I’ve been blessed to have sweet sisters here visiting me. Bottom: Heidi, Me, Kim Back: Michele, Colette. (missing are Chalice and DeLite) . Thanks to all my dear family who have come to see me. I love it! Another thing I love is rain!! I enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the children play in the rain. I loved the cooling effect and took a walk and enjoyed the beautiful sky and light on the mountains after the rain.
Jon conducted Fast and Testimony Meeting today and bore the most beautiful testimony. There are a couple things I’d like to share with all of you. He said “To borrow a backward phrase from Hollywood, our faith has been stirred, but not shaken.” Our family faith has been brought right to the surface and we all feel it so strongly. Jon also bore testimony of the three “P”s. People who have blessed our life in such a profound way. Prayer has been such a source of comfort and strength, and Priesthhood. We are grateful for the blessings of healing I have received and power of the priesthood in our daily lives. Keala also bore a wonderful testimony of faith in the Savior and His mighty miracles. …..How grateful I am to have such faith behind me!!! Feel a little bit better today than yesterday…everyday will get a bit stronger.
Here’s a scripture from the Book of Mormon that Jon shared with me from Paul Sagers. “I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.”—Alma 36:3 We do trust in God and feel His generous arm supporting us!!…… Love to all…Melanie
