Good Sunday

Today was good. I still didn’t accomplish everything I was hoping to do, but I guess as long as the day wasn’t a complete bust I won’t complain too much. I had the whole morning off and spent it reading primarily. Church went well. I really like the talks from Melissa and Kim. Marissa was back teaching Sunday School and did a good lesson as well. It always amazes me at how much I manage to not pick up on while reading the lessons that we end up focusing on in class. We talked a lot about giving up a little sin that is holding us back. I was trying to figure out what that is in my life. I know I have lots of problems, I guess I’m just having a hard time focusing on one. Maybe it is not being considerate enough or forgiving.

We also talked a few times today about sharing the gospel and just opening our mouths. I was thinking what a great new opportunity I will have here with the house to start setting examples and traditions. I am looking forward to having a place where the Spirit will be welcome and a place where we can have those gospel discussions. Some examples were given of missionaries who were relentless with spreading the word and proclaiming the gospel. I wish I could have a fraction of the drive that they had to talk to a stranger when one helped you up from the ground after falling off your bike.

Larilyn and I made brownies after church for branch prayer. Sister Skaggs said that she wasn’t going to have anything chocolate there, so I called and asked if we should bring some brownies. They seemed like a big hit cause they were almost completely gone by the end of branch prayer tonight. It was the first time I got to use my new mixer and the oven which was good. Of course, we discovered more things that I was missing, so I’ve got some additions to the list. Maybe Sib and I will go shopping once she gets home next week.

I wanted to write to Sisters Caldwell and Shiess today, but i apparently failed at making time for that. I don’t think I have much planned for tomorrow night, so maybe I can get some letters off then and will be able to actually receive my own mail tomorrow too! I do need to go get the rest of the ceiling fans so they can be installed Tuesday and I’ve got a lot of things to do in the office tomorrow to catch up and to prepare for the board meeting Tuesday.

Well, that’s probably about it for tonight. I’m quite tired, so I’m going to call it bedtime from here. Good night to all!
