Hey fabulous people!
I hope you week started off well. Mine sure did. On January 6, 2013 I got Baptized! Wow! It must have been one of the best decisions I've made so far in this life of mine! I know I probably got baptized when I was quite young. I'm sure I didn't know what it meant, so I'm glad I was able to make the decision on my own. I'm now consciously aware of what it means. I can't begin to tell you how awesome it feels, to know that I've fully handed my life to Christ. Not that I hadn't before, but getting baptized was the seal. My life has been signed, sealed and delivered to God! :)
Great things happened that day, things I didn't even plan for. The Holy Spirit does work in a sneaky way and I'm a living testimony of that. Let's just say God is great. I don't want to go into too much details, so I'll just let you check out my outfit (after getting baptized) on that day. Take a look:
When one gets baptized, you are to get under water. So, those who were getting baptized were advice to wear dark clothing, and something that wouldn't cling unto your body after you get out of the water. That day the look above was what I had already wore, but after my sister saw my outfit she suggested I wear sweats. LOL! Why Sis. Funmi?! :)
Well, the sweats weren't such a good idea, because it held a lot of water after getting out of the water. It's all good though, because I had my towel with me and I was able to change (again) to the outfit pictured above.
As you can see, I had no makeup on. I didn't even fill in my eyebrows! Wearing makeup was not even an option, because it would have smeared off since I would be all wet and stuff. The day before getting baptized, I took out my braids, because I wanted to be all 'natural.' I'm glad I went that route!
What I'm wearing:
Bib necklace: Cut off from an old dress
Glasses: America's Best (yes, they are prescription )
Thanks for reading!
Have you been baptized? How did you feel when you were?
Take care! :)
