"May we give as the Savior gave. To give of oneself is a holy gift. We give as a remembrance of all the Savior has given." Thomas S. Monson, "The Real Joy of Christmas"Elder McOmber sets the perfect example of giving of oneself! I am so thankful that he has such a strong testimony and is willing to give of himself! The missionaries like to call him when they need help with their apartments or bikes. (fixing things)
|He is fixing a Sister's brake cable here.|
|His desk looks pretty good compared to last week(we can see it this week). I don't understand how he can find anything, but he usually does. He is talking to missionaries that need beds. They are moving from member's homes to an apartment.|
|Elder Cockburn with another "Title of Liberty"|
|Elders being silly. Elder McOmber trades ties with the missionaries. He has them sign the ones they give him( on the back). They all have 2 ties and are goofing around.|
|My office is on the other side of the wall behind Elder Van Kammen. I love listening to the hymns they play.|
"Trust in God. Hold on in His love. Know that one day the dawn will break brightly and all shadows of mortality will flee. Though we may feel we are 'like a broken vessel,' as the Psalmist says, we must remember, that vessel is in the hands of the divine potter." Jeffrey R. Holland, "Like a Broken Vessel"
The effects of chemo are still taking it's toll on me, but I am trusting God that they will wear off soon. Boy, it will make me appreciate feeling "unbroken"!! I read something this week about the saying "God doesn't give us more than we can handle" being false, He gives us challenges to turn to Him and trust in Him. It helps us grow! "God doesn't give us what we can handle, God helps us handle what we are given." I know this is true!!!!!!
