Sunday Musings of the Spirit: Visiting Teaching Message November 2012

I loved Elder M. Russell Ballard's talk from General Conference earlier this month, and knew that I wanted to share part of it with the sisters I visit teach. 

Elder Ballard taught us about honeybees, and how each bee makes about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey during its lifetime.  That is not very much!  When that little drop of honey is joined with the honey from the other bees, however, the results are significant.  We can be like the bees.

The handout printed on a 4x6 sheet of photo paper, but trimmed down to about 2x3.  I attached it to a little jar of honey.  I found the empty containers in 4-packs at Walmart in the kitchen section, and I just filled them with honey I had at home.  The cute beehive graphic came from the graphics fairy.


 
 




If you have time, you might want to watch this video of Elder Ballard's address.  While I enjoy reading the General Conference talks, being able to see and hear the delivery seems to add something to the message. 




Thanks for small acts of service.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
