Here is a little photoshoot we did today before Miss K's upcoming Baptism. The gorgeous dress was made by her Grandma!! The other two wanted to dress up in white too!!
MY THREE WHITE DRESSES
My mom bought me a white dress, Not red or pink or blue.
She said it was a special dress, Like very other few.
There has been just one before, A dress now put away,
That I wore some time ago, Upon my blessing day.
As a little baby clothed, In my first white dress,
My dad held me in his arms, There to name and bless.
So pure and clean was I just then, With time to grow and learn
About the Father's plan for me, My glory I must earn.
Now I've reached the age to judge, The wrong road from the right,
And I am here to be baptized, In this dress of white.
So once again I'm free from sin. The path is clear to me
I'll grasp the rod and hold on tight, I vow with certainty.
Just as mud would stain my dress, Sin would stain my soul.
The key is to repent or bleach, For whiteness is my goal.
And if I try my very best, Then richly blessed I'll be,
Wearing inside God's holy house, White dress number three.
So today I make this pledge: I'll strive to choose the right,
Through this sacred baptism ordinance, In my second dress of white

Go here if you are interested in What Baptism is and why are we baptised at 8?
We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the gospel are: First faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, second Repentance, third Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins and forth, Laying on of Hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost
