#LightTheWorld by Teaching Others

Jesus taught others, many times one-on-one.  He taught with patience and invited his learners to be active participants.  




The #LightTheWorld initiative topic today is "Jesus Taught Others and So Can You."  I'm trying to think of how I will participate in this particular challenge.  I think I will talk to my friend who wants to learn to play the piano, and I will see if there is a time we can get together to start. Clearly, that will take more than one afternoon (unless she happens to be living in some sort of Groundhog Day existence--if you don't understand the reference, watch the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day").  However, it isn't mandatory that the #LightTheWorld initiative be completed in full each day.  As we go about doing good each day, our little efforts will add up to something bigger.  As my friend will need to practice the piano a little each day until she becomes skilled, I will also need to practice acts of service a little each day until I become skilled at helping others.

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: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
