A to Z of Thankful Me: B

A to Z Challenge, Day 2:  B

B is for Baptism, which happens at eight
(or even older, it’s never too late!)



It’s also for Books, and Bargains, and Blogging,

This was a bargain book, purchased for Grandpa (John).  He loved reading Bronc Burnett books as a kid.
And Birthdays, complete with candles for blowing!

    1. Thank you. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not baptize children before they are 8 years old, which is why I used that age in my post.

  2. Yes, it is never too late to be baptized: I was baptized when I was 21.

    1. I remember Hardy Boys, but I wasn't familiar with Bronc Burnett.

  4. made me think of the Tom Swift books that I used to own.... (my mother was very much a 'enjoy the library' person, and I discovered at a very early age that sometimes a library would sell old and worn books... what an incredible idea (for my 10 year old self)... to have my own books.
    nice

    1. I really think I will turn it into a book for my grandkids.

  6. Beautifully said and enlightning. Didn't know baptizing is done when you're eight or could be done at any age. In our church (I'm Dutch reformed) we get baptized in our first year, prefably around 3 or 4 months old.... Thanks for the insight.
    For me the B stands for Books, Books, Books and more Books!!!

    1. It is interesting how different churches view baptism, isn't it? Eight is considered the age of accountability, when children are old enough to understand the commitment they are making and can be responsible for their actions.
      Books are wonderful!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK.

Ten Things of Thankful: #GeneralConference Anticipation

  Jesus Christ stands in an crowd of kneeling worshippers, with the caption "Peace be unto you."  source In last week's post, I expressed gratitude for some things that hadn't actually happened yet, but that I hoped would soon. This week, I'm thankful that some of those things have happened--and I'm still holding out hope that the others will. In addition, I'm thankful in advance for other events.  To revisit last's week's anticipatory items: My air purifier was repaired, the company sent it back to me, and I'm thankful for clean air. The car wash company accepted responsibility for the accident, have authorized a check to be written to the repair company, and I'm thankful I have an appointment scheduled for the new bumper to be installed. The shop did get the van repaired, though not in time for me to renew the tags before the end of September. However, I'm thankful that the state of Utah offers a temporary registration for only $6 whi
