I was recently given an assignment for church that will require a lot of time. I was surprised, but not nervous. The day after I was asked to take on this responsibility, my thoughts were all over the place. Still I did not feel nervous. Here is what I have observed so far...Heavenly Father will bless you for doing what He asks.
Blessing #1- I had my very first experience with a non-mormon in my tiny Mormon filled town, the very next day after this assignment was given. I was caught off guard, but excited for the interaction. My new assignment made it possible to share a little about our church.
Blessing #2- My children can sometimes get the best of me! I have recently discovered that I exhibit signs of what the Dr liked to call reactive hypoglycemia (may be made up just to satisfy me, IDK) I have found that if I do not start my day with a protein rich meal, and continue to stuff my face with wise food choices all day long, I quickly get shaky, weak, sweaty, and very very irritable. It could just be my imagination, but since my church assignment was given, I feel that I have kept this under control well, and have not been irritated with my children's usual annoyances. I have found them to be very amusing, and I sit and admire them for long periods of time. I love who they are. They are so funny and sweet and happy. They make me happy.
