Yesterday was a gift.
Chay spent Saturday night preparing for his Elder's quorum lesson. He was nervous and a little frustrated. When he told me that the subject of his lesson was the first vision, I told him not to worry- the Spirit will take over. It is pretty much a "feel the spirit" guarantee when you talk about the first vision- regardless of the teaching skills.
Kenzie gave her first talk in primary yesterday. She talked about families. I had to help her say the big words "salvation, progress, ordained."
After church at least 5 men in the ward approached me, including the 2nd counselor in the stake presidency, and told me how amazing of a job Chay did in his lesson. It made me so happy for Chay.
Last night we watched the church video "Truth Restored" and Kenzie was so enthralled with it- I felt like I was watching it for the first time as I watched her eyes and reaction. We then watched "The Testaments" which caused motive for a long discussion before bedtime. Kenzie kept wondering about why the people hurt Jesus- and why is Jesus dead? And oh boy- so I did some explaining that took probably 15 minutes...Kenzie thinks a lot and she takes information and processes it differently than most I think. I like her inquiring mind. She will keep me on my info toes.
so all in all yesterday was full of truth. I just kept feeling the witness of the Holy Ghost- reaffirming that my life was very blessed- and full of truth- and that everything is going to be ok.
and...I feel so very prompted to work harder on things- you know, like teaching my family more about faith, obedience, the atonement, kindness, showing my love for them more, being a better visiting teacher, find ways to make more out of my calling- ...maybe I should get off the computer then and do something more with my day??? You think? It is like I am avoiding reality when I hover over this laptop-
anyway- life is good. It really is.
