sharing the scripture in primary...

It was my Little Buddy's turn to give the scripture in closing exercises today. I shifted all the responsiblity to my lover (feeling rather conflicted about it all), and he did a wonderful job.
He picked D&C 121: 41.
"No power of influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the power of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned."

and then he took some pictures of Little Buddy to illustrate the various virtues of influence:

persuasion....


long-suffering...



gentleness and meekness...


love unfeigned...


I think my lover did a very good job.

Very good job indeed! You guys are such a cute family. Curse the gas prices and slow economy that prevent us from getting together!

when i see cute little boys i think how i would love to have one.

(so that sounds really creepy but meant in that maternal-i only had one girl-kind of way.

you don't sound creepy, mpm... he is cute, isn't he? and quite the personality.

(I sometimes feel the same way about girls, wondering if it is in the cards for us to have one. I will occasionally feel a little melancholy at the thought that we will only have Our Little Buddy.)
