The Priesthood

The past week I have been able to receive a priesthood blessing & witness one being performed.

Last Sunday, Nov. 29th, I started throwing up at about 8:30am. I didn't feel well enough to go to church so I stayed home & rested. Later on that night my dad offered to give me a priesthood. So Nick & my dad were able to give me a blessing of the sick. I really felt the spirit & had faith that I would be getting better. Well that night did not go well.

The next morning I ended up going to the Insta Care because I could tell something wasn't right. We got there a little after 11 am. They said I was really dehydrated and needed to get fluids. So they started an IV of medicine. After the first bag I was feeling a little better but not by much. By 6:30 that night I was ready to go home after receiving 4 bags of medicine/fluids. I am so grateful that Nick was able to take me. I was so weak and couldn't have done it without him. He is the best! Don't worry I got better and feel much better this Sunday!

My second experience was when my dad asked for a blessing to be performed by Ben, Nick, Issac, Brett & Ivan. This was a very moving experience for me. My dad is going to be getting a procedure done this week and asked for the men to give him a blessing to ease his mind and help prepare him for the procedure. I felt the spirit so strong as my younger brother offered the blessing. I could tell that it meant a lot to him to be able to do something like that for my dad. I think in someway everyone in that room was able to have a testimony building experience. Especially my nephew Jacob.

After the blessing he continually circled the room making sure that everyone was folding their arms for prayer. He then went over to Brett and pointed at Brett's head. Jacob then put this hands on Brett's head as if he were giving Brett a blessing. It was amazing to see how he knows how to act during a prayer/blessing. I can just imagine what a wonderful priesthood leader Jacob will be. I know he won't remember that experience but I will.

The Priesthood is such a wonderful blessing! I don't know where I'd be without it. We're so lucky to have worthy men in our lives that can perform blessings.
