silent night

Tuesday nights have become one of my favorites. 
We combined with the Young Men (the ratio in the ward is about 3:1) to go caroling to some families in the ward. While the young men were a bit rowdy compared to my four young women we still had a great time and the spirit was present.

All day I had felt that we should also carol at our neighbor's home but didn't know how to bring it up -- as we were finishing at the Gower's home, I mustered up the courage to tell the young women "I feel like we should go to my neighbor's house" without any hesitation Adriana said "let's do it!" The example of these youth is incredible and exactly the positive light this world needs. As we sang Mary's Lullaby to the Criste's the sweet spirit of Christlike love was undeniable and the family's appreciation was tangible. Out of the six families we caroled, the Criste family was the only one to text with gratitude for our visit. I'll forever be grateful we made that additional visit and what a confirmation that those still, small, promptings are meant to be listened to.

The budding love I have for the Youth of the Boulder ward is unlike anything I've felt before and I can't even begin to comprehend the love our Heavenly Father has for them.
