An Example of Believers--"Doer's of the Word"

You know how some days you think it is your place to strengthen and lift people, but then it all turns around and YOU actually are the one who is being strengthened and lifted. Today I went visiting teaching, pondering & thinking for several days how I could make each of my gals' days better, but instead they lifted me with their strength, their desires to live and be "doer's" of the word.

At the first of the year, I was asked by the Bishop to give a talk on President Monson’s Conference talk, “To Learn, To Do, To Be.” In the talk we are counseled in the words of Paul to BE an example of believers in word, in conversation, in charity, and in spirit, in faith, in purity. And further admonished in the New Testament to know our sheep and feed them. Little did I know, that I would in a few short months become a sheep that needed feeding, tender care, and prayers. Today was another example of those who I should be sheparding, in turn sheparding me. Truly an example of believers who are "doer's of the word." I have a saying…”it is usually through the enlightened people of the Lord that he sends help to those in need.” Today, I was surprised how much I was fed and I was sheparded in word, conversation, charity, spirit, faith, and purity. I love my ladies! And thank the Lord for their goodness on this beautiful day.
