Love to Help Father

My assignment this past week at the temple had me cleaning the cafeteria. At first I was a little put off at having to clean up with the cafeteria. I didn't see how this was temple worker job responsibilities. I made my way down to the cafeteria with thoughts of "why would people not clean up after themselves, they are in the temple for goodness sakes?"

As I was cleaning I decided I need to get rid of these negative thoughts and find the lesson here. I decided to do something that makes me happy so I hummed to myself. The first tune that came to my mind was the primary song that goes, "When we're helping we're happy and we sing as we go, for we love to help father for we all love him so." Immediately I stopped what I was doing and had this warm feeling of love encompass me. I knew at that moment that I did love my Heavenly Father and this was His house. He needs my help to keep His home clean and inviting which is what I am doing by cleaning off the counters and vacuuming the floors.

I love my Father and helping him does make me feel happy. I know that the way to show love to my Heavenly Father is to help Him in anyway I can whether its cleaning the temple or helping one of His children. I'm so grateful that the Lord allowed me to learn this lesson in His house.
