February 2017 Visiting Teaching Message

This month's visiting teaching message is all about love--not about valentines and chocolates, but about God's love.  Jesus Christ provided a perfect atonement and opened the door for us to return to our Heavenly Father again. We also have hope through his sacrifice that all things will eventually be made right, and that our sorrows will turn to joy.  

I was impressed with the scriptural phrase in Isaiah 49:16 that says, ". . . I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands. . ."  I decided to add that scripture to a photo of the hand on a Christus statueJust as we are "to retain the name [of Jesus Christ] written always in [our] hearts (Mosiah 5:12), Jesus remembers each one of us, individually.  Our names are written upon His hands and in His heart. 


(I have some cute Valentine's Day pens that I plan on giving along with this handout, since the idea of writing goes along well with the message.)
