Today was great. I got to sleep in, but still had enough time to finish up the Christmas cards that need to be hand carried to the post office and still had enough time to take my time getting to Church. We had a good meeting in branch council. It sounds like we will be starting a teacher development class again.
I was asked during sacrament meeting to come up and bear my testimony and talk about the temple. This was supposed to be a way to use up 10-15 minutes, but I couldn’t come up with anything to talk about in the 15 seconds it took me to walk to the stand. I talked for maybe two minutes. If I had been told that I would be speaking later I’m sure I could have come up with 5-15 minutes of material, but I didn’t want to just throw something out there without pondering it first.
Kyle ended up not being able to join us today, so Sister Dowden stepped in and taught gospel principles which worked out really well. I was sad that I didn’t get to enjoy Marissa’s lesson, but I’m sure it was great.
I had a great time catching up with some friends who are back for Christmas today. I guess there is more to like about Christmas than the cookies…
It sounds like it’s going to be a busy week. This is also our stake’s week to go to the temple, so I’m going to have to try and find some time. Our branch’s day is Friday, but with everything else going on I don’t know if that will work out the best. I still haven’t figured out what I’m doing tomorrow, but I guess since I haven’t told otherwise, i had better plan on showing up at GT around 9!
