Contrast on the field

Since I’ve got back from Romania the weather has been lovely in the UK. This summer I moved into another house for my final year and I’ll be sharing it with J (who is the owner of the house and kindly agreed to take me in) and Cornelia. On one of my walks around the neighbourhood I’ve noticed that there is a field of wheet that is in walking distance. So, on Sunday we’ve arragenged an outing on the field for some photographs. This is what got out of it:

The dunking

Well it was about time I took The Bath. So the date was set for the 4 of July to get baptized by pastor D. What determined me to make this step? Two words, Jesus Christ, God’s Son, my Lord, my Savior. Since I gave my life to Him in 2007, I’ve never been the same again. How did Jesus revealed Himself to me? Through Nicoleta who is now my fiancée. Now back to the day of my baptism. Emotions were there for all of us. God made sure that I will be able to get in the water and get out safely and easily (it’s a bit complicated when you have no control whatsoever in your muscles). The water was so warm, it felt exactly like bath water! The whole time I was in there the sun peeked through the clouds and shined upon me and everyone around.

I feel refreshed through God’s Spirit and cleansed every day by his love. I thank Jesus’s grace for choosing me to take part in his family and enjoy eternal life. I am so glad I got to witness in front of everyone and I hope they can see God working in me.

The moment of truth :D.I was a bit squashed :))

I will betroth you to me forever

“I will betroth you to me forever;

I will betroth you in righteousness and justice,

in love and compassion.

I will betroth you in faithfulness,

and you will acknowledge the LORD.”      Hosea 2:10-20

These are the vows we said to each other on the 26th of June in front of our friends and family. We decided to have a small party to announce our engagement to the ones we love and also to set the date of the wedding – the 3rd of September 2011 :). It was a very busy, emotional and happy day for the two of us. And it also says that we are now full power on for the wedding .

What follows will be a period of highly importance for both, when we’ll have to stop imagining and start putting it into practice, get ourselves organised and be willing to learn about each other. And it’s not going to be easy with me 2500 kilometers away from Chris. But with God’s help we’ll do it all.
