Domine, miserere nobis

5th anniversary of my baptism... cannot believe it has been 5 years already.

Still vivid remember that day.... the people who were with me, shared my joy, and those who 'died' with me on that day, esp. the one person whom I'm closest to~

Pray that 5 yrs from now, the people whom I witnessed being baptized today, will cherish that memory and discover their growth and give thanks...

A poem for all of those who were with me then~

These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go with the multitude,
leading the procession to the house of God,
with shouts of joy and thanksgiving
among the festive throng.

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
My soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.

Happy Easter~
