Six Sentence Story: Convert

I'm linking up again with Ivy for Six Sentence Stories.  This week's prompt:  convert.

It had been a horrible decision, and now she feared for her life. She had been caught in the very act, and her accusers brought her to Him--as much to condemn Him, as to condemn her.  

"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."

And with that simple statement, the crowd dispersed, and she heard the healing words,"Neither do I condemn thee:go,and sin no more."

The rumors were true, but not only did He have power to heal physical infirmities, he had power to forgive sin!  Her heart light, she knew she would never be the same.

  6. This is a story applicable to our lives everyday. We shall not judge (not our job) but forgive others and ourselves. Great, Kristi.

  7. Beautiful! I have always loved this story. More people need to learn not to be judgmental! I know I"m guilty of it myself on occasions so thanks for the reminder.

    1. Not judging others is definitely a theme throughout the New Testament, so I think we all need to hear that message.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
