Sabbath Day

I love Bear. He always keeps things surprising-ful. One of his co-workers is coming back to church, but said that he didn't have any church clothes. So Bear gave him a suit. Bear has 2 suits. And he wasn't going to say anything about it but I noticed. Now, it was an older, not as nice suit that used to be his dad's. I'm very proud of him.

And Bear gave a talk in sacrament today. He forgot until he woke up. And I was asked to substitute for Sunday School next week. I love giving talks so I said yes. But then I realized that a lesson is very different from a talk. I'm afraid there won't be very many people because it will be a holiday weekend and so less comments. I'll be okay though.

I learn so much at church each week. Today I was really inspired to fulfill my callings and honor the Sabbath Day. There was a long debate in Relief Society today about what it okay to do on the Sabbath. There were so many different opinions but it the end it came down to it's what you feel is right. I also found a quote this past week from Mark E. Petersen: "Our observance of the Sabbath is an idication of the depth of our conversion..." Wow. I don't know about you, but that really inspires me.

That is a topic of heated discussion. We don't watch tv on sundays, but many people don't see a problem with that. My idea of keeping the sabbath is to make it a different day then all the rest. Just yesterday we decided to also not have the computer on.
I think our depth of conversion applies to many things. I see woman at church wearing very revealing clothes but I really don't think they think of it as revealing. We see and think what we want to see and think.
You probably are rolling your eyes at my blab blab blab. You may understand one day soon how staying home and talking to little ones all day can really make you talk a person's ear off when they give you a chance.
