Happy Sunday

Dear Friends,

I hope that you are having a nice, peaceful Sabbath. I use this day to ponder the week's events, to evaluate where I am compared to where I would like to be in my various roles in Life, and to gear up for the week ahead. I love to count my blessings, for there are many, and to ask for strength to shoulder the burdens I am carrying.

How do you spend your Sundays? What makes them special for you and your family? How do you prepare for the week to come?

Have a lovely, blessed day!
Elizabeth P.S. (Stop by tomorrow for pictures of a wonderful Halloween party we atteneded!)

Hi Elizabeth...happy Sabbath to you also!!

I just read your comment you left me. How wonderful to have met 'the Sundance Kid'...he has been one of my favorite people for decades. I didn't get to meet him personally, but I DID see him on a street in Denver once when they were filming something there...that was a thrill! LOL

Now, in order to do the Unconscious Mutterings for Sundays...just take your mouse over the list of ten words on the blog site, and then, right click it to 'copy'...once you've highlighted the list, and clicked on 'copy'...you then, go to your blog window where you'd begin your post for the day, and right click anywhere in that window...then, 'paste'. After the list has been pasted in your blog...go up to the three colons behind the certain word, click you mouse there, and then type in your association to that particular word.

For instance the word would be
Texas::you'd click right after the colon here in Texas::then, type your word ---and so on.

Try it. Let me know if I can help any further. :o)

Sabbath Day

Our Sacrament meeting today was so beautiful and I feel each of us came away as better people for being there. There was so much love and an enormous feeling of peace.
Last Sunday two members of our Elders Quorum Presidency were broadsided by a motorcycle directly when leaving the church, which is located on a busy fast road.
An Elder’s Quorum counselor, Steve, who is in his early 20's was the driver of the car and at the last minute decided to go a different direction to take the E.Q. President home. The 26 year motorcyclist passed away Tuesday morning.
Steve took a few moments at the beginning of our meeting to bear his sweet humble testimony of how much the
Savior loves each of us and is so aware of what is going on in each of our lives. He spoke of the compassion that has been rendered to him and his sweet wife this week as they have felt the sweet mercies of the Lord.

He asked all of us to pray for the family of this young man and also to think of the young man who died. The young man who died had been raised as a member of our church but had chosen another path in life and turned away from the Lord and his family.
Steve quoted the last verse of a song, ‘I Believe in Christ’ we sing in our church.

I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: "Ye shall obtain."

I believe in Christ; so come what may,
with him I’ll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
to rule among the sons of men.

We were truly spiritually fed by the spirit and testimony of this incredibly humble and strong young man. As he spoke and we felt pure love radiating from him and humility of what had happened this past week.
I hope all of you feel the love of our Savior in your life this Sabbath Day.

Hope this wasn't too long:)
