Making it Up

Making it Up

We’re making it up for dinner tonight.  Rice, shredded pork, carrots, peas, cabbage, mock pineapple, onions, peppers, and a whole bunch of different sauces all for the missionaries to create their own Chinese dish.

It actually turned out quite well.  I think we’ll do this more often.

I made brownies for dessert since Elizabethe isn’t wild about cake.  You can never go wrong with brownies in this house.

Today was fast Sunday.  The Sunday School lesson, taught by my friend Matt, was a great lesson comparing the Beatitudes from Matthew 5, 3 Nephi 22 and the Inspired Version of the Bible.  Matt had some great visual aids comparing the Lord’s promises in the Beatitudes and Satan’s counterfeits.

Then, in Priesthood Meeting, John Harmer gave a great lesson on the 10 Virgins.  He explained the role of the bride, the bridegroom, the parents, and so forth.  He talked about the importance of light and why the lamps (filled with oil) were so important.  It was a great lesson and explained very well.

So, I came away from church today filled.  Even thought it was a day of fasting, I was spiritually fed and filled.  It’s like the old saying, “Seven days without God makes one weak.”
