A Small Tribute To Grandmother
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Today is my day off as are all Thursdays -

You may not understand what I'm going to tell you but in our church the people do the ministry and are not paid for it - the brothers - who are over 12 and active hold the priesthood - I've been an active member for 40 years - in our church there is lot asked of active members both guys and gals -

Let me give you an example.

I am the bishops executive secretary - I set up appointments schedules and many other things. I keep communication flowing and member up to date. I'm constantly in contact with the bishopric and other members, so we keep informed. I have meetings with the members two to three times a week, every week.

Some Sundays we have 3-4 administrative meetings in day and church meetings, so I can begin at 9:30 in the morning and get out of church at 3:30 to 4 pm, all this is done for free.

Now I work a full time job at wal mart as a cashier, I work 30-40 hours a week on my home business, there is not much time left in the day or the week.

Now what happened today, and how this is all connected.

My grand mother has been ill and in a nursing home for a while - after this last accident, she was bed ridden and would not eat, basically waiting to die. My mother asked me to visit her and give her a priesthood blessing or laying on of hands, I was too busy last Sunday so I didn't make it.

But It was bothering me Wednesday and I called an other priesthood holder, so this morning - thursday me and him went to the nursing home and I anointed her head and give her a blessing I asked the lord to let her go and be in no pain and if it was his will to let her pass on quickly - which he did all of these things, my mother called me this afternoon and said she had passed away!

I expected she would and she did, thanks to God and a priesthood blessing. I just wish I would have done it Sunday or sooner - No human being should have to suffer like that, in my sinful opinion!

Now for some positive news - I'm working on google Snipe 2.0 and I set up another web page promoting good clean movies, and videos for the family.

Hopefully the affiliate program will do some good and I can make some money from it.

Here is a little primary or children's song for church.

( It reminds me to obey the spirit and it promptings etc.)

1. When my mother calls me,

Quickly I'll obey.

I want to do just what is best

Each and ev'ry day.

Quickly I'll obey.

Quickly I'll obey. (etc.)

May God bless us to know he lives,

he loves us and there will be a day of

Judgment and a resurrection!
