the great commandment

In October 2007, Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin gave a talk entitled "The Great Commandment".

I don't remember much about that talk. But the talked changed my life.
Watch the video of it. You'll see what I mean.

Joseph B. Wirthlin stood shaking at the pulpit delivering the words of God. At times it looked as though his frail body was going to collapse right there on live tv.

Nearing the end of his talk he grew increasingly weak. Elder Russell M. Nelson, stood behind him and held him up for the entire rest of his talk. Talk about charity- the pure love of Christ. It brings tears to my eyes.

The words I remember most from that talk was the quivering "thank you" Elder Wirthlin said to his brother in service, his brother in Christ after he successfully finished his talk.

Watch it. It will send warm chills up your spine.

May we ALL have a moment of selfless service in the upcoming day, week, month.

halloween sneak peek

This weekend Parker and Carter are going "trick or treating" with Jonathon, Grandma, and PaPa Miller at Jellystone. Parker can HARDLY contain his excitement when it comes to the yogi bear wagon rides. We went today and got their costumes. They LOVE them. They were SO excited. I asked Parker what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said Woody! I thought for sure it would change. But it has stayed Woody for a month. He was jumping up and down today when we found a woody AND buzz costume in their sizes. Carter is excited too. He lovingly says "buzz! buzz!".

Its so great seeing the joy on your children's faces..... It makes life worth living.
