Love Those Wildwood Days!

9 years ago

I am so grateful for my vacation and time away for fun and the sun. We spent a few days on the shores of Wildwood New Jersey. I had much fun: braving the crazy rollercoasters (which scrambled my brains so bad, I had a headache for the longest afterward), and I even braved a scarey ride, which had little kids coming out with a smile on their face, while I on the other hand was scared to death. *Ask my son, how badly I performed :-)* If that little car that we were on went through another set of double doors, I was going to get out and walk out!

The best part of the amusement park however was the water park. A few rides down the long and winding tubes, proved to be exciting and we drifted lazily on colorful inner tubes around the water park, surrounded by fun music and bumping into others along the way. In the center of the park, was an attraction which boasts "The Big Bucket". A bucket of water which fills up periodically with 4 tons of water...the bell begins ringing - alerting you to the fact that 1000 gallons of water is about to splash down upon you...

Now, I know that we are only baptized once...but I came to be refreshed...and what better way to affirm your "baptism" than at a water park, being drenched with 1000 gallons of water! I asked my son to snap a pic, thinking I was going to be drenched once...but...

I was drenched, not once, not twice, but three times. *Somehow, my son stated that he couldn't get the timing right on the camera* (sure...sure..) Instead of being dunked, I was splashed and drenched! In the name of the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit!

I was reminded of God's provision of the everlasting life-giving source of water! At SplashZone! Amen!
