Day three. My original plan of keeping this as small as possible might not be, well, possible. Elders talked me into having this announced, so it was, so here I am, already nervous about myself- now I have to face the fact that on top of that, I am anxious having a fact that a bunch of people might attend.
I’m trying to look at the better side of it: That I will be surrounded by people who actually cares. That actually will spend their time on the weekend, and their gas in their cars, to support me being baptized. That’s a good sign, right? Now I just need to work on my nervousness. Gee, a lot of people will see me soaking wet!
Between the classes, I asked one of the church official, “what is the most common thing that people forget during the ceremony?” After giving a moment to think, he replied “Don’t forget to bring towel.”
Good advise. I have a picture in my head, shaking myself dry like a dog out of the bath. Now that would be a ceremony the attendees do not forget, would it?
