I somehow have become one day behind! Instead of trying to catch up and post two days at once, I am going to just continue where we are. I have still not completely felt 100%, although today I had more energy than I knew what to do with. My husband left for Utah at 4:30 am and then I just got up for the day. I made bread, did laundry, took a shower, did the dishes, packed lunches….. all before 6:30 am!! If only I could get myself to go to bed early I would love to start off my days like that!
Today's reading is Helaman 7-9. I hope you are all still enjoying reading the Book of Mormon with me. I want to thank you for all the e-mails you have sent me so far, sharing your favorite scriptures and personal stories. I love hearing them! I know that the scriptures can change lives as my life has been changed forever! Please continue to send me messages as they brighten my days.
Here is a scripture that has great meaning found in verse 15 of chapter 8…
"And as many as should look upon that serpent should live, even so as many as should look upon the Son of God with faith, having a contrite spirit, might live, even unto that life which is eternal."
I'm going to head to bed now. Getting 5 kids to bed by myself takes a little more energy than I have tonight after a looooong day. Love to you all!
