Taking the plunge…again

After I got home last night - and ate because I was hangry - Chad came out on the porch to talk with me. It was a nice talk even though I had to tell him "No, we can't afford that," to which he didn't whine or beg, but just accepted with an "Okay." I think we might both be growing up. haha :) So anyway, I said, "Oh, hey, did I tell you I am getting rebaptized Sunday?" His response was great. "Did your first one expire?" The delivery made it funny. And I gave him a serious answer. I was originally baptized when I was 14, and it was a valid believer's baptism by immersion. So why do it again? I mean, really, I've never thought I needed another one. Truth be told, I still don't think I need another one because my original was valid. However, when I did my 3rd step prayer, it amounted to a complete rededication. So partially because of that and partially because I have a much better understanding of the significance of baptism, it's more to me of a complete ownership of my faith as mine rather than somewhat of my parent's faith as it was when I was a kid. So Sunday afternoon after the 1pm service at newhopeSanford, I'm taking the plunge...again.
