Enliven the Soul

Favorite teaching moment from the sunbeams last week: I finished talking about noses and smelling and went on to tasting. I asked “what are our mouths for?” And sweet little Jacob F. said “Smiling!” 🙂

Here are the things we tasted as part of the lesson.  They loved them all.  Yes, all.  Mixed in the little cups was their very favorite.  😉

Second favorite moment? Madi drawing a mushroom with a big ol’ smile… and hair, when the prompt was to draw something they like to taste with their tastebuds.

Third? All of them crowded around the magnifying mirror to see said tastebuds. How I love those little sunbeams!

This scripture from the lesson makes my heart happy:

D&C 59:18 Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;

19 Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul.

My sister Anna and I were talking earlier about how much we love food and think it’s our love language (only partly in jest).  I think the above scripture proves that one of Heavenly Father’s love languages must be food too.
