After a long ,slow dinner the kiddies had some downtime and fell off to sleep!!
I finished my trio of crazy quilts and four outfits for Jess' A.Girl doll.
I think that I just needed to see that I did accomplish something today.
I want to also mention that one of my V.Teachers directed me to read a conference talk by Elder Anderson....it was a very inspiring talk...and I quote from it...
"Even with His love for all mankind, Jesus reprovingly referred to some around Him as hypocrites, fools, and workers of iniquity.He approvingly called others children of the kingdom and the light of the world.He disapprovingly referred to some as blinded and unfruitful. He commended others as pure in heart and hungering after righteousness.He lamented that some were faithless and of the world, but others He esteemed as chosen, disciples, friends. And so we each ask, “What thinks Christ of me?”
I testify that as you love Him, trust Him, believe Him, and follow Him, you will feel His love and approval. As you ask, “What thinks Christ of me?” you will know that you are His disciple; you are His friend. By His grace He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself."
There was so much more.....What does Christ think of me??? This matters so much to me, and I could list so many ways that I know I fall short of being who He wants me to be. I am so deeply thankful for the Atonement that he made to make up for my weaknesses and the powerful forgiveness that He offers.
I talked with someone recently who told me that they doubted that their was a God. I want to testify in this post that God lives and his presence comes to us each day with the rising of the sun...and the many evidences that abound in our daily lives. The scriptures testify of him, miracles happen, and the great Plan of Happiness has been restored to the earth once again.
The gospel is my strength and direction every day.
I have much to give thanks for....most especially the great family that I am apart of....the grand Durnford clan, and my own wonderful children and husband. Each of them are a big part of my heart and soul.
A closing note...my dear cousin Edith died recently. She was a grand lady and touched soooooo many lives. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and community!! Francois will never be the same. Love and miss you Edith!
I'll close with some photo memories
