Amazing Graces

Looking back over the last several days and weeks I am completely amazed by the tender mercies and amazing graces of our Father In Heaven. Nothing spectacular or confounding has taken place- just lots of little blessings that all added together add up to many miracles. I am beyond grateful to be able to recognize the hand of the Lord in my life.

A lot has come with my recent calling. A lot of responsibility. A lot of worry. A lot of demand of time. A lot of BLESSINGS that have made it all work out for me personally as well as for others. I am amazed at some of what goes on behind the scenes that I never was aware of before. I am also amazed at the love and care that the sisters of our ward have for one another without anyone ever asking, without any recognition or acknowledgment, just out of love.

As a result of me being called as the Relief Society President of our ward, a dear friend of mine was called to replace me as Relief Society Activities Coordinator. With our Super Saturday just around the corner, much was dropped in this dear sister's lap. I just need to say that it was absolutely the correct lap to be dropped in. She has brought much to the table in areas where I was lacking (SUCH AS ORGANIZATION SKILLS!) and has worked well with the other amazing sister on our committee. The two of them are a very dynamic duo! What a huge amount of relief has come to me as the two of them have risen to the occasion and kept the Super Saturday ball rolling with such strength!

God is Good!
