Super Saturday/Sleepy Sunday -- 2/26/06

For information on the big dinner/auction see http://www.bringjosephhome.com/

Saturday was a down day for Joseph, he has a bladder infection and a bit of a cold, but he toughed through the day's physical therapy then just rested. He had a good night Saturday night and relaxed today.

On the Home Front things were hopping! During the course of the day, Saturday, we had 30 adults and 11 youth/children at the Taggart home in Taylorsville. They were plastering, sanding and painting the garage, packing dishes, books, DVD's and sundry items from the family room, and moving boxes down to the basement storage room. It was a great time: a ward social, mission reunion and family gathering all combined. There was so much accompished it was amazing. It is a bit like an old fashioned barn-raising, and the feeling of sacrifice, service, and celebration was significant! Joseph Smith said, "The greatest temporal and spiritual blessings which always flow from faithfulness and concerted effort, never attended individual exertion or enterprise." (HC 4:272) Our family is the recipient of that faithfulness and those concerted efforts. We are greatly blessed, spiritually and temporally.
