Special Living Lessons for Relief Society Sisters
by Laurie Mecham Johnson
PARLEY from the Relief Society President of
THE P. P. PRATT PARK SOUTH FOURTH WARD
Volume one Issue four
[p. 20]I have been asked unto let you know that Sister DeCay is still in the hospital and the doctors are taking such good care of her. Thank you for maintaining your expressions, but she does not need any visitors right now as she is being kept heavily seduced.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The most important thing to remember in life is:
“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”
Sisters, we all just need to examine our own stereotapes against each other. And if you have ever sat upon someone in judgement, you need to change your thinking around three hundred and sixty degrees.
We have not received any notice of any special visitations this week, but if you have any, tell them that we are nice having them here.
I hope that you can excuse me this week if I partake of an occasional drink. Of water. (My mouth is exceedingly dry because of the new prescription medication in which I am taking.) (And I do hope that you will not be offended.)
ECSPECIAL WOMANLY VALUES
And as we do care for our personal appearance this week, let us all bare ourselves in mind.
Our Relief Society lesson for today is, “Forever Family Living Lesson Number 20,” which is, “Womanhood: A Pretty, Great Role.” And this lesson will be given to us by Sister Dotty DeClaim. She has promised to read the lesson directly from the manual without any enhancements. Although we appreciate Sister DeClaim’s creativity, we also must respect the time in which we do meet, which is most. short.
Now, I have been asked unto include a new section especially for the Sisters, a
A WEEKLY WARNING FROM THE BRETHREN.
Sisters, as we care for our loved ones in sickness and in age, it is only natural that we wish unto meet their every desire, that we may comfort them. But when we lose someone we love so dearly, the last thing we want to do is to fulfill their last inappropriate wishes. Remember that funerals are a sad horrible time and not a time to be festive. So, Sisters, as we prepare the luncheons for the families of those who have passed beyond morality, we should be careful that the food is delicious, yet somber—And not too inviting.
And Sisters, I for one am just so very thankful to have certain Brethren thinking of all these little day to-day details in which no one else would even care about. (And his guidance is sorely needed.)
