Today at church we sang "In Our Lovely Deseret," which I think is just a hilarious hymn. You can read the lyrics here. I think our chorister likes it, because today was the second time we've sung it in a couple months (and we've missed quite a few weeks lately). Other than trying not to giggle while singing it, I like to nudge Christian and Richard during the hymn and sing the "and they eat but little meat" part over and over to them. I think it's hilarious. They roll their eyes at me. I think the "eat meat sparingly" concept goes right over their heads.
On a more spiritual note, the hymn we sang before the blessing of the sacrament stood out to me as well. I can't remember which hymn it was, but it talked about how we will be judged on the extent to which we forgive others. This really stood out to me. I try hard to give others the benefit of the doubt. I try to see people's point of view. But I'm not perfect. I still get annoyed. I still get offended. But I try hard to forgive others no matter what. I'm sure I annoy people and offend people, but I know I don't do it on purpose. I would hope people would give me the benefit of the doubt and forgive me, so I try to do the same. The hymn's message was beautiful.
