New Life New Creation

Spring is my favorite time of the year. Spring is full of new life in bloom. The flowers, the buds on the trees, the grass is turning green, and my husband has already mowed the lawn. I love the beauty that God creates in the Spring time. It seems that with each new day I see new life growing. A new creation in nature.

But nature and Spring are not the only areas where new life and new creations happen! In fact, God makes each of us A New Creation when we accept Jesus into our hearts, and proclaim our faith to Him! 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; 
the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17

This is Easter weekend, and this is the one Easter that I will NEVER forget! My son, Michael, has made the choice to accept Jesus into his heart, and to be baptized! My son is a New Creation! He was baptized on Saturday, March 26, 2016, and I can tell you that it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. My heart was overflowing with gratefulness and thankfulness to God, it still is! I don't think I have stopped smiling yet! God is so good! The other awesome thing, is that my son's church moved into a new building, and Saturday night was the very first service, so he was the very first person baptized in their new church. 

This is my son before the service (the old) with his daughter, my beautiful granddaughter, Allie!

This is my son preparing to become New!

This is my son as a NEW CREATION! 

My husband and I have 5 grown children between us, and we have prayed together for several years to see the day that each one of them would make the choice to become new. My daughter made the choice last year, which was another beautiful day, and she has such a dedicated heart for God! 

I am sure that you feel my joy, my excitement, my gratefulness, and my thankfulness to God, if you are a mother that has seen her children make this beautiful choice! Now, we will continue to pray for the remaining 3 with fervent prayers. We have full faith and trust, that they too, will become New Creations one day soon!

Linking up with Karen at Tuesday at Ten The word of the week is NEW!


  1. This is so awesome Rachelle! There is nothing like watching our children walk out their commitment to the Lord!

    1. Thank you Barbie! You are so right! I just pray this will plant seeds and possibly create a chain reaction with our remaining 3!

  2. Oh Rachelle,, how wonderful and such a blessing! My son has chosen to be baptized. Still praying for our daughter! Rejoicing with you and your family! Cindy
