Yesterday was a difficult one for Cole. Don't really know why, but many things brought him to tears and utter frustration (and destruction, might I add). At one point, we had all hurt his feelings and he drew this picture. I thought it was so sad (and amusing) that I had him take a pic with it. Yes, that's me next to crying Cole yelling at him. When I showed Geof. the pic, he laughed and said, "All that's missing is some fangs on you..". ha..ha, Geof. );
We did a very bad job this year of listening to General Conference. No excuses, it just didn't happen for us. Today, I decided to start from the very first talk and listened to it while working in the kitchen. SO wonderful. What a perfect talk to start out conference. Very humble, very sweet, very NEEDED for all to hear. Elder Hales quoted Nephi:
"Wherefore, do not spend money for that which is of no worth, nor your labor for that which cannot satisfy. Hearken diligently unto me, and remember the words which I have spoken; and come unto the Holy One of Israel, and feast upon that which perisheth not, neither can be corrupted, and let your soul delight in fatness". 2Nephi 9:51
What a true, pure, scripture. I love the scriptures. I go through spouts (right word?) where I love to read them and really try to study them.., and then I get lazy and read them late at night when I'm falling asleep. Yet when have that desire to read, I pray for it..and it helps. I get more excited to study and learn. It's a wonderful thing.
