Anyway, I had a good day at church today. The Gospel Doctrine Lesson was on the atonement of the Savior. I really appreciated the lesson (although it wasn't as good as the one my mom gave nearly four years ago), because it allowed the Spirit to testify to me of Christ's atonement and of his being our Savior. I felt it very strongly. This experience closely echoes one that I had four years ago when I was in Vegas visiting my family. The circumstances were very similar to today's. I was about 7 months pregnant and I had been praying that Heavenly Father would bless me with a stronger testimony of and relationship with the Savior. I attended my mom's gospel doctrine class, during which she covered the last week of the Savior's life. That day, the Spirit witnessed to me of the truthfulness of the things my mom had taught in a very powerful and unforgettable way. As I have continued to pray for a stronger testimony of and relationship with the Savior, I have had the scripture in D&C come to my mind many times when the Lord (or Heavenly Father--I'm not sure who was talking) asks ...hmmm...who was it?...I think it was one of the three witnesses...something like "Do you not remember the time when I spoke peace to your soul?" (reminding him of revelation he had previously received)...Anyway... good day...
On a lighter note, I thought it was kinda fun that Nicole Cave and Tara Maxfield kinda put out requests for people to write something new. I think it would be kinda fun if at times we (meaning anyone reading this) all responded to some particular question or something... My question tonight is this: Does anyone have a good joke?
Here's one to start us out. (Thanks, Mom.) I hope it's not so old that all of you have already heard it.
What do you call it when a bomb goes off in a kitchen in France?
