It may be hard to get ready and make it to Sacrament Meeting, but it sure is worth it! I love taking the Sacrament and feeling close to the Saviour. I love to hear the hymns and I love to be with friends and neighbors. Stephen Mongie was the High Council Speaker and gave a great talk on “Rescuing” others who have lost their way in the gospel. It really made me wonder who I could help right now….”Because I have been given much I too must give.”
Julie Woffinden walked me home from church and made me lunch of peanut butter toast and cantelope.—Always feel a small victory when I am able to eat! Fairy from Gap brought the most beautiful pink roses, and then we went to dinner at Bill and Alyson’s parent’s home to celebrate Alyson’s birthday. I wanted to get a picture up there, but of course, I forgot my camera! Their home and yard is so beautiful, and it was so fun to visit with them. I ate healthy salmon for dinner. Yahoo!
I’m nervous about all the testing coming up this week, but know I don’t need to be, so many prayers and love on my behalf. I have faith that all will be well!

I think it was my sister, DeLite who introduced me to the other verses of “How Firm a Foundation.” They are all so good it was hard to choose one, but this one works for how I feel today. “The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose, I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes; That soul, thou all hell should endeavor to shake, I’ll never, no never, I’ll never, no never, I’ll never, no never, no never forsake! I know God lives, I know the Saviour rescued us from our sins and gave us eternal life. I love the gospel and the hope and faith it provides. I pray to be worthy of God’s bountiful blessings!—Love, Melanie
