After prayer, Woolfs, Gallups, Elder Goodsell, Sister Bly, Grandma Woolf, and I filled out of town orders from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and I got the opportunity to train Elder Goodsell in how to fill an out of town order; I enjoy every opportunity I get to teach somebody else how to do something.
At noon, all the people working, volunteering, or serving missions in the LDS Welfare Complex gathered at the New Dynasty restaurant for a devotional and Christmas lunch.
The devotional was on gratitude and how it is a feeling of appreciation for that which we have received; he who receives all things will be made glorious. We can be thankful and express gratitude to God and we should especially grateful to Christ and all He did. Gratitude brings awareness to effort and grateful awareness heightens our sensitivity to divine direction...mercies and blessings come in different forms...thou shalt be thankful to the Lord for all things, even trials, as there are hidden blessings... each day given is a gift...
From 1 to 4 p.m., I filled the cottage cheese and sour cream portions of the orders while others took care of the meat, milk, and bread portions. I then helped others stock shelves.
