"Sundays are Special"

Poem of the Day, Sunday, November 5, 2023

"Sundays are special"

Sundays are special—
When we know the reason why.
When we recognize our worth
and our divine nature!
When we ponder and reflect
upon our many blessings.
When we experience
the sacredness of the Sacrament,
each torn piece of bread
and cup of water, symbols of His Son
who was torn and broken
and who bled from every pore
for each of us.
As we sing the hymns of Sunday
that teach us doctrine and eternal truths.
As peace and comfort distill upon us
like the dews from Heaven.
As we feel the love of our Heavenly Father
enveloping us, touching our very souls,
especially when we feel
down and despondent, lifting us
from the abyss of darkness
through His Son’s infinite Atonement
that wipes away our tears,
soothes our fears,
and teaches us to hear Him,
His soft and tender voice,
always lifting,
always calming,
always filling us
with love, compassion, and mercy.
Still, we have to obey,
do what He asks, live like He did,
love others, strive with all our might,
and minister to all—
surely a small price to pay
to live with Him
and our eternal family
