It made me realize how much I'm not doing my best to be a servant and a tool for the Lord. I could do better. I loved hearing how he would visit in the hospital to people in his congregation and bless their lives in small ways. Or bring in a turkey dinner to a family in need. Or write up a will for a little boy dying in the hospital so he could give away all his worldly goods to his friends.
|Ward members who were served by Bishop Mitt Romney...|
|How hard am I trying to BE LIKE HIM? I could do much better.|
|My choir did not have costumes, just lots of different faces.|
|I loved the children in Primary and I still do.|
|I want to improve in my goal to serve more valiantly.|
|We can all improve line upon line, and grow in gospel knowledge, recommit to a life of service and in being honest in all our dealings, my own favorite weakness.|
I remember how hard it was some Fridays to serve as a temple ordinance worker while I was working fulltime. I did it for 3 1/2 years. How did I do that? Well, just serving once a week is like eating the elephant one bite at a time. I just got myself there. Sometimes I had a run in my white nylons. Sometimes My dress was not as ironed as it should have been. But I would just get myself there, and the rest took care of itself. It was a weekly goal. And looking back, I accompished 3 1/2 years of temple service. Who would have thought.
Let's rededicate ourselves to being more of a giver, more of a server, more used in the kingdom. Let's be more like Mitt.
