Loving the Savior’s Way

Well, how has everybody’s week been? Mine has been great! We have had lots of fun and lots of finding this week! We found a new investigator out in Eel Ground (1st Nation area) HE is really cool! He had met with missionaries before but, the only thing that stopped him was that he didn’t feel like he needed to be baptized again! So we are hoping to teach him the Restoration and really focus on the Restoration of the Priesthood! Well, I have given a poem by somebody at the soup kitchen and it reads

“I read of a man who stood to speak

at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on her tombstone

from the beginning… to the end.

He noted that first came her date of birth

and spoke those dates with tears,

But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash between the years.

For that dash represents all the time

That she spent alive on earth…

And now only those who loved her

Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own

The cars… the house… the cash,

what matters is how we live and love

And how we spend the dash.

So think long and hard…

Are there things you’d like to change?

For you never know how much time is left,

What can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough

To consider what’s true and real,

And Always try to understand

The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,

And show appreciation more

And love the people in our lives

Like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,

And more often wear a smile…

Remembering that this special dash

Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy’s being read

With your life’s actions to rehash

would you be proud of the things they say

About how you spent your Dash?

I truly now understand how to love the Savior’s way! I know that if we truly help those in need and to be kind and sensitive to those around us that we will live our “DASH” a lot happier and have more peace and joy! I love this poem!

Well I hope everybody had a great week!

Love,

Elder Golder
