Sunday Musings of the Spirit: September's Visiting Teaching Message

September's visiting teaching message can be found at this link. I particularly liked the quote from President Kimball:  ". . .what glorious consequences can flow. . .from small but deliberate deeds!"

Small, seemingly insignificant events comprise the daily ebb and flow of life, but taken in total, shape our characters.  We have a great opportunity to support each other through simple acts of kindness.  I thought about the growth of seeds, and decided to make a handout using a seed packet template.  I put the quote from President Kimball on the front, "planting instructions" on the back, and inside the packet, I put paper strips listing examples of small deeds of service. 




The paper strips will be placed completely inside the packet. 

I think I've figured out (with help from John) how to share the file with you.  Click here to be taken to the pdf file, which you should be able to print.  A few snips of the scissors and a bit of glue, and your seed packet should be ready. 

Thanks for those who have offered a smile or kind word when it was most needed or least expected.

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
