Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers out there!
We had a little time this morning to walk around before meeting the choir at the bus. Here is the city on a beautiful, sunny day.
I am writing this on the coach as we make our way from Belfast to Dublin. If it seems a little disjointed, blame it on the incredible scenery that I keep looking at in between sentences.
The choir was split between two wards, and thoroughly enjoyed mingling with the members of the wards. Sundays are often the favorite days of tour. I hear the choir was featured throughout the meetings, putting together spontaneous performances. It’s not really a stretch, though! A quick lunch was eaten, and we met at a third chapel to pack the coach and be on our way—early, no less!
I will try to take photos along the way to give you just a peek at the beauty here, but it’s impossible to really show you. This is most definitely a place to which each of us would love to return.
It was almost a three hour coach ride, so in between good Sabbath conversations many caught needed Sabbath naps.
We were greeted at the Dublin Stake Center with a good supper that was ready when we arrived, and we moved quickly into the chapel to prepare for our first fireside of tour.
We love the firesides, as they are a little more personal and allow for strong bearing of testimonies. The chapel was full, and the response wonderful. A great beginning to a new city.
