At the real 10:10 10/10/10, my roommates, Bro. and Sis. Curtis, and I celebrated.
- This consisted of turning on the dishwasher at the exact time.
- Checking the news stations to find out if anything special was going on.
- AND a half spirited Wahoo!
But, it was fun and funny. I really am so glad that they are fantastic. We played Ticket to Ride tonight! I really do like that game.
The Sabbath is always a wonderful day. It is really my favorite. I had some wonderful experiences today.
One - I got my temple recommend to go to the temple to get my endowments.
I knew one day that this would happen, but it always seemed so far off and now its fast approaching.
I was struck by one of the temple recommend questions, which I had heard several times. The second one asks if you have a testimony of the Atonement of Christ and His role as Savior and Redeemer.
To buy back, to free from what distresses or harms, to free from capitivity by payment of ransom, to extricate from or help to overcome something detrimental, to release from blame or debt, to free from the consequences of sin, to make good,to atone.
one that saves from danger or destruction, one who brings salvation!
I just thought that was interesting that the question used two different roles of the savior :)
Also today I taught in Sunday School. I really was not
prepared like I should have been, but the Spirit was there and the lesson was good. The lesson was on taking the name of Jesus Christ when we are baptized.
In Relief Society, Amy B. ( a recent convert) gave a lesson on baptism. She was so great. I was so amazed by her lesson. She really showed what the gospel is about. I felt like her humble experiences helped so much in seeing the point. She said that when she learned certain things about the gospel that she thought "GENIUS!" I really loved what she had to say and really felt the point of the gospel. It is times like these that I really know that its true, that it matters!
There were differences in our lessons. We were speaking on the same topic, but I felt like Amy's lesson went straight to the heart. I really hope that I can better get to the heart, or better yet that I can invite the Spirit to get to the heart.
I have also been able to read some blogs about Spanish speaking Sis. Missionaries and am quite enjoying them. I really feel like life is about to get AMAZING!
Well its time for this Sweet Spirit's bed time :)
