“The Lord's tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ” - Elder David A. Bednar

Something Small

The Lord has helped us in so many ways. Every day there is some tender mercy I have witnessed. One that recently happened in our family is a small one but that brought comfort to our sweet little boy.

We put him to bed and did our regular routine and he fell asleep only to wake up an hour later just really crying. I went in and comforted him and he fell asleep again and then woke up a little while later, this happened several times. I was so worried because this is not like him.

We discovered his back molers growing in, we gave him some numbing medicine and Tylenol and nothing would work he was getting more restless and was acting like he was in terrible pain. He couldn't fall asleep and was just screaming.

My husband then gave him a blessing using the priesthood and right after the blessing he fell asleep soundly in my arms and slept the rest of the night. It was something small to help us out with a teething issue but really it strengthened our testimonies that He does love us and He wants to show us that love.
How grateful I am for His love.
