Today during Sacrament they did something really interesting. Typically the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of the month. Some members of congregation are assign to speak in Sacrament on a certain topic assigned by a member of the bishopric. On the first Sunday those in the congregation if they choose can get up and bear their testimony of Christ, Church, Temples, ect. However, this Sunday was a little different then ones in the past.
     They started the service by talking about Music and how it's important to have them. A member of the bishopric stated his favorite song and the proceed to say that's how we would continue with our service today. Members of the congregation if they wanted could get up and share theirs, after you did that then the ward would sing the first verse of that song. It was a really neat experience to hear what others favorite hymn's were and why. I didn't get a chance to say my favorite song, but a lot of the ones were mention that I do dearly love. So tonight's blog I feel I should share some of my favorites. Below are some of my favorites in no particular order.

There Is Sunshine in My Soul Today
This song makes me happy. It reminds me to be happy. When I was little my family and even teachers said I was like a ray of Sunshine. This song reminds me of that. Below are the first two verse of the song.  The second verse is one of my favorites because I can't sing, but the Lord knows it and he can't hear me and it still makes Him happy.
 V.1 There is sunshine in my soul today,
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my light

Oh, there’s sunshine, blessed sunshine
When the peaceful happy moments roll.
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in the soul.

V,2 There is music in my soul today,
A carol to my King,
And Jesus listening can hear
The songs I cannot sing.

Because I have been Given Much
This was one of my grandmother, Meme's Favorite songs. She stated that because it made her happy. It also reminds me that the Lord has given us a lot and because of that we must given. 
V.1 Because I have been given Much I too  must give
Because of thy great bounty Lord each day I live
My glowing Fire My loaf of Bread,  My roof's safe shelter over head
Who has the need of help from me.

If you could hie to Kolob
The first time I ever heard this song I was in Logan, Utah with Brittany. It was the summer of 2007.  The chorister in that sacrament service stated that we would sing all 5 verses of the song. I didn't understand why but by then end of the song I was touch by the spirit. And reminded that life truely goes on after we die. That summer was a very hard time for me. A few months back I lost a very special friend Derek. The song gave me comfort to my trouble soul. This past week I was remind of this song again; when I found out my sister from Utah, Catie and Josh lost their little baby.He was a stillborn baby. It made me very sad to hear what happened, but also joyful because Families are forever and that the Lord has a plan. 
V.1.  If you could hie to Kolob
In the twinkling of an eye,
And then continue onward
With that same speed to fly,
Do you think that you could ever,
Through all eternity,

Find out the generation
Where Gods began to be

V. 3 The works of God continue,
And worlds and lives abound;
Improvement and progression
Have one eternal round.
There is no end to matter;
There is no end to space;
There is no end to spirit;
There is no end to race.

 V.5There is no end to glory;
There is no end to love;
There is no end to being;
There is no death above.
There is no end to glory;
There is no end to love;
There is no end to being;

There is no death above 

I know that my Redeemer Lives
I remember when I first learn this song. It was to sign language for girls camp. When ever I get scared I sometimes will sing this song. It brings calmness to my soul. 

V.1 I know that my Redeemer lives.
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead.
He lives, my ever-living Head.
He lives to bless me with his love.
He lives to plead for me above.
He lives my hungry soul to feed.
He lives to bless in time of need.

There are others that a special to me for different reasons. But the ones above are very special to me and I wanted to share them with you.

Sunday School with the 5 and 6 Year Olds

Teaching the 5 and 6 years old's is such a blessing. They end up teaching me more than I could ever know. Today at then end of class they were eating their snack and talking amongest them and one of the kids accidently step on another kid..The kid who got step on Miles, started crying he thought it was on purpose. The kid who did the stepping, Preston didn't mean to do it. When Miles started to cry, Preston started to cry because he felt bad. Within 5 or 6 mins they had stop crying. And by then the parents had start to come to pick up the kiddos. I told both Preston and Miles parent's what happen. Preston's dad stated that he has a tender spirit. I have to agree. He has a very wise spirit and a wise kids.

I love teaching my primary kids, I will be sad when I get new kids, I just don't want to let mine go.
