52 Blessings Project, Week Two

The Beautiful California weather drew us to the seashore yesterday. Thus the impetus for today's 52 BP....water!!

I love the sound of the ocean waves. It is calming yet energizing. It's power is extraordinary. The ocean is ever changing as, is our lives.

Water...what would we do without water??
There is nothing like a cool refreshing glass of water of a warm summer day. Water is essential to our bodies health!

After a hard day of work there is nothing like a refreshing shower to cleanse our body. We use water to wash to our clothes and our dishes. We are so fortunate to live where we have clean water to wash things and to drink.

We are immersed in water when we are baptized, in the same manner as the Savior Jesus Christ. It is one of the first principles of the Gospel. Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:5

Every Sunday when we attend church we partake of the Sacrament water. It reminds us of the sacrifice of the Savior Jesus Christ in our behalf. It is an opportunity to remember the promises we made when we were baptised.

Water is life giving in many different ways and an incredible blessing!!

Thanks for posting this Cindy. I am very thankful for water too. Especially when I can take a shower! Ahh, it feels good to be clean. I love to remember the clean feeling of being baptized too.
