A Week of Love

Many small acts of service and love happen every day in this part of the Lord's vineyard. Here are a few.

Some of the children in the ward have more school supplies because of last week's miracle at the temple.

A little boy loves his sister at his birthday party.

A mother loves her baby.

A missionary turns nineteen in the mission field and receives not only a birthday dinner and party, but fifteen packages from home.

I had the privilege of teaching the three-year-olds last week in Primary. Two Sunbeams play find-the-lost-lamb. One would leave the room while the other hid the lamb. As soon as the one reentered the room, the hider would immediately show the seeker where the lamb was. They giggled and laughed and had a great time at the game. Lots of love in that Primary class. Sunbeam teacher is still the best job in the church!

We have a temple fireside tomorrow night at the stake center next to the Memphis Temple. It is such a privilege to talk to all the recent converts about the temple. The temple carries with it a feeling of love. How blessed we are to have this great gift from on high. Heavenly Father allows us to be part of a loving family for time and all eternity. 

The crowning act of love in our world is the Atonement of the Savior. May we all strive to exemplify love as He did in all we do.

  1. This was such a post. I loved the pictures of all that love. I must have the best calling in the church because I am the Sunbeam teacher. I only have three precious little boys. One of them is a real character and is very challenging; but I am busy loving him.
    Oh, I love the thought of a temple fireside. The temple is my favorite place to be; I am so grateful to serve each week.
    The Savior is what it is all about.
    Blessing to you two and keep up the good works!
