Shabbat Shalom! Church today was wonderful. There are five violists here in the program. We all collaborated to give a musical number and it really was glorious. Those girls are so kind and unassuming and, with our combined efforts, the Lord really touched the congregation.
In Relief Society we were discussing the importance of fellowshipping and extending our hearts in friendship to those around us. There is one woman in the branch here who works in some peace organizations and she said several years ago she was eating at a dinner next to a woman from Germany. They were discussing hobbies and after this sister presented the typical answers (traveling, photography, reading, crafts, etc.) the German woman replied, “My hobby is friendship.” I found that so powerful. I want to spend enough time and effort befriending and loving people that I can call it a hobby.
