When my mom died a in 2008 she left a set of well worn and used scriptures. The six surviving children had a problem. How do you share these wonderful treasures of truth and insight? We decided that every General Conference we would pass them along to the next member of the family. It's my turn!!! YAY!!
I can not express to you my happiness, my joy, my elation at getting these. They are FULL of her hand written notes. She taught seminary for many, many years. (I think close to 19!) I know that six months will not give me enough time to go through all five books. There is just too much stuff! But there will be things I wish to share from time to time.
Today I wish to share a hand written message she wrote in the margins to D&C 6:20 "...Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love." Here is her note: "God often depends on man to answer prayers; be messengers of love and hope."
