The scriptures

I love them.  I am thankful for them.

I love to read the holy scriptures,

And, ev’ry time I do,
I feel the Spirit start to grow within my heart—
A testimony that they’re true.
Search, ponder, and pray
Are the things that I must do.
The Spirit will guide, and, deep inside,
I’ll know the scriptures are true.


So, prayerfully I’ll read the scriptures
Each day my whole life through.
I’ll come to understand. I’ll heed the Lord’s command
And live as he would have me do.
Search, ponder, and pray
Are the things that I must do.
The Spirit will guide, and, deep inside,
I’ll know the scriptures are true
-“Search, Ponder and Pray,” Children’s Songbook, l09.
 
"If we are excited about our scriptures, if we love to read them,

if we pray about them, the Spirit will help us know how to do this."
-Cheryl C. Lant, Primary General President

I have been MIA for awhile. Overwhelmed with life and such. I just got caught up on you and your family. I have to tell you that I am thankful for you. And I am going to have to join your challenge a couple of weeks late, but I still have a couple of weeks until thanksgiving, and counting my blessings. :)
