We're in Minnesota
For a Very Special Day
For we headed out early today, this Sunday, to
Mount Calvary Lutheran Church
For Grand Girl Piper
Was to be baptized
In a dress of mine
In a bonnet of mine
Wearing a childhood cross of mine as a necklace
During the 9 a.m. service
baptized our dear Grand Girl
The first of the holy sacraments
That of Baptism
In the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost
And after, Miss Piper Elizabeth Punch
was introduced to the congregation.
After the Baptism,
we participated in the other Lutheran sacrament
That of Holy Communion
The sermon and music that morning were outstanding.
We celebrated after
|Grand girl Lucy and Poppy enjoying the pre meal popover -- a regular occurrence here in Minnesota -- popovers being the bread basket bread at restaurants!|
With brunch at Hazelwoods.
A favorite restaurant in their little town.
The negative fifteen degree cold did not deter us
(nor a large part of the congregation)
for this very special day.
