Have I mentioned lately just how much I love and APPRECIATE my husband? It is not always easy for me to notice during these busy years of study, but our relationship means everything to him. I needed some time with him today to just visit. So we went for a little walk. Well, our half hour walk turned into an hour plus conversation when we got home. We had time to reflect on Us: what our goals are, what we are both doing to be good people/companions, what we hope to accomplish individually and as a couple, and whatever else came up. He sacrificed a lot of his study time to be with me. I know that giving up study time was not exactly easy and that this will have put an extra burden on him, but knowing that he did it because he loves me is almost more than I can stand. :) Thank you, Honey! I love you so!

I have an 80-years-young female black friend who attends the same church as I do. Her claim to fame is her "big mouth". She knows it can get her in trouble, but it often just makes people laugh. Today she shared a real gem.
The topic in Gospel Principles was "Faith in Jesus Christ". The teacher asked her to share her story of faith when she joined the church. She said that she's a people-watcher and for her, after observing the love and friendship of people at church, she knew she was in the right place. She saw the love of Jesus Christ in the members. "Everyone just be cons'ly lovin' on every one else. There's so much love! It's like a big love orgy up in here!"
Um....I don't know that that's the answer the teacher was looking for, but I'm sure the Lord had just as good a good laugh as the rest of us. It was said in innocence after all. Ha ha ha!
