Love of God

What a wonderful day!

The Sabbath truly is magnificent.

I delivered a talk in sacrament meeting and I was so blessed with clarity of mind and the spirit as I spoke. The topic was "Leading Others to Christ Through Our Good Works," mostly centering around the life of Jesus Christ and exploring how we can emulate his actions. I used a lot of quotations from Elder Uchtdorf in his address "The Love of God."
I feel God's love for me today as I reflect on all of my blessings. All of you fit into that category! Thank you, each one, for your sweet friendship. I challenge you to see if you can help someone else to feel your love for them, and God's love for them, today.

Sick Day

Still sick today. Everyone went into to Tel Aviv to spend his or her free day on the beach but I opted to stay behind. I don’t want to be caught nauseated in the middle of a city. So today will just be a chill-ax day. Maybe I’ll finally get this blog updated!

Everything I eat seems to make me sicker but Sister Emmett dropped by some Gatorade and Tums and Sister Allen brought by an electric heating pad, both of which seem to be helping a bit. Thank goodness for surrogate mothers! Also, Brother Whipple stopped by with some world music for me to listen to. All these Middle Eastern modes and quarter-tones are fascinating! I’ll tell which bands end up being my favorite tomorrow.
