Baptismal Statement by Clemarie Thomas
May 27, 2007

When the light is green you go. When the light is red you stop. But what do you do when the light turns blue, with orange and lavender spots?

Okay, that’s a pretty big decision; I mean what would you do? We’re all faced with rally big challenges in our lives. Like choosing to be a Christian; who you hang out with; how you act. Doing what’s right.

It’s a pretty confusing world. Life happens to be very tough at times. Then there are the days where one good decision makes the whole day very good.

Every day that I wake up is a good day. Every day that I feel like I have accomplished something feels good. On the bad days and the good days, I’m always looking to God to give thanks or to ask for help. Especially on those bad days I ask why, or what went wrong. But I always seem to make it through them no matter what.

At first I was a little anxious to get baptized. Wondering if I’m capable of making the good decisions or if I’m worth it. And then I think, well, God put me here for a reason so I am worth it.

I think my passion for art is that reason, so everyday I put my gift to work and I do what I can to be the best that I can be.

So why not get baptized. I’m ready now. This is a big step on the right path and I’m ready to take it. I am so excited to take a big breath of air after being cleansed of all my sins . It will be a big weight off my shoulders so that I can start fresh. I know I will still have obstacles on my way but with help from my church family and God on my side, I’m sure I can handle them.

So bring it on, I’m READY!
