Still

Last month Mike snapped this picture of Jasper being still...well, somewhat still.

This may be the first time that Jasper has ever laid on my lap in Sacrament meeting.

He helps lead songs, likes to sustain people, stands on the corner of our pew (his perch) to see what everyone behind us is doing and loves to take the Sacrament. But still he is not.

We have taught Jasper that going to church is a wonderful thing he really thinks that it is. On Saturday we always talk about how great it is that we can go to church the next day and then Jasper starts smiling and clapping for joy. We repeat this "hooray, we get to go to church" routine on Sunday morning.

If you don't like going to church, please keep it to yourself, as right now Jasper thinks it's the best part of his week.

Church really was great today. The highlight for me was Kim and Martin being confirmed members of our Church and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Mike was asked to participate and was excited to be a part of their special day. They sat behind us and I think they were glowing.

I thought it was a little ironic that the Gospel Principles Sunday School lesson was on missionary work.

Rachelle taught a great lesson about friendship. It has really made me grateful for my friends and all that they do for me. THANK YOU!

I bet that seeing Jasper so happy and content on Sunday makes those around you happier too. Love, Mom
