Billy and I had both accepted Christ into our lives, some time ago...but as far as being water baptized, neither of us had. We knew that this trip to the ocean would be the one that we would be officially baptized with the water of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! That same beautiful water got pretty rough with the storms so when we came across this De Soto National Monument, we figured it was a pretty obvious "sign"!
Blake had been officially baptized, and is as much of a pastor as anyone we know, so he did the honors. Billy and I were baptized in the Little Manatee River, aside a giant cross on the bank.
We got back to the condo and just hung out at the beach. It's our last night here, why does it have to be depressing? We have to focus on the awesome week we have had here in paradise!
