2: Madison's Baptism
3: Madison's baptism was held onJune 30, 2012 at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Dallas, Texas.
4: He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14-16
6: Madison, Your mother, my mother, and Daddy's mother sang to you a special song for your baptism. Jesus loves you. This I know. Always know that Jesus loves you, and he is always with you.
7: Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so; Little ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong. Jesus loves me! He who died, Heaven's gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in. Jesus loves me! He will stay, Close beside me all the way; If I love him when I die He will take me home on high Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so
9: This Little Light of Mine, I'm going to let it Shine!
10: Our Prayer I pray you'll be her eyes, and watch her where she goes. And help her to be wise in times when she doesn't know. Let this be our prayer, if she loses her way I pray she'll find your light, and hold it in her heart. When stars go out each night, remind her where you are. Let this be our prayer if shadows fill her days. We ask that life be kind, and watch her from above. We hope her soul will find another soul to love Let this be our prayer, just like every child Needs to find a place, guide her with your grace To a place where she'll be safe
