Sunday Lesson

I had to teach the lesson today in RS meeting.  I wanted to teach something on the Savior, but not about his birth.  I wanted it to be something different.  So I planned a lesson based around a program we had done in our last ward.  It's called a 14-Day Walk With Christ.  I had several ladies in our ward tell their favorite story of the Savior and why it was so special to them.  Then I told my favorite story.  It was an amazing day.  After I told my story, I went over six points to come closer to Christ.  They were taken from a talk given by George W. Pace and are:

  • First: To know the Lord is to know that he is literally the Son of God.
  • Second: To know the Lord is to know that we can pray through him and converse in prayer as one converses with another.
  • Third: To know the Lord is to know in a personal way that he suffered for us.
  • Fourth: To know the Lord is to know that we can become like him.
  • Fifth: To know the Lord is to know that through him all of life’s problems can be solved.
  • Sixth: To know the Lord is to know that he loves us as a loving father.
After I had gone over these points, one last sister told her favorite story of the birth of our Savior.  She had a video and a song and it was beautiful.  I felt very bless to have the help with this lesson.  Everyone was so gracious about helping and more than willing. 

One thing that was truly special was in the closing prayer, the sister thanked our Heavenly Father that our Savior gave us the chance to live.  As I enjoyed the spirit of what was being said, I felt a burning that our Savior really has blessed us that one day we can truly live and be with Him again.  My spirit was lifted and I have been blessed!  It was a great Sunday lesson and I didn't have a thing to do with it!

I can't believe it.  Fall is gone and winter is here.  December has already turned out to be crazy.  I usually put Christmas decorations up the day after or at least by the weekend after Thanksgiving, but not this year!  I wanted to do it today, but am finishing up studies for Psychology.  I will be taking my final tomorrow.  But my dear sweet husband said he would help me get things up tonight!  He is so wonderful.  I couldn't ask for a better husband.  He's been so willing to help since I started school.  And at this rate if I don't get it up tonight it won't go up until 2 weeks before Christmas.  And at that point I know I'd say, only 2 weeks, what's the point?  So it's tonight and I'm glad.

Once I finish school, I will begin my Dream Job. And I really do mean my Dream Job.  I have always, since I was little wanted to be like my friend Blanch Gibby and work in or own my own floral shop.  Well, on December 13th I will begin working at Bowcut Floral in Tremonton.  I will be working for a sweet lady named Suzanne Pierson.  She is so sweet and it will be fun getting to know her and the other girls and making some new friends. 

So I guess here we go another new adventure..... I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
