12 years ago tonight, I can barely remember who was there.
12 years ago tonight, that old life ended and this new one began.
What I do remember...
Walking to the baptismal font at the Chapel of the Incarnation.
Sweet, smiles all around me- now my sisters and my brothers
But mostly the cool water.
That cool water, poured over my face, mixed with my hot tears.
That's what I remember.
Now I'm wondering about and praying for and cheering on every person whose hot tears mixed with that cold water tonight.
Hallelujah! He is risen!
