I was able to attend a baptism today. For a man from the Congo.
I also conducted the music. A typical baptism program only has two songs--an opening and a closing hymn.
But, for this one, we sang several hymns in the middle, while waiting for him to get ready again after being baptized.
I still struggle to keep time, so this was a little nerve racking for me when I opened the program and saw the list of hymns. But, after the first 3 or 4, I kind of settled in and felt confident enough to immerse myself more in the spirit of the hymns. I think it was not a coincidence that this was the hymn we were singing:
This is a song that is often thought of as a "children's song", but really, it's message is for all of us. And today, it was precisely the message I needed and my Joyful Moment. I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who finds a way to let me feel His love even when I don't know how.
