I LOVE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH



It was baby dedication time today and the little toddler being honored got bored while waiting for her time to come.  Early on the service she burst into crocodile tears.  I couldn’t help but laugh.  I don’t think I’ve ever heard a baby cry in our sanctuary.  To me it was downright refreshing!  She had herself a good squall time.  I was sitting close enough to see the harried reaction of her mom.  They didn’t appear on the program until the end.  Pastor Quizenberry tried all his tricks to charm her.  But she wasn’t buying any of them.  She just gave him a stiff shoulder and huddled up close to her daddy.  Not to be outdone Thomas stuck his impish face between the two of them who by now were wrapped in a soft blanket of love. He didn’t try to waltz her down the church alise to give us all a closeup view.
