I did enjoy conference - I always do!
I enjoy insights and feelings that come to me as I listen to the brethren. I jotted down a few...
* As I exercise faith, it is the will of the Lord that must be obeyed. I have faith in Jesus Christ, not in the outcome that I desire.
* Sometimes I need to put the immediacy of my desires on hold for now. Without patience, I cannot know God!
* Sometimes it is in waiting, not receiving, that I grow the most.
* I need to be more spontaneous, particularly with spiritual matters in teaching my children.
* Love is a great thing. Lust, though maybe more understood as to why in my particular case, is keenly hurtful to my wife. I need to keep a better balance.
* There is no doubt: the resurrection is not just a nice hoped-for dream. Instead it is really real!
* Prayer works when it is in harmony with the spirit and the spirit prompts what I should ask.
* I need to apply every aspect of knowledge I have to the solution of my problems and then ask God to bless that application of my knowledge.
I was very much touched again by the Priesthood men choir. I was especially moved to tears by the rendition of "Hold to the Rod" done in a slower, more deliberate tempo. I was humbled as I was filled with the impression that though things aren't perfect, that I am often consumed with doubts and overcome by fears, that the Iron Rod is still within grasp.
I was blessed to attend Priesthood with my son. This may be the last in a long time for me to attend with him. I enjoyed watching him become enlivened with attentiveness and personal insights - much more so than in the past. It is so rewarding to see him grow, mature, and become an independent man.
I enjoyed observing and reveled in the male bonding "touch" between the First Presidency.
I was taught by the spirit that I need to be more humble, more patient, more loving, more spontaneous, more faithful.
Nothing earth-shattering. Nothing amazingly new or profound. Not surprising, but, I still find myself longing for something more from the Prophet, and yet, as I say that, I ask myself why I seek more when I don't do more with what I've already received.
