I am so proud of my sweet Addison!
She chose to be baptized last Saturday. I loved watching her excitement and happiness as she became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The day, honestly, was bitter sweet for me. Days like these really make me miss this girl’s Daddy who is in Heaven. But I know he was there with us. And I am SO incredibly grateful for the Daddy she has here on Earth. It was a day full of family, food, tears (some sad but mostly happy), and such a strong spirit of peace. I got especially emotional as we sang the song, “When I am Baptized.”
I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.
I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
And I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.
I am so thankful for the words of this beautiful song. And they are true! Without Jesus Christ in my life, I would have no hope, or purpose. But because of him, I can find peace and true joy, even through trials and heartache. If anyone reading is interested in learning more about what my family and I believe, contact me via email (in contact section of this blog), or via Facebook (addilynjack) and I would love to mail you your very own copy of the Book of Mormon! Free of charge of course! 🙂
Thanks for reading!
