(December 24, 2014)
Sometimes I read the scriptures, and I just want to turn my mind off. After what I read in the Book of Mormon, that is the way that I felt. Not because I didn’t want to learn, but rather I just wanted to enjoy the scriptures and the Spirit that came from them. I was touched by the thought of Christ coming and that moment when we realize that we have not waited in vain. I was moved by the mistranslation that we are to worship Him in the fire (certainly that translation works regardless of Isaiah’s original intent). But mostly I just enjoyed feeling close to the Lord as I read.
