Baptism Anniversary Gift

L's Godmother, the lovely Katie B., made the following gift in honor of the day L was washed of the stain of original sin and brought into the family of God. This gift is so great, so beautiful and thoughtful that I wanted to share it with everyone.
The box was marked with L's initials. When it's opened you find a small, homemade, trifold card and a little envelope marked "L's Pearls".
The card includes several Bible quotes, along with a note about what it means to be Baptized and loved by God.
The envelope includes 3 pearls, each representing a member of the Holy Trinity. Every year on the anniversary of her Baptism, Katie will give L 3 more pearls until she's 18 and will have enough for a necklace.

Travis and I were both so touched by this gift. We absolutely love it and know that as L grows up she too will cherish the gift and all its symbolism.
