Testimony

I love the sabbath. It is a time to attend the meetings that mean the world to me. I look forward to the spirit I feel when I enter the doors of the church building, and chapel. I have to say for this I am blessed, and grateful. I will admit that there was a time in my life that I didn't quite feel this way. I am so glad that, that time came, and went. If there is something that came of that time, it is that I learned! Somethings are harder to learn than others. Those years are many behind me. I truly believe that there was a reason for this trying time in my life.

Today I woke up real teary eyed. This isn't really like me at all. I usually wake up happy! I kept wondering what in the world! Later in the day my heart started racing just a little. I then realized it was the spirit telling me to bare my testimony today. I though...not today! I truly do enjoy sharing my testimony, but do admit it makes my heart pitter pat. It felt so good to stand before the people that teach me, that teach my children, that have taught my children, and the sweet girls that I teach. I looked down into their faces, and felt like, this is just right were I need to be. Up there standing, and baring my heart. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my Heavenly Father. I have been blessed upon measure. My heart is full today. I am sharing this on my blog mainly because this is my documentation of my life. I hope that when my children look back at this someday, this will be a gentle reminder of the love I have of the gospel. I also wanted to share my testimony to those who have ever wondered a little more about my beliefs, and why I I try daily to hold onto what I believe is true. I hope everyone had a wonderful sabbath. Michelle

Michelle, I'm so glad you shared your testimony. It was very sweet and inspiring. I'm at the level you were first at, not really relishing the idea of being there. I look forward to where you're at and am glad you wrote about that journey. Thank you

What a sweet testimony, thank you for sharing it. It will be nice to have it recorded here. I love the gospel too and I'm so grateful for our knowledge of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for us. I'm so thankful that we have the fullness of His gospel in the Church. It gets me through so many hard times. We are truly blessed.

Michelle, I'm so glad you felt inspired to share this with us. I love that your daugther commented too. You guys have such a sweet family. Ever since we started our fertility treatments they've taken place on the last three fast sundays. I love that feeling when you follow the promptings and heart and bear a testimony. Hopefully soon, I'll be there on a fast sunday! You're awesome Michelle!
