It was an absolutely gorgeous setting for this sacred ordinance. The beach was empty, except for 2 moms with their small kids.
The service was short and the spirit was strong. The image of her being plunged below the placid blue water is engraved on my mind. When she came up from the water, she didn't even look as though she were wet. It was a serene and very surreal moment.
She was thrilled to receive her own set of scriptures with her name engraved on the front from Grandpa and Grandma Jones. She has spent most of the day flipping through the pages and reading here and there. She said she wants to start at the beginning and read all the way to the very end.
I noticed after I was putting together the slide show that I didn't get any pictures of just Mariah =<. If anyone that was here did, can you send it to me? I am planning to take her to Kiddie Kandids as soon as we move back to get professional pictures of her in her dress.
