ Kirsty - well we dont make a habit of this :-) but hopefully it culd happen again sometime.
It was the most gorgeous day.
