General Conference and daily doings

No driving to church today, we watched General Conference on the BYU channel instead. We actually watched all 4 sessions and Ardmore went to the men's session at the chapel last night. I called up a couple of friends and we went to DQ for treats. Very relaxing and good company.

Yesterday during the morning session of conference Elder Niel L. Andersen was called to the Quorum of the Twelve.Elder Andersen fills the calling of Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin who passed away last December. Now we once again have 12 apostles. It is wonderful to see how the Lord works among his people.

One of my favorite conference talks was from Elder Dieter Uchtdorf. He spoke about how we must work at being faithful, have patience, and be diligent in our relationship to our Savior. He reminded us that we must feast upon the gospel by walking in the path of discipleship by accepting God's will not ours. Elder Uchtdorf, the first apostle from outside of the US, is from German. Prior to his call as an apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, he was a pilot for Lufthansa German Airlines.

After two days of focusing on the gospel I feel spiritually feed.

Our granddaughter, Leah has been having car trouble. Last week Michelle and Dave went to check out her car and Dave made some determinations on what was wrong. During the week they purchased the parts and headed back up yesterday and now Leah says her car is running like it did when she first purchased. The repair cost was nominal, $85, I wonder what would have taken place if she would have taken it to a repair shop. The list would have been long and costly probably. After Dave fixed the car, they celebrated with a barbecue. Wish I had been there to enjoy it with them.
