For the second time this week, family gathered in Thanks Giving. This time for tiny Belle.
As with Lucy last year, we took her to the church which has been an important part of Bush family life for generations -- she and Lucy are the 6th. She was baptized and presented as the newest member of the congregation of believers at St. John United Methodist Church.
When the time comes, she will choose where she will place her loyalty and her beliefs, but meanwhile, she will learn about God's love in this place, from these people.
After the service, the combined families of Belle's parents shared a meal at our house. Later in the day, Lucy and I finally got a nap in my big bed upstairs. It was a beautiful day.
(Lucy shared her tiara with Belle. A big step!)
