After inviting my son Blake to watch each session of conference with us He,
finally stumbled into the family room looking for some relief from back pain
brought on from his turn with the flu, mine was the day before and I knew his
pain. Understand Blake has refused to be apart of the church for the past 3
years and we are lucky if we can get him to come to family prayer. Thankfully
his back was screaming in pain and I was able to provide relief with a back rub
and adjustment to his spine, neck and hips. I got him an ice pack and he lay on
the floor in what I considered perfect reverence and listened to 1 conference
address, Elder Foster's talk. I knew the Lord's hand was involved and that thru
the love of his Mother Jana (currently visiting our children in AZ) Blake would
return. Thank you Bro. Foster for your inspired and perfect example of the power
of the "HOOD" in this case Motherhood.
Elder Foster is a great man and was a great mission president.
I LOVED Elder Foster's talk! He was the greatest mission president too!
I also loved his talk-it brought me to tears. He made a beautiful case for the
idea that mother love is unique and powerful here on earth.However, it
made my heart ache when he made the comment that it was closer to God's love
than any other love. There is a Mother God who has that special love for us and
we need it just as much as the Father love that we talk about and appreciate so
much. Mother love is unique and powerful and it doesn't end here on earth. We
need to recognize it and honor it. Maybe it would make a difference to those
lost souls who are looking for that kind of love. I love and appreciate his
talk and understand his inability to talk about our great Mother, but it gives
me a heart ache. WE NEED HER!
