What Calling?!

... Is exactly what Mr. Man and I are asking ourselves lately. One of the Bishop's counselors came by to give our daughter, L-Infinity, a new calling- Laurel's 1st Counselor. Then when that was done, I was told that the Bishopric has been thinking about our family and several callings that we can serve in, but which one, only Heavenly Father knows...

Well... at least for Mr. Man, they have him for 3 months guaranteed. After that, it depends on what Southwest Airlines will afford him for new days off. As for me, I really hope that they don't find anything new until almost Thanksgiving; I'll be done with this semester by then and I can honestly say that I'll have more mind power and devotion for whatever lies ahead. Whatever the callings may be, I know that it's been impressed to our leaders that my husband and I can measure up to our potential to fulfill the necessary tasks of the calling. What a humbling experience to have one of our leaders take the time to grace our home with his sweet spirit doing the Lord's errands...

I also do have the last General Conference to be grateful for... All of the speakers, especially the First Presidency, spoke of looking inwards to bring out the best person to emulate Christ in efforts of service and practice of our religion. What a marvelous and timely counsel to all of today's souls who are quick to be trapped by modern conveniences and technologically advanced toys. Yesterday, as I kneaded the dough to make french breads, I couldn't be more grateful for my two hands, willing to be dirtied to bring forth food to the table. I was humbled by the fact that when our Savior Jesus Christ was on the earth, he didn't choose to reveal His full magnificence that His two hands can bestow; that He trusted us enough to find our way back to Him and His father's kingdom.

I testify of His divinity and unconditional love for all of us. Eternal life and happiness, His constant promise if we but to have willing hearts and opened eyes to be more like Him... In his name, I leave these thoughts with you, Amen.
