I am thankful for Fast and Testimony Sunday.
I was quite teary today....fasting for some special people in my life. Every speaker and lesson really touched my heart. I have had to repair my make up job twice now. Some Sundays are like this.
I am thinking a lot about my missionary, my fabulous brother and his family, my sweet Addison and Bre, my blessings and my trials. All are close to my heart today.
I was grateful to be able to get the courage to bear my testimony today. I didn't say much...can't really remember what I said actually. I have a hard enough time just keeping it together, so I don't just stand up and cry for 10 minutes. I am not a pretty crier, so it's good to keep it together.
I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I feel my Savior's love. I want to be more like him. I want to be more loving, more forgiving, more gentle, more charitable, more.....
I know Joseph Smith was a prophet who spoke to God the father and Jesus Christ, and helped to restore the gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It is scripture written by ancient prophets for our day.
I know families are forever. I know the sealing power of the temple is real. This knowledge strengthens me and gives me perspective with my own children.
I am so grateful for the power of Christ's atonement. I know he loves me and suffered for me and I feel his love daily.
Life is sweet.
This is what I know.
I am thankful.
