Seminary graduation is over.
Who are these children, nay, Men and Women? I see these children every single day at school. I check their grades, their attendance. I hurry them to class. I scold them and lecture them. I laugh with them and joke around with them. Some of them I taught in Primary and some of them I taught in Nursery.
But tonight, sitting in the chapel with the Spirit radiating from them, I saw, not the giggling girls, the smart alec boys on the back row, but Sons and Daughters of God. And they touched my heart. A heart that swelled with love for these my brothers and sisters, grown into their spirit. A spirit that far surpasses anything I could have ever hoped for them. And I love them all over again.
And just a side note, as Matthew was conducting, Brandi leaned over and said- He is just like a Bishop. I hope someday he is my bishop.
2008-2009 Seminary Theme
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
