I love Sundays. No matter how terrible I feel before I get to church, I always feel uplifted afterwards. Part of it, I feel, is the opportunity to associate with my wonderful friends at church, who are so kind and giving. It's so nice to be with people I trust and feel their healing touch and tenderness. And of course a major part of it is the influence of the Holy Ghost, the great Comforter, which always makes me feel better. This weekend was no exception; I had been feeling lonely and worn out on Friday but after going to church I felt so much better. It reminds me of this quote from Elder Wirthlin, where he discusses the death and resurrection of Christ:
"Each of us will have our own Fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
"But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.
"No matter our desperation, no matter our grief, Sunday will come. In this life or the next, Sunday will come."
"Sunday Will Come", Joseph B. Wirthlin
To the kind people who make effort to make church a good experience for me and share their friendship, thank you.
