It is Sunday and we had a baptism! A mature lady named Daisy came into the Church. She may not have a smile but she was very happy. She has been a widow for thirty years and was a project manager at a private firm and at night made sweet snacks to sell for extra money to put her three children through college. She now has six grandchildren. There probably have been many night when she did not feel like smiling. When Daisy starts talking her face lights up and you know that she was given the perfect name.
Daisy's friend came today to be with her for the baptism. They were both born in Sri Lanka. It was fun to meet her friend and find out that her name is Elizabeth.
