Great Experience

I just move into this Ward and I introduce myself to the Bishop and the next thing I know, I've been assigned to give a talk. So today I gave a talk. The topic surprised me when asked, and it's the first time I've ever been asked to share my conversion story with the congregation, but it's given me the opportunity to reflect on the events that lead to my conversion.

Of course I prayed alot that I could deliver my talk with a calm heart, and my prayer was answered. Now of course I know my story by heart but I had to write some of it out so I wouldn't forget some details. It was a great experience for me.

My Ward is made up mostly seniors and young families. I'm so glad there are so many members my age and see things the way I do. I guess we have all gone through similar experiences which give us some wisdom and a better understanding of things. I love my Bishop already, he looks like a General Authority and he has a wonderful sense of humor. I think I'm gonna like my Ward, everyone is so friendly and kind.

I'm looking forward to this Tuesday, Theresa and I are going to the Bishop's Storehouse and do some service there, I think it'll be fun.

Great Experience

New Beginnings

So here I am starting a BLOG like my girls have suggested I do. Every now and then I might write something I've thought about or might be doing that interests me and we'll see how it comes out.

For today, I'm just trying to get this thing going, butIi have to go get my allergy shot now so I'll come back.

New Beginnings

So, this is surely a new beginnings for me. My Lisa and Theresa have been after me to start this thing called a BLOG. I was thinking I don't have all these kids to write about and my girls do enough of that anyway. So maybe I can just jot downv now and again some of the things I'm doing to keep me busy in my life. Of course I'm not a busy as my girls but then I don't move about as quickly as they do.

The one thing I've been thinking about lately is how Theresa and her busy life and she still has time for me. I really appreciate her efforts to keep our relationship going strong. She includes me in alot of things, and I'm happy to be there with her.

Lisa is another one who I am so grateful to have her as a daughter. We sora think alike and she's so easy to talk to. She doesn't critizise everything i say, cause sometimes things I say don't come out right and she has that knowing thing that she doesn't come down on me. We're buds
