We went to the Empty Nester’s Family Home Evening, which was at Lake Mission Viejo. Our hosts asked me to sing a song. I sang a Sally De Ford song, “I Have Not Seen Yet I Believe”. It went beautifully. It was a very nice evening. The weather has cooled down. Later, my family went back home and we went through pictures of my sister’s trip to Sacramento.
I find it amazing how morals have declined over the years. Although, I have not always had such an appreciation of moral values. I often have to remind myself what moral values I should have. I am very thankful for the examples of those around me. I am thankful for the temple, where I can keep a spiritual perspective.
This is what I thought of, while I was reading in Alma 62:41, where it says, “But behold, because of the exceedingly great length of the war between the Nephites and the Lamanites many had become hardened, because of the exceedingly great length of the war; and many were softened because of their afflictions, insomuch that they did humble themselves before God, even in the depth of humility.”
I am engaged in a very long war against the adversary, who would like for me to relax my morals. I pray that I can be softened rather than hardened, humble rather than proud.
