Today I got released from being the Primary music chorister.
I'm still not speaking of it, because I will cry.
It also happened to be our Primary Program in sacrament meeting.
Primary Program is the best Sunday to come to church. Really, if you are one that only comes on a few Sundays a year, come on Primary Program day.
Okay, come every Sunday, but you know what I mean..... People. Lighten up a little.
Anyway. It was such a bittersweet day, to see the children doing so well today! They sat reverently, waiting for their turns to speak, and also watching carefully for their time to stand and sing. They were magnificent singers today, and even my little sunbeams were singing out. So sweet! I will miss them so much! It was a great way to go out of this calling.
I've needed the primary and it's music. I needed to have eternal truths reassured to me in such simple terms. I hope I can continue to carry the feelings I've gained as the chorister through my life, and not let the cares of the world weigh me down.
I know this gospel is of God. I know that through making and keeping sacred covenants, we can return to our Heavenly Father, and live with him and our families again. I know this, because I've been taught it since I was a child. I've sought to have confirmation of this in my life through prayer, and scripture study. As I read the scriptures, I know these books are true; I know these things happened and were recorded by prophets and preserved by the hand of the Lord. I know it.
I've tried to impart that to the children of the primary, and now I'll try to impart that same surety to the women of the Relief Society.
But please don't speak of it to me, unless you want to see a grown woman cry.
