Baptism a New Birth

     Our birth into this world is a momentous occasion as will be our death. There are many types and shadows to remind us of us of how we came to be. Each morning we are met with such a type.
   The light illuminates the birth of each new day and we rejoice in what today has to offer. The birth of the day takes many minutes to emerge. It is an event to behold and each moment changes until the sun is fully present in the sky.

    There are sunrises in our life which are types and shadows of our birth. One such is the event that initiates our spiritual birth which is baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I witnessed this event in the life of my grandson. He willingly chose to be baptized and this event was somewhat like a sunrise. The moment was illuminating for us all and worth being there for.

The best moment for me was when the three brothers grabbed on to each other for a guy photo. That was too sweet!!
