Covenant baptism is instituted by the Lord Jesus as a sign and seal of the covenant of His grace—and thus of the promise of our ingrafting to Him, of our union with Him, of our adoption by Him, and our regeneration in Him. This is a wonderful promise made to believers and their children—thus showing us that every member of the covenant community is given access to His means of grace in the visible Church.
Oh, it was a joyful day! Sweet Hazel wore her big sister's gown and bonnet, with Evie's monogram on the front (we will add Hazel's now as well). It was special to have a piece of our heritage there with us on such a momentous day - after all, Evie's life is a part of Hazel's story too!
