    Our Creative Friends

    God’s Creations

    From the big old sheep

    To a baby chick’s peep,

    They were made by God,

    Even peas in a pea pod.

    From the water near land

    To the dry, hot beach sand,

    The difference of dark and light,

    Even the day and the night!

    The making of water,

    The sun that is hotter,

    Even your face

    Was made by God’s grace.

    The petal of a flower

    Was made by His power,

    The squawk of a hen,

    The lions in a den.

    The rain, snow, and hail,

    No, God didn’t fail.

    He made the moon and sun.

    Wouldn’t making the world be fun?

    Celestial Family

    A celestial family

    Is what we aim to be,

    But sometimes we can’t see

    Who we need to be.

    Then we turn to prayer

    And all our hearts we share.

    Together our burdens we bear

    Until our celestial family is there.

    I Feel the Spirit

    I feel the Spirit when I am dipped into the water,

    And I feel warm and happy right away.

    I have waited for this since I was a toddler.

    My Heavenly Father guides the way.

    I felt peace in my heart when I received the Holy Ghost.

    I like when I got the Holy Ghost the most.
