General Conference Weekend

This has been a wonderful weekend, 
a time to recharge our batteries and fill our souls with truth and light.
General Conference seems to do that for me and I hope for you too!

I had a little time to bake our traditional Conference Pastry this morning 
and we wanted to share with the Elders and Sisters who live near us. 
I also wanted to share it with another family. As I prayed about who to take it to, 
one name kept coming strongly into my mind. So we drove 30 minutes this morning 
on an adventure. It was a beautiful drive and even a more beautiful visit 
with a wonderful woman who has touched my heart. 
She and her husband live on the very eastern edge of our ward boundaries 
and they come to our Book of Mormon class each week. 
Sheom was baptized 2 years ago and is a living example of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 
I'm so grateful to know her and to know of the powerful influence she has in many lives. 
She is AMAZING! 
She and her husband are very involved in missionary work and 
in taking the missionaries to the places they need to go 
such as Zone Conferences, transfers and teaching appointments. 
They give of their time freely even though it is so far for them to travel.

Their home is on the very edge of Reedy Creek. She calls it their Tree House.
It is in a gorgeous setting along the banks of this lovely river.

I love these little adventures that take us to unexpected and always beautiful places!

We made it back to our apartment just in time for 
Music and the Spoken Word and for Conference.
What a glorious morning it was!

During the break between Conference sessions we took a walk 
and discovered  a beautiful little road less traveled.

If you look carefully you can see a horse behind the fence.

Even the steer were beautiful today!

The music for Conference was exceptional. A hymn that the Tabernacle Choir sang in this afternoon's session profoundly touched my heart. I Stand All Amazed...Did anyone else feel that?

There are so many of the talks that I wanted to share. Here are a few thoughts that I really liked.
