I Know When I am Baptized...

Aaron had a very special day yesterday...he was baptized and became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and received the Holy Ghost. He promised Heavenly Father that he will keep his commandments, always remember him, and be an example of Christ. It was so neat to see him so happy to make these special promises and I hope that he will remember to keep them the best that he can!

2 Nephi 31:10 - And he said unto the children of men: Follow thou me. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, can we follow Jesus save we shall be willing to keep the commandments of the Father?
 11 - And the Father said: Repent ye, repent ye, and be baptized in the name of my Beloved Son.
 17 - Wherefore, do the things which I have told you I have seen that your Lord and your Redeemer should do; for, for this cause have they been shown unto me, that ye might know the gate by which ye should enter. For the gate by which ye should enter is repentance and baptism by water; and then cometh a remission of your sins by fire and by the Holy Ghost.
 18 - And then are ye in this strait and narrow path which leads to eternal life; yea, ye have entered in by the gate; ye have done according to the commandments of the Father and the Son; and ye have received the Holy Ghost, which witnesses of the Father and the Son, unto the fulfilling of the promise which he hath made, that if ye entered in by the way ye should receive.

"I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain.
And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.
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 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."
