Happy Family Home Evening to all Valentines and friends of Valentines!

Consider Charity and Love: The Savior's invitation is clear and direct: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden."

"Take my yoke upon you . . . for . . . my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30).

The Lord has spoken His peace to us. If you haven't felt that love for a while, seek to recognize it and feel it as you go about the tasks of life.

The memories of previous interactions with the Lord will become sweet gifts to bolster you when life is difficult.

"'Peace I give unto you," the Lord promises, "not as the world giveth, give I unto you" (John 14:27).

When we long for peace and strength, we only need to turn toward His outstretched arms.

How are you doing? Same scale as last week: 1=never 2=sometimes 3=often 4=almost always and 5=always
