Christening | Martehelie

"Even the sun directs our gaze away from itself and to the life illumined by it" - Eberhard Arnold

I always struggle a little bit when I write a blog post as I'm much better at telling stories with my camera than I am with my pen. Marthelie's christening was no different.

A christening to me is one of those very personal happenings in a persons life. The little child's life as well as the parents. It's intimate, it's sacred and not really something that I am able to describe in words. What I can however put in words is Matthew 5:16.

"16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

I found the beautiful words of a song from Lauren Daigle - "Salt & Light" that is based on
Matthew 5:13-16.

Oh the beauty of the King
You make righteous those who seek
You have written and redeemed my story

Let my eyes see Your kingdom shine all around
Let my heart overflow with passion for Your name
Let my life be a song, revealing who You are
For You are salt and light

Oh the love that set me free
You bring hope to those in need
You have written and redeemed my story

Let my eyes see Your kingdom shine all around
Let my heart overflow with passion for Your name
Let my life be a song, revealing who You are

For You are salt and light
You are love's great height
You are deep and wide
A consuming fire

You are salt and light
You are love's great height
You are deep and wide
A consuming fire

Let my eyes see Your kingdom shine all around
Let my heart overflow with passion for Your name
Let my life be a song, revealing who You are
For You are salt and light
You are salt and light
For You are salt and light
For You are salt and light

You can listen to it here - Salt & Light

Little Marthelie, may you always walk in Matthew 5:16.

xXx

Jolene and Martin welcomed their first child to the world after almost two full days of labour. Little Daniël gave his mom a run for her money, but she pushed through with the loving support of Martin her husband, and with the strength of their combined faith in God. In the end, their newborn son was the perfect blessing she knew he would be.
