I have decided for the moment anyway to use this site as a way to express the thoughts and feelings that come to me as I study the scriptures or listen to an inspiring talk or that just happen whenever. I suppose there are times I might write other things here too but for now this is my plan.
This is a big step for me! I have no clue what I'm doing but I am hoping to be able to post a clip from Andrew's musical. That is my motivation for doing this blog stuff. So stay tuned for the premier performance--as soon as I can figure it out.
“I promise that each faith-filled step will be met with help from heaven” – Elder Bennett
Our challenges, including those we create by our own decisions, are part of our test in mortality. . . . Our success is never measured by how strongly we are tempted but by how faithfully we respond. ---Elder Robert D. Hales, Ensign, May 2009, p.7
A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
From President Thomas S Monson talk, Ensign, Nov 2008, p.84: “Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend . . . when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present---love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature, and personal pursuits that bring us [happiness]---the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
