My darling wife is coming to the completion of a very bittersweet weekend in light of her calling change at church. I just wanted to take a moment to let her know how very proud I am of her tonight. Her faithfulness and devotion to her callings brings great honor to both her and me. I feel like I had been given a blessing that I didn't earn when she married me, but I thank God that she bestowed the honor of being her husband upon me. Sylli, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do for me, for the sacrifices that you constantly make on my behalf, for looking past all of my ineptitudes and quirks, (yes there are quite a few of those) and most of all, for having the love and patience to let me be your husband. I think 2008 is going to be fabulous for the Johnsons

We are SOOOO sad to have Sylvia taken from us. I know she must have been needed pretty badly elsewhere, but we sure were hoping to be graced by her presence for awhile longer!!

Yes, pretty badly needed elsewhere is putting it lightly! ;)

We will definitely miss your wife in RS. Brianna is glad to have her in Nursery, though. She is starting to enjoy it!! Yay! If we can just get her first five minutes to be less stressful for Sylvia, then we'll have made a break-through!
You are an amazing woman, Miss Sylli! I am glad to know you, and to have had the priviledge to work along side of you!

So I gather Sylli was called into the nursery... Has anyone been called to replace her as RS pianist yet? Come on guys, help me out. Remember I don't hear these things anymore! Please keep me and Corrie updated on ward changes!

TMOSL, you served in nursery with me years ago... Sylli, I know you've done this before and you are wonderful with those nursery kids! Enjoy your new calling!

WOW what an amazing hubby you have sylli. What a way to transition into a new calling. :D

Papa D said...

Stop it, MOSL! You are setting a precedent that my wife will expect me to follow.

Seriously, great tribute to a wonderful woman.

"Smile, God loves you."
