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.
I love the feeling at Christmas time. Getting ready for the 2017 Montgomery Interfaith Nativity has really put me in the Christmas music mood that I have been playing some clips and past television programs.
The MoTab always has a variety of musical talent every year. Usually they focus on classical singers one year and then more contemporary/broadway artists the next. Richard Elliot at the organ is absolutely fascinating to watch and listen to in this clip as he interacts with Count von Count from Sesame Street:
Perry Como specials were always fun to watch back in the day.
And of course Andy Williams always had a marvelous program too.
So much has happened in the last twenty-four hours. With the tragedy in Las Vegas unfolding I wanted to post something of hope, those sacred things to focus upon.
Press Forward Saints sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. (I love this hymn!)
Elder David A. Bednar – General Conference, October 2017
I love listening to Elder Bednar. He speaks so that I have to be focused on, really listening to, the words and phrasing he uses in his sermons. This sermon is no different and I remember being excited to see his talk summary posted so quickly after he spoke. However, what I truly look forward to is the entire text of this particular sermon being posted here.
What strikes me about this sermon today is that it was delivered in the Sunday Morning Session of General Conference yesterday.
