The General Relief Society Meeting was great. I loved being there with my daughters. I loved the words spoken and music shared. It was great.
I am thankful I have made covenants with my Heavenly Father. I am thankful for the blessing I receive because of the covenants I've made. I'm thankful that I can teach my daughters and sons about covenants and their duty as children of God to make and keep covenants.
I know that I'm not perfect. I know that I am a sinner. I fail...a lot. I even fail at the same things over and over. You would think I would learn the first time. But no, it takes me a few times (or more) to get it. I'm still a covenant maker and keeper. Even when I fall and fail and makes mistakes I still can keep my covenants. This is because I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and Redeemer. I use the Atonement in my life. I repent often. I acknowledge God's will and hand in my life. I endure and never give up. Sometimes I may want to give up. Sometimes my hope fades a little. Those are the times when I try a little harder to be a little better. I know what I need to do to improve. And as much as I don't want to do some of those things; I know there are great blessings waiting for me when I do. I know it, so I must do it!
