Long story, friend of a friend, yada yada. The day before we were to be married, I lost my purse at a casino buffet. This purse had my temple recommend and I was going to get my endowments out within the next 5 hours. I thought it was a sign from above that we were just not meant to be. I was heart broken, devastated and confined to utter agony as I sat crying in the car. We had searched all over, my bishop was gone... it had all just stacked up. But not to what I thought, to a miracle! Something sweet to remind me that God had a big hand in our being together. For you see, my sweetheart didn't panic or give up. He went back to the casino, checked the buffet who didn't have the purse, checked the lost and found who DID happen to have the purse - which is absolutely nothing but a miracle, because if you lose something in a casino, it's gone, hasta luego man - and voila, there was my temple recommend with 1 hour to spare. Does God love me? I know so. Does He live? Absolutely. Can you see His miracles in your life?)

* Pass out a piece of white paper and have the children fold it into fourths. Give them each a pencil. Sing O My Father (Hymns pg. 292) and have them draw what they hear for each verse in each section of the paper. Older children can write down words that stick out to them as they listen. Have the children share what they heard or felt.
