Sorry to be a little slow getting the message to you this month. Doesn’t time just seem to move faster and faster?
The Visiting Teaching message this month continues the focus on Jesus Christ’s Divine Mission and focuses on how He is our Comforter.
Because of the Atonement, the Savior knows our pain and sorrow. He knows us. He knows how to comfort us when life gets hard.
In John 14:18 it says “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”
One of the best things about being a part of the Relief Society is being the Lord’s Hands here on earth.
Elaine L. Jack said “In Visiting Teaching we reach out to each other. Hands often speak as voices can’t. A warm embrace conveys volumes. A laugh together unites us. A moment of sharing refreshes our souls. We cannot always lift the burden of one who is troubled, but we can lift her so she can bear it well.”
For my sisters this month, I wanted to give them some tokens of comfort.
The weather is turning chilly and my wood floors are cold in the mornings.
I purchased some cozy socks for my sisters and a packet of hot chocolate and included the message inside.
So simple that it made me realize that I can help others with simple actions.
I can be the Lord’s hands.
Happy Visiting Teaching!
