Baptism

The day had finally arrived!! June 3rd 1998! Brian and I were going to be entering the waters of baptism! One, to be cleansed of all of our sins and two, to become Members of the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints!

We didn't have many family members there but we did have LOTS of our Ward family attend! I didn't know what to expect as my first 2 experiences with baptism were empty. No feeling and no meaning. Empty shells. I wasn't looking for another because I know, in my heart, that this is where the Truth was. This is what I needed to do.. and to have my husband with me while we both were baptized this day was wonderful!! I didn't want to do this without him by my side!

The font was filled but it was too full so someone let the water out and walked away letting it almost completely empty. They had to fill it again but there was no more hot water. When I walked down into the water it was so cold. When the time came to be placed under the water and brought back up, I felt a cloak of warmth surround me as I walked out of the water. I didn't notice the cold anymore, all I felt was warmth and love. Walked up out of the faunt and went into the dressing room to get dressed. I cried! Tears of joy!
