Pure Joy

There is pure joy
In watching my daughter 
Decide that she believes
In the same Jesus
Who lives inside of me
To see her get up
And though she scared
In her own words
She said “my stomach
Feels real weird”
Yet she stood
Excited and ready
In the water and nodded
That she’s asked Jesus
To live inside her
And dedicated her life
To a life with Him
Serving God
The very One who
Death could not keep
It could not conquer 
It has no claim on Him
For today is Easter
And my daughter 
Got baptized
And He is risen
He is risen indeed
As my heart overflows
Today, this Easter

With pure joy 


The robe was a bit too long.
