Wednesday Words

Most of you missed it. I was there and I noticed not near enough familiar faces. I am referring to last month’s Exeter Stake Relief Society Conference. I almost didn’t go myself because Saturdays are a really hard day to leave your kids at home for 5 hours. But I always hate skipping something knowing that I will be missing out. So I went and was so glad I did.

The food was out of this world. Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Whoppie Pies, and muffins served in between sessions. Every break was a surprise. I made myself sick. . . seriously. The chicken dinner that was served at lunch time was so beautiful and delicious that I made sure that I stopped by the kitchen on my way out and got the recipe to serve the next time I had company. The decorations were also so beautiful and amazing.  It was like I was on a luxury cruise for a day.

The theme for the conference was “Create” taken from Elder Uchtdorf’s talk in General Conference. .  .last year I believe.  Maybe we don’t all feel naturally that creative. I know I couldn’t decorate like the stake relief society presidency did, nor can I paint like the guest speaker whose art was displayed in the gym. But I was reminded that as daughters of God we all have it in our nature to take the world we live in and make it a better place. We can all do so much good in our home and community to set the tone for a more beautiful happy world. Some of the ideas that I wrote down in the handy journal we were supplied are these things that I need to create more of: Friendship. . .Love at home. . . Cheer. . . Empathy.

I am so grateful to be taught the true nature of who we are as women and what we can become. Are you filling the measure of your creation?
