I recently came across a talk given by Elder David A. Bednar "The Tender Mercies of the Lord". This is an amazing talk. I wanted to included my "favorite" part of the talk, but I honestly couldn't pick one part. In this talk Elder Bednar tells us what a "tender mercy" is and that everyone has an opportunity to receive them. He also explains that not everyone will recognize it as a tender mercy, but if we are faithful we will be able to recognize them for what they are worth and they will be able to touch our lives.
While Olivia has been napping I have been reflecting on the my tender mercies...A phone call from a loving parent to tell me that I am loved just when I need to hear those words, a priesthood blessing and hug from a worthy husband, a kiss and a smile from a beautiful daughter, or a kind word from a friend. I feel so very blessed to know that my Heavenly Father is aware of me and that He has a hand in my life.
On a lighter note, here are some pictures of one of my favorite tender mercies...
