Grounded For The Week


I am grounded for the week!

What brought this about?

Could it be the number of people involved?

Could it be the music?

Could it be the stories that were told?

Could it be the activities we engaged in?

Could it be the feeling that pervaded the room?

Could it be the people involved?

Could it be the type of humor used?

Could it be what those involved were doing to each other?

Could it be the pictures we were exposed to?

Could it be that this wasn’t the first time it happened?

Could it be the attitude exhibited there?

Could it be the crowd I had put myself with?

Could it be the way we were dressed?

 

Grounded – “used to describe a person who is sensible and has a good understanding of what is really important in life.”

Yep, that’s what Primary did for me!  🙂

Primary – The Great Equalizer!


Primary never ceases to amaze me.  I recently realized that Primary is the great equalizer!

As we go about our daily lives, we find that we are all different.  We have various talents, interests, strengths, opinions, biases, and thoughts.  At times it seems there is no reconciliation whatsoever, because try as we might, we can still find ourselves on opposite sides and with no idea why others don’t see things as we do!

Enter, Primary.

Something truly amazing happens when people start serving in Primary.  They still have various talents, interests, strengths, opinions, biases, and thoughts, but now they also have something in common.

They are teaching children about their Father in Heaven and His plan of happiness.

Viola’!  Instantly their various talents, interests, strengths, opinions, biases, and thoughts meld together into one – one purpose, one goal, one mind, one heart.

They are all suddenly friends, and fellow-servants with Christ, using their various talents, interests, strengths, opinions, biases, and thoughts for a higher purpose.  The outcome of this metamorphosis is astonishing!

People who used to be at odds with each other suddenly become good friends.  They now see that they are not so very different after all, in fact, they have quite a lot in common.  And they discover, perhaps to their surprise, that that which makes us the same far outweighs that which makes us different.

Thank you, Father in Heaven, for Primary – the great equalizer!  🙂
