Hope..

Today I gave my first "official" lesson as a RS instructor.. I think it went pretty well!
It was about Dieter F. Uchtdorf's October conference talk (featured in the November Ensign), "The Infinite Power of Hope"..
The end of his message, touched me:

"The Lord has given us a reassuring message of hope: “Fear not, little flock.” God will wait with “open arms to receive” those who give away their sins and continue in faith, hope, and charity.

And to all who suffer—to all who feel discouraged, worried, or lonely—I say with love and deep concern for you, never give in.

Never surrender.

Never allow despair to overcome your spirit.

Embrace and rely upon the Hope of Israel, for the love of the Son of God pierces all darkness, softens all sorrow, and gladdens every heart."

I so love Sundays.. the refreshing lessons, the spiritual re-charge I get.. the re-focusing. I so loved Sunday School today. I love Gospel Principles in the first place, love the discussion format, love the people in the class.. love the teachers. Jesse (or should I say Brother Hansen..) did such a good job presenting the lesson today, I really enjoyed it! He reminds me of my Mer-Bear.. quiet, soft-spoken, but has so much good to say and share!

I have to teach RS too! I think it is kindof hard! I taught it once before now, and I really like it, it is just kindof hard sometimes! Do you do vinyl lettering? Let me know if you do!
