What a Beautiful Day

4 June 2016
William Benjamin Gray was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
by his father Rob Gray
Witnesses: Ed Gray and Terry Rachel
He is such a sweet boy!
We were surrounded by family and several friends as we gathered for this special time. The weather was perfect!  William's friends, Milo, Ben and Carter came to the baptism.  Along with our family in Utah.  Uncle Jon and Heidi were able to come to the luncheon afterwards.  It was such a special day.  As we waited for the other children to be baptized we were able to watch some church videos in the chapel.  They helped us feel the spirit so strongly!  I can say the spirit touched me in a special way as I looked at William sitting there next to Rob.  He still seems so young to me.  Is he really old enough to make these special promises with Father in Heaven?  Are we really at this point in life?  Rob did a great job on the baptism and confirmation.  One part that especially sticks out to me that I will share is that he blessed William to "hold to truth....and run from evil."  

After the baptism we gathered at our house for a spread of RAINBOW food.From the fruit to the desserts, it was all yummy and fun to look at.  William has always loved rainbows, what better way to celebrate this boy and his good choices than with beautiful colors and happy times.  He is my Sweet William!
