Baptism week for the Sisters in Kempsville, VA!
Sister Thornton tore some ligaments in her ankle!
Thus the brace.
In the baptism they sang the Primary song "When I am Baptized"
about rainbows after rain and they came out to see this beautiful sight!
Life is humid and sweaty...and some more humid. But I am happier than ever. I love the gospel.
"Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities, and forever and always be loyal to the church.Never forget that you came to earth as a child of the divine Father, with something of divinity in your very makeup. The Lord did not send you here to fail. He did not give you life to waste it. He bestowed upon you the gift of mortality that you might gain experience—positive, wonderful, purposeful experience—that will lead to life eternal. He has given you this glorious Church, His Church, to guide you and direct you, to give you opportunity for growth and experience, to teach you and lead you and encourage you. Of course there will be some problems along the way. There will be difficulties to overcome. But they will not last forever. He will not forsake you.
Look to the positive. Know that He is watching over you, that He hears your prayers and will answer them, that He loves you and will make that love manifest. Let the Holy Spirit guide you in all that you do as you look to become the kind of woman of whom you dream. You can do it. You will have friends and loved ones to help. And God will bless you as you pursue your course. This, girls, is my humble promise and prayer in your behalf, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen."
