Yesterday was the Relief Society Broadcast for the LDS church and it was AMAZING! The words that were spoken that night were exactly what my soul needed to hear!
The thing that touched my heart the most was Pres. Uchdorf's talk this everything part of it was amazing but these 2 things touched me the most
....Forget not to be happy now. Recalling the children's story “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” President Uchtdorf said people were looking for a golden ticket in a candy bar. Unfortunately, the candy bar itself became an utter disappointment if it did not contain a gold ticket, he explained.
"So many people today are waiting for their own golden ticket — the ticket that they believe holds the key to the happiness they have always dreamed about. For some, the golden ticket may be a perfect marriage; for others, a magazine-cover home; or perhaps, freedom from stress and worry. There is nothing wrong with righteous yearnings."
The problem, he added, comes when a person puts their happiness on hold as they wait for some future event — or gold ticket — to appear.
"The happiest people I know are not those who find their golden ticket; they are those who, while in the pursuit of worthy goals, discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments." ...
..."Forget not that the Lord loves you. President Uchtdorf said as a child, when he looked at little forget-me-nots, he sometimes felt like that flower — small and insignificant. "I wondered if I would be forgotten by my family or by my Heavenly Father."
To the worldwide audience of Relief Society sisters, President Uchtdorf added, "You are not forgotten, sister, wherever you are and whatever the circumstances
"No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love. …
"The love of God and the power of the restored gospel are redemptive and saving. If you will only allow His divine love into your life, it can dress any wound, heal any hurt, and soften any sorrow. "My dear Relief Society sisters, you are closer to heaven that you suppose. You are destined for more than you can possibly imagine. Continue to increase in faith and personal righteousness. Accept the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as your way of life. Cherish the gift of activity in this great and true Church. Treasure the gift of service in the blessed organization of Relief Society. Continue to strengthen homes and families. Continue to seek out and help others who need your and the Lord's help."
For me My golden Ticket is having a Baby as I was taking notes I put this as my Golden Ticket and how I needed to enjoy every moment I have now. Be happy for what I do Have and not dwell on what I don't. Its okay to have these righteous desires but don't forget about the blessing I have right in front of me....AND then the Last forget not that the Lord Loves you. Often times I have thought that maybe he has forgotten about me..in seeing so many other women having babies and getting pregnant and having another baby I often have wondered If he had forgotten about little ol' me Brittany McGee...and last night answered my question. I am not forgotten. and was reasured that Heavenly Father Loves me and Knows me and who I am. It was a beautiful Broadcast.
