Baptism Anniversary Gift

Lydia's Godmother, the lovely Katie B., made the following gift in honor of the day Lydia 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 Lydia's initials. When it's opened you find a small, homemade, trifold card and a little envelope marked "Lydia's Pearls".
The card includes several Bible quotes, along with a note about what it means to be Baptised 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 Lydia 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 Lydia grows up she too will cherish the gift and all its symbolism.
