"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"
“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Covenant Theology and Ducks
So you might be thinking, "What does covenant theology have to do with a Duck?"
Well, let me tell you a story.
Over the last year we have been discussing baptism with the girls,after 2 expressed a desire for baptism. They have learned to explain it quite well.
Since then, Anna has been baptized, but Erika and Sarah have not.
Anna was baptized when Erika was in a body cast, and since that time, the elders of our church are discussing if children should be baptized. (that is another post)
So, on Sunday morning, our teacher was teaching on Baptism. He mentioned several scriptures that related to "and they and their whole household were baptized."
Anna immediately picked up on "and their whole household", and that got her to thinking..... a dangerous thing sometimes for her....
"The duck is part of the household, she is in our family"....
She came in from playing and announced, "I Baptized the Duck!"
"I read her a verse from the Bible, Sang a Song, when she heard the word God, she quacked, so I baptized her." :)
We now have a Christian Duck. :)
I might start calling her Sister Aunt Jemima Puddle Duck or Saint Aunt Jemima Puddle Duck.
