Ten Things of Thankful: General Conference Edition

Every six months, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds a general conference.  People all over the world can view the sessions (translated into many different languages) in meetinghouses, online at lds.org, or on television.   I spent hours last weekend watching conference, and by the end of the day on Sunday, my spiritual cup was overflowing.  This week's Ten Things of Thankful post highlights some of the words I heard last weekend.  I'm thankful for how each of these statements spoke to my soul:












LInk to most of the images (I was having trouble with a couple of them.)

  1. Yes, prayer should be integral to whatever we do. Thanks for reminding us of that!

  3. I especially enjoyed a couple of the quotes above... the one about 'doubt your doubts before your faith'... makes sense in a way that seems simple and yet not, the idea that faith is a thing in and of itself, not a reason or an argument (to believe a thing) but it is self-contained.
    and the other one was the '...poverty of discontent' which I believe I have seen in many (very different) contexts, but still the same truth.
    cool

  4. Some very great thoughts presented here. I know it's a thing that most dislike, but I am not a fan of organized religion. I find too many men force their views, instead of the actual words presented Christ. When asked why I'm no longer Catholic, I stated, "I don't feel I need a middle man." I've had the same conversation with several other denominations. So, I'm either damned, or saved, depending how the man upstairs takes my comments. I hold him inside of my body, which is my temple. Good post to get people thinking! Great job!

  5. A lovely list of Thankful, and one I can really feel akin to, Kristi :)

    When I study the scriptures each day, and commune with Jehovah God and Jesus Christ in prayer, I never forget to be thankful for the technology available that helps me in my worship.

    Through this technology I am able to listen in as my brothers and sisters in spirit assemble together and, by joining in, even though I am in my home, and they are together in our local Kingdom Hall, I am able to avail myself of the spiritual food provided for us all.

    I truly bless the day that the internet was invented, as it has freed people like myself - someone too ill to join in with my congregation in the flesh - to be able to listen to them, and follow along in our acts of worship :)

    We are truly blessed to have all the information we need at the touch of a button, aren't we? :)

  9. I love the quote about how each day is a day of decision and that our decisions determine our destiny - so very true.

    A lovely set of sentiments here - some great food for thought. Like the one about family too!

    Best - Louise

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

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
