A Child is Blessed

My brother's first born was baptised this week-end!
All ready for his big day in a Burberry Baptismal suit. 

Proud momma watches as baby Matthew is blessed with Holy water.

Matthew with Priests and proud parents, after the ceremony.
Matthew did not fuss or cry the whole time.

Newest member of the church...

My brother and sister-in-love, hosted a beautiful luncheon after the baptism, at a local Italian restaurant.

Among the many thoughtful and beautiful gifts  everyone shower Matthew with, was this gorgeous custom handmade baby quilt, from Dolce Dreams.on ETSY As soon as Matthew was born I knew this would be one of the gifts Mr. G and I would be gifting him with.

My photos do not do the quilt justice. The bottom right hand corner, is embroidered with his name ~  Matthew and the month, day and year (7-14-2011) of his birth.

A sweet blessing to both our family and my sister-in-love's family, peacefully resting in Uncle G's arms.

Yes, my friends I am a proud Aunt!!!

Mark 1:9-11 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
