Oh That Pinterest Baby Shower {& a Poem for the Mamma}



For the Mamma-to-Be,
Well, you’re gunna be a mamma and it is a crazy story
God’s grace so evident as these months have testified to His glory
I don’t know how to make sense of these words in my head
Because there have been so many times wise words you have said

These six years have been sweet and you’ve taught me so much
Like how to cook and clean and use a vacuum and such
You led me to Jesus and have walked with me as I grow up
Your titles could fill a book by now—but these days, mamma is what’s sup!

I can’t wait to tell those boys all kinds of stories like how I gave you shingles
But don’t worry, I won’t ever tell them to make an account on Christian Mingle
An incredible mamma I know you will be
Mostly because you’ve gotten lots of practice being one for me!

These two that squirm around inside
It’s hard to believe they’re just along for the ride
You might walk a little slower and make more frequent stops
But don’t worry someday soon you’ll pop!

I can’t wait to meet them, to touch them, to kiss those cheeks
Don’t worry, I promise I’ll help you out when I can, even if they spring a leak 
The truth is you can’t mess em up too bad
Even if they do some things that make you so mad

Your love is unconditional, unchanging, and true
Only by the grace of God that lives in you
A husband to lead and a marriage held in Christ tight
What an incredible blessing these boys can cast worry out of sight

They will grow up in a house built on rock , not perfect of course
But that too is a blessing because God’s grace becomes their source
So on those days when sleep doesn’t come
Just remember He is always faithful and then some

It’s a new sanctification, a calling to disciple and train
And I know God will use it and He will also keep you sane
The news of two boys, comes great weight and even greater joys
As you begin to see your role of raising men from these boys

Just that you see the need and are ready for the ride
Leaves me in awe of you Ash, don’t worry each step He will guide
As through singlehood, courtship, marriage, lives given and one taken too soon
You have unceasingly walked faithful to the one who is promised and true

That is why I know and proclaim it today
Even through motherhood I know in your love for Christ you will not sway
I pray from tiny seed hidden away inside to men grown and married
That Si and Eli will always proclaim it is only by God’s grace they have been carried

Life is hard and messy and sometimes quite dark
And it is in this world these two boys in your womb can be that spark
Whether football star or living across the world with plenty of work to do
God’s word says He formed them, He set them apart too

He is the author and perfecter, the giver of life
And I pray these boys always remember the hope and future in the midst of life’s strife
Ash you’re the bestest and these boys already agree
After all you’re the Mamma, don’t you see?


















Love you Ashy...

  2. WATER BAPTISM, DO INFANTS QUALIFY?

    Are infants proper candidates for baptism? Do babies meet the requirements to be baptized? The short answer is no.

    Acts 8:26-40 ....36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, "Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized? 37 [And Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."]

    Unlike the Ethiopian eunuch; babies cannot believe with all their heart. Infants cannot make the confession, that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God. Babies do meet the requirements for water baptism.

    DAY OF PENTECOST

    Acts 2:22-37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, what shall we do?"

    There were no infants baptized on the Day of Pentecost. Why not?

    1. They could not believe in Jesus the Nazarene.
    2. Infants could not believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
    3. Babies could not realize that God made Jesus both Lord and Christ.
    4. Infants could not be pierced to the heart, nor could they ask, " Brethren, what shall we do?"

    Acts 2:38 Peter said to them,"Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    Infants do not need to repent; because they have no sin to repent from. Repentance means to turn from sin and turn toward God. Infants are not candidates for water baptism.

    Acts 2:41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.

    There were no infants added to the church that day. Why not? Because babies could not receive Peter's word. Infants are not capable of understanding the gospel. Infants are not qualified to be baptized in water.

    THE JAILER AND HIS HOUSEHOLD SAVED

    Acts 16:31-34 They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.....33.....and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household. 34 ....having believed in God with his whole household.

    The jailer and his whole household believed before they were baptized. There were no babies baptized. Infants are not capable of believing. Infants are not qualified to be baptized.

    THERE IS NO BIBLICAL RECORD OF ANY CHRISTIAN THAT WAS BAPTIZED BEFORE THEY BELIEVED.

    INFANTS CANNOT BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST. THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO BE IMMERSED IN WATER.
