A day of peace and rest

It is the Sunday following the Children’s Sacrament Meeting Presentation. It is the first Sunday that I have had less on my mind for weeks so it was a great day of peace and rest, relatively speaking. After all, I still had part in Sharing Time today. 

Still, as I reflect upon this glorious Sabbath Day, my heart is filled with peace and rest. Memories of the spirit of the CSMP linger. The sermons in Sacrament Meeting by Stephen NeSmith, Jr and Bishop Wardell linger in my heart.

The following songs express my thoughts, in since prayer to a loving Heavenly Father for his tender blessing of mercy, for truly He knows my needs, precisely, and I am ready to take on a new day, a week with sincere appreciation for life itself. 

Truly, “the Lord will do wonders among you” and me.

Best Sermons for #LDSConf so far

Every conference is the best conference and all of the talks are inspiring and yet there is always something that speaks to my heart the most. What I really love is how quickly things can be posted so quickly following a conference session.

First the notes of the talks are posted almost immediately after a speaker has completed his or her sermon.

Then shortly thereafter so are the entire video’s for individual speakers.

I have mentioned in social media before, and through the years as things so rapidly have changed, my amazement because 30 years ago, while living in Germany, I had to ask family or friends in Utah to VHS conference (VHS had taken over Beta by then) and snail mail it to me because it would be months and months before getting the talks compiled in magazine form let alone being able to order one on VHS.

Then a few years later DVDs became available but we still had to wait months to get a copy, even once we were stateside but by then cable access became an option as more carriers began to add BYUtv to viewer packages.  

Moving forward, the timespan started to narrow until internet viewing became an option but the replay was not available for several weeks. (Funny how impatience in waiting to retrieve information also shortened through the years.) 

But now. Now we have almost instant access post conference. It is truly amazing to me. 

Okay, enough retro yammering and onto reveal my first watch favorites. Once conference concludes tomorrow and I go back over all of the talks online and then read them, something else will probably speak to me. But for today here is what has touched my soul:

Sharon Eubank   Sharon Eubank – Turn On Your Light

Joy D. Jones   Joy D. Jones – Value Beyond Measure 

Neill F. Marriott   Neill F. Marriott – Abiding in God and Repairing the Breach

Dieter F. Uchtdorf   Dieter F. Uchtdorf – Three Sisters

Dallin H. Oaks   Dallin H. Oaks – Saturday Morning Session

Jeffrey R. Holland   Jeffrey R.Holland – Saturday Morning Session

Russell M. Nelson   Russell M. Nelson – Saturday Afternoon Session
