Sunday Reflections: Because I Have Been Given Much
“Because I have been given much I too must give.”
It’s natural to feel gratitude when we truly have been given much. But what if we haven’t been given much, especially this year when there have been so many trials and so much has been literally taken away.
Like many of you, we have also experienced challenges and losses this year. Family members have been sick with covid, one who was in a coma for several months. We have felt the negative impact of not connecting with people, especially the physical connections of handshakes and hugs. We also felt financial loss as business revenues dropped drastically at the onset of the pandemic.
Though our trials have been different than yours, we understand what some of you may be feeling. We know life has not been easy.
Yet, even with all our challenges, we have still been greatly blessed and still have much to be grateful for.
We are overall healthy. We have found ways to connect with people, including through technology such as this. We have been blessed to pivot and adjust as a business and grow our resources in ways we hadn’t anticipated at the beginning of the year.
We hope you feel through our simple voices and Elisa’s beautiful performance of this arrangement by Brent Jorgensen, our gratitude and love for you and the eternal love we have for our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ.
Truly we have each been given much.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
We love you!
