One of my responsibilities as a seminary teacher is to help my students to recognize promptings of the Spirit. It helps if the teacher also recognizes promptings....which in my case doesn't always happen. Definitely something I'm working on. I'm amazed at myself when I do - and know that I did.
This morning we had an all classes seminary breakfast. It's the last day of classes before Christmas break, so we got all the students together - I'm not sure what the final head count was - something like 60 or 70 kids...a goodish amount.
My assignment was to bring orange juice and an electric griddle. I hauled them down to the van this morning, then backed out of the garage. As I was just about ready to shut the garage, I had a thought come to me "Pam". I put on the parking brake, jumped out of the van and grabbed some out of the bunker.
As I was bringing my stuff into the kitchen at church 10 minutes later, one of the first things that was said to me was "you didn't by any chance think to bring some butter or Pam??" I was happy to say yes.
The Spirit whispered "Pam".
