Our July Relief Society activity was intended to be a lovely backyard potluck. We had a devotional based off of Elder Quentin L Cook's last Conference talk entitled The Lord is My Light .

What actually happened was that it rained on the night of our activity so we couldn't meet outside at all. Enter Plan B, where we scrambled to put together a quick "outdoorsy" feel for our activity, which had now been relocated to the church.
Another committee member even found some out of doors sounds to play on the sound system, so while we dined we had crickets chirping, a babbling brook and birds singing in the background. (Seriously brilliant improvisation there!)
We also strung a few Christmas lights, turned the lights down and called it good. The activity turned out fine, even if it wasn't exactly how we had pictured it!
