A Christmas thought

I LOVE this piece! Today, in three separate situations, I was reminded of how much I've been blessed and that I can give a gift to the Savior this Christmas. But what gift can I possibly give to Him? The answer is love and service. "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me." Matthew 25:40
I think it is such a wondrous thing to have a loving Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ who ask that we share our love for Them through loving and serving others.

Thanks everyone for sharing your amazing talents this past semester. I know the Lord is happy with all of the gifts you've given this season by singing and testifying of Him. Indeed, you have "done it unto [Him]". Have a very merry Christmas. See you all in January!

Fireside is STILL ON - Call time 6:00

Hey everybody!

Great job Friday night! Thanks for all of the enthusiasm and love that you showed during the concert. I'm counting our blessings that our concert wasn't last night....yikes...I hope you were all safe and cozy in your homes.

President Howell called and said the fireside is still on for tonight. Many 9 AM sacrament meetings got canceled but it was because the parking lots wouldn't be plowed by then. Pres. Howell said that the Bloomington Chapel parking lot would be first on the list and everything will be ready to go for tonight.

Please wear concert dress and be ready to begin at 6:00 PM. We're going to work on some hymns for prelude and quickly run through our pieces.
