We are very glad to be home.
We got home in time for the usual Sunday night dinner with Nathan’s parents, and it was their farewell also as we prepare to leave.
We listened to the Christmas devotional on the way to Siloam this morning, since something has gone weirdly wrong every time we have tried for a month to watch or listen to it! I am so glad we persevered. It was worth it!
On the way home, we listened to the Young Adult fireside that the Nelsons just did. It blew me away! Both talks! It’s really my new favorite, and it’s from the guy who is President of the Quorum of the Twelve. That’s huge! Their talks are super juicy, so you should definitely find them and read them and memorize them and listen to them again and again.
Like in General Conference, he talked about praying what to do and not do, and of all things do you know what I got? To clean out my drawers so Nathan has more space. And so I did! How simple is that?!
In the meantime, the kids are all asleep, which leaves the house gloriously quiet, which means Nathan and I can do our own couple study and journaling before crashing to some well-earned sleep.
Tomorrow: Nathan takes the boys and Anber to my grandad’s funeral, and I take the baby and Mary to their pre-op appointments and testings in Tulsa.
And then the week will fly by, and we will be on our way to Ohio!
