Miracle Monday

Today's miracle is again one of the heart.

My calling is in primary (in the LDS church, you receive a "calling" -- an area that you are asked to serve in for whatever period they see fit).  Frankly, I'm not all that jazzed.  I have 3 small children, and I'm constantly with them and then I go to church and WOW I get to be with other people's kids.  Yay.  It just makes me tired.  I'm with the 4 year olds.  I'm just having a hard time with it as I am no longer meeting people, or having a moment to breathe on Sundays.  It's all kids.  All the time.

I'm wondering what on earth this could be for me.  Why on earth would they give me this calling.

And as I sat yesterday during the primary program, God smacked me over the head and reminded me that life isn't all about me.  Maybe this calling is for them.  It's no secret that I'm good with learning the skills you need to go to school.  These kids are just starting kindergarten.  Maybe they need something from ME.  Already they think they're all readers because they can all read I and A and a few other short words. :)

Anyway, it's something I needed.  Life isn't about me.  It's been about me for a few months, but it's time to share myself.  Time to be the giver.

Also, does anyone remember this day that I had my very own theme song.  Funky coincidence that I had to give the fourth article of faith yesterday in the primary program?  I doubt it.  I'd call it a miracle.  God bringing me full circle.  That if I just have faith, things WILL turn out.

This was all good, because I had a really hard weekend.  Just missed my peeps so much and the fun things we used to do after women's conference.  Sometimes I think this move is harder then I ever thought it would be... at least emotionally. :)

Happy Monday everyone, hope you have some miracles in your own life!

  1. I hear you about Primary being tough that way. But I also love what you say about needing to serve and give. I'm trying to remember that, too.

  2. Since I have been married, the only callings I have had have been either choir director or in a Primary Presidency, or both. (Oh, I lie. When I was teaching high school, I also had those same kids in Sunday School) I am now the nursery leader after being Primary Prez. I totally hear ya on getting tired of being with your kids all the time and then having to deal with everyone else's kids too! Sometimes I wonder on the inspiration part of giving callings. Was the bishopric really inspired, or did it just seem to make sense?
    Anyway, I'm glad that you had an 'aha' moment and could feel like you were in the right spot! Keep it up!
