    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I taught about the sacrament, and a part of the lesson was on how smells invoke memories. I gave my primary class a bottle of eucalyptus essential oil, and a bottle of lemon-and-orange essential oils mixed together. The final was a chapstick made of 100% coconut oil.

    Everyone said the Eucalyptus reminded them of their grandma or grandpa, or both.
    Most of the class said that the other oil smelled like lemons, no one could smell the orange.

    One little boy closed his eyes, took a huge sniff of the chapstick, and rapturously exclaimed, "Smells like California!"
    I privately agreed.

    Ask this question in my gospel doctrine lesson today:

    Which future U.S. President attended public school at the Kirtland Temple?

    Nobody knew the answer, so I firmly believe that they could say that they learned something today!

    Any guesses?

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Well, I interpreted it to mean future in terms of when the Kirtland Temple was operating as such. Because he hasn't exhibited any powers of prognostication, I didn't know he would be speaking about Pence.

    JP nailed it. Garfield. He was well acquainted with early church leaders and was related to one of the apostles.

    Got to teach harmony to the primary. I was asked to sub for primary music, which I am always happy to do if there isn't a conflict with my calling, and my wife, who teaches, mentioned that she thought the kids were all bored of the primary program songs. So I decided to teach them a simple harmony. Helps that the hymn they are doing has an alto line with nothing but parallel thirds. Junior was kind of a deer in the headlights time, but senior got it and sounded really good. I got another teacher to sing the tenor and I sang bass and we had a regular choir. Kids want to be challenged. 6-7 easy one verse songs with no harmony is great if you are taking a couple months to learn the program but 9-10 months, sheesh. I am hoping for that calling in another 15 years when I get released.

    I started prepping my lesson, and that dumb chewing gum metaphor is gone. Instead, we use a clean towel vs. a dirty towel. Then at the instrumental point, I will show the dirty towel and ask, "What can we do to make this dirty towel clean again?"

    I suggest you not use paper towels.

    I've got to teach a lesson on temple work for the dead tomorrow. For the umpteenth time to a room full of people in God's waiting room. I'm trying to draw new meaning out of 1Peter 3 and 4, but this year is supposed to be about the Doctrine and Covenants, and beyond doing to been-there-done-that marveling at 138 being are newest canonized section, there's nothing that that room full of go-to-the-temple weekly crowd hasn't already heard that this Thomas can't teach them.

    I'm hoping that inspiration comes in my sleep because I've been coming up empty all week on what to teach because the lesson is the same old same old.
