Wonderful Weekend

My owner said she had the best weekend of her life!

On Sabbath afternoon she was re-baptized at Forest Lake Church.
Here she is standing in front of the congregation with Pr. Morris during the service:

The beautiful baptismal tank:

Enjoying the moment:

Sharing her testimony before being baptized:

Preparing for her new birth:

Group picture afterwards:

Then, on the drive home, my owners saw the biggest rainbow they had ever seen!

And because of the rain, the rainbow seemed to end right on the hood of their car!!

It's almost as if God was showing his promise like the Bible says in Genesis 9: 13, 14, 16: "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud, And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that [is] upon the earth."

Now, whenever my owner sees a rainbow, she will be reminded of her baptism!

When my owners finally got home, my dad surprised my mom with some pretty flowers and her favorite - a gourmet cupcake. How sweet!

I took a picture with her too... but I really just wanted to eat her cupcake.

Then on Sunday, we all went to Honeymoon Island.
Here I am, all dry and content:

And here I am, positively miserable and swimming for my life!

I felt like a sissy needing this inflatable alligator:

But then I saw a pug and a poodle float by and I felt much better:

Here I am, wondering how I'm ever going to get across this seemingly huge "river" in front of me:

Then, after much coaxing:

Whew! I made it without drowning!
Umm, the "river" was much bigger in person:

My owner, doing her favorite pastime on the beach:

A pelican, right before it dove into the water to catch it's prey:

On the way home, we stopped by the Peabody hotel for dinner... the famous ducks had already done their walk (waddle) down the red carpet and were in their recreational area.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Blessings, Susie, on your rebaptism. How special.
I'm a little jealous with all the beach activities... :-)
You should visit Sanibel Island sometime. You'd like it a lot. There are lots of shells and it's really beautiful
