“My life is like my shoes-to be worn out in service.”
-Spencer W. Kimball (former prophet/president of TCOJCOLDS; deceased)
“Be not weary in well doing.”
-Galatians 6:9 (in the New Testament in the Bible)
“Men [and women!] should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will.”
-Doctrine & Covenants 57:28
Are your shoes worn out?
Are you weary in well doing?
Are you anxiously engaged?
“The sweetest melody is the one we haven’t heard.”
“We are proud of the artistic heritage that the Church has brought to us from its earliest beginnings, but the full story of Mormonism has never yet been written nor painted nor sculpted nor spoken.”
-Spencer Kimball; “The Gospel Vision of the Arts” (I LOVE THIS TALK!)
“The rest is still unwritten.”
My greatest creation
is still yet to be.
I daily am searching for
that inspiration in me
I’m no special professional,
no Shakespeare or Mayer
but I desire to express,
and have something to share
So give me some time,
and I just might be victorious
in creating something beautiful,
valuable, and glorious.
My greatest creation…
is still yet to be.
Anger! he smiles tow’ring
shiny metallic purple armour…
“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that ruleth his spirit [is better] than he that taketh a city.”
What’s the advantage
in learning to manage?
DON’T look back in anger.
“Anger is “a sin of thought” which, if not controlled,
may be the forerunner of vicious and violent acts.”
Anger should not be fully expressed
Nor should it be fully repressed.
When dealing with this sin of thought,
Just try to do your very best!
My naughty Nissan FINALLY passed its emission inspection!
And I bought myself a huge bottle of chocolate milk to celebrate
Folks, it’s real important to do our best to stay on top of responsibilities like this (If anyone knows what it’s like to get overwhelmed by car stuff, it’s me! But thankfully I’ve come a long way). One way to think of it is being a wise steward over your stuff. Seriously, try to maintain your vehicle so you can keep yourself and others safe and happy. Sound good? I just knew you’d see it my way…
“We are stewards over our bodies, minds, families, and properties.”
1) What things are YOU a steward over?
2) Why is wise stewardship so important?
3) How can you be an even better steward?
Okay, gotta go drink down my yummy treat.
Hmm, maybe I should pour it over a bowl of Lucky Charms!
(look at my title!)
but some are more appropriate to share than others, know what I mean?
What do kisses mean when given out like pretzels and robbed of sacredness?
PS. That pretzel is heart-shaped! So even if you just give someone a pretzel, you still love them. Gotta run this metaphor dry…
