Ready For Change
What a wonderful day! Today Allen was ordained a High Priest and set apart as a High Counsellor. His parents came up so that his dad could ordain him. My mom and my sister and her family were all here because they had a craft day at Aunt Colleen's and so they were able to come too. It was wonderful to hear the blessings and promises in his ordination and in his setting apart. He started right in on his calling today with a 6 am meeting in Airdrie, and then ward conference for the other ward in our buildling. He attended their ward's PEC meeting and then just before RS was to start one of the Stake Presidency asked if he'd come attend RS and give a 10 minute talk. Some might balk at something like that, but he's just the man for the job! Later we had everyone over for dinner. Nathan and Becky and their kids were here, along with Allen's parents, my sister, Gaylene, and her family, and my mom. We had baked potatoes with lots of fixings and cabbage salad, and apple crisp for dessert. It was a long and tiring day, but a wonderful one too.
