15 ¶So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
My thoughts this morning go to Hanna. It;s been 13 years today. I was checking my email and came across this quote from Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley, which says it all.
"The eternal nature of man has been revealed. We are sons and
daughters of God. God is the Father of our spirits. We lived before we came
here. We had personality. We were born into this life under a divine plan. We
are here to test our worthiness, acting in the agency which God has given to
us. When we die we shall go on living" ("The Great Things Which God
Has Revealed," Ensign,
During Conference this past weekend, we were chanllenged to Ponderize a Scripture a week by Elder Durrant. I really want to do this, so here's my scripture for the week of Oct 5.
My "Ponderize" scripture for the week: 2 Nephi 4:15
these I write the things of my soul, and many of the scriptures which
are engraven upon the plates of brass. For my soul delighteth in the
scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the
learning and the profit of my children."
What this was saying to me, is that I don't journal or blog enough of my spiritual feelings, and I really need to start. This is the scripture he used and I want to make it my own. I really felt the spirit so strongly during Conference. When they announced the new members of the Quorum of 12 Apostles, I felt good about the men called to fill the open positions from the deaths of Boyd, K. Packer, L. Tom Perry, and Richard G. Scott. This many at once hasn't happened since 1908, so it was pretty momentous. I even took the day off work, so I could watch and listen. I know these men are called of God to be the new Apostles!
