Ten Things of Thankful: Letter D edition

It seems silly to have a letter of the day post when it isn't the A to Z challenge, but as I thought back over my week, one letter stands out:  D.

March 2015 Visiting Teaching Message

"Patience is a virtue."  Developing patience, however, takes time and doesn't come easily for most.  The March visiting teaching message is: "The Attributes of Jesus Christ:  Long-suffering and Patient."

Ten Things of Thankful: Mainly Photos Edition

Some weeks, I have plenty of free time.  I blog regularly, I stay on top of the housework, and I have time to think.  This was not one of those kind of weeks. I did think, "Well, at least I can get a Wordless Wednesday post up," but when I sat down to do that, I realized it was Thursday.  Despite being a day behind, I did steal a moment here and there to take some photos of things that brought a smile to my face throughout the week.

Ten Things of Thankful: Counting (or Not) Compassion Edition

Compassion  has been on my mind lately.  I participated in 1000 Voices for Compassion.  I read some of the other posts about compassion.  My facebook feed has been exploding with links about compassion, and my twitter account has been notifying me almost non-stop about compassion.  And that is just my virtual life.

Compassion: A Guiding Principle

Link to the link-up

When Lizzi first invited me to join in the 1000 Voices of Compassion event, I did not jump in with enthusiasm.  I doubted, wondering if "compassion" was code for political policies or social agendas that I did not support.  Fortunately, I came to my senses and realized that, yes, I most definitely did want to join with other bloggers in writing about compassion.  Compassion is an admirable character trait, and one I hope to develop more fully.  My mom was my first teacher of compassion.  I've written about her teaching methods in a previous post.
