Our Baptism at The Great Vigil of Easter

This past weekend has been a whirlwind of happiness, redemption, sunshine, family, and pure joy...
Words escape me at moments like these, so I leave you instead with photos and the lyrics to a beautiful hymn we sang at a family service during Lent. 

Our Baptism at The Great Vigil of Easter
Trinity Episcopal Church
Bethlehem, Pennyslvania

                                                 Wesley, myself, and his Godmother, Amanda


In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree;
In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.




                          There’s a song in every silence, seeking word and melody;
                      There’s a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me.
                        From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery,
                           Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.






                         In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
                  In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity,
                   In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
          Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.






....Hoping you had a beautiful Easter full of promise and joy!
*I'll be back soon to share some belated Easter and playschool photos; my camera is giving me trouble!
Special thanks to my Uncle Henry for photographing this special day:)
