Seeing miracles all over
« on: February 10, 2021, 11:02:30 am »
For some reason I have recently been filled with gratitude and some kind of awe of how God works his ways. And how sometimes I can be part of something amazing.

I recently told you about how I was able to -and it has continued - to offer support to someone very far away from me.

Bear with me, this is rambling...

At work I feel devastation. I teach kids who need so much help. There is abuse and neurological things, suicidal thoughts and all that (and they're 9) and as much as we work to get child safety services and health are services work to help those kids and families, we often face that they don't do anything or quit doing what they did - for various reasons... and we see the kids suffering.

And then these totally unrelated things give me hope - that God still is in charge.

I have this sister I have visiting taugh and now ministered, on and off, for maybe 10 years. We've met twice I think on her doorstep. Never much of any deep connection. She hasn't been in the church for decades, not for many years after her baptism and her current husband is against.

Yesterday she asked how could she have the temple work done for her deceased parents.

Sometimes really all we have to do is to be there, available and God works his miracles.

What great hope it brings.

Time for a change.  I am yungmom, but have wanted a new username for some time.

She didn't want to do anything yet with the covid things, but now finally our temple is open so we're setting a time to do it.
