To Him I'll Sing

Day 219

The headache came back halfway through the day. No surprise, considering it is a usual acquaintance on Fast Sundays. But the Lord answered my prayer in keeping it at bay. Indeed, at times I barely felt it. I'm grateful for that. For I wanted to be able to focus on the Fireside as well as sing well in the choir--with a smile on my face. All occurred, and it was a nice culmination of the YSA Summit weekend. I'm excited that I will get one more chance to sing that arrangement of "The Lord is My Light" next week. It is gorgeous and amazing and full of every praise in which that song deserves to be sung.

So many gratitudes, but I guess overall I'm grateful the Lord not only has given me such wonderful opportunities (great speakers, meeting new people, friends meeting me, singing in the Tabernacle!!!) and also allows me to physically be able to take part of them.

Today's Smile: I saw the UT SLC Mission president and his wife after the fireside. They were at Temple Square for something completely different. But I went to say hello and such a smile they both had. I know. It had little to do with anything that I did. Yet it is always nice to see smiles on others because it is long-time acquaintances seeing one another again, and getting to play a little of "Ketchup." They had great smiles to hear of my brother's mission call. And to hear that is well with my family. They are such happy people, that I appreciated the smiles they gave me in turn.

Today's Something New: Not necessarily a new thing to learn so much as a new realization. Last year's study of Isaiah on my part has helped me understand it a bit on my own. Not all of it. But enough to get what is being referenced. At least so far what I've encountered in 2 Nephi. I'm looking forward to the upcoming Isaiah chapter splurge to see if I can apply my new knowledge/skills/etc to what I'm reading. It  is all in preparation to at some point in the near future delve into all of the book of Isaiah. It's such a great realization to know it is possible to have the Spirit with me and the guidance of prophets and leaders to help open my understanding.
