The Sacred Susquehanna-Inside front cover, Ensign Magazine

I was surprised and pleased when I opened my June issue of the Ensign Magazine and saw the inside front cover.  I had forgotten that The art department of that magazine had chosen this painting.  The painting represents the day Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdrey were baptized in the Susquehanna River in the very northern part of Pennsylvania, while they were involved in translating and transcribing the Book of Mormon.  I visited and spent some time at the very spot where I think the baptism took place.  It was a grand and marvelous day when I was there, as you can see.  I waded out into the river. The water was clear and beautiful.
