This evening Joy made a very interesting observation. We were reading in Mosiah about Abinadi teaching king Noah and his priests. After the reading, Joy told me about the places you could go after you died - there was one where you could be with Heavenly Father, one where you could just see him, and one where you couldn't be with him at all because you were with Satan. She said, "I hope I will be in the first one. But, I think I will actually be in the middle one. I still pick my nose." WHAT? I hope that things as minor as nose picking won't keep you out, or I and my far more serious problems haven't a chance! So, we had a little talk about kids under eight, and how now is a great time to practice doing things correctly so that when it counts, you will already be ready. And, we talked about the atonement and repentance. They say that you need to be willing to listen when they want to talk, but it doesn't always go the way you expect.
