Alma 37:28

Alma 37:28
Applicable for today.

For behold, there is a curse upon all this land, that destruction shall come upon all those workers of darkness, according to the power of God, when they are fully ripe; therefore I desire that this people might not be destroyed.

A new verse I would add to Alma 33: 5-10

Yea, O God, thou dists hear me when I did cry unto you in my car, for that is the only place I am alone. And thou hast been merciful until me as a whined unto thee about all the challenges of my life. ANd thou hast showed me a better way.

Setting Down the Cares

Imagine holding a glass of water. How long before it gets tiring?
What if you set it down for a while? Is it easier then to pick it up again and keep holding it?
Now hold it for 6 days straight?

That is why I keep the Sabbath day holy. I need to set down my glass of water; the cares of the world, my worries, my purchasing, my money concerns. Then when Monday roles around I can pick it up again, or if it still feels too heavy, I can analyze what to do with any or all of it. Maybe I should water the flowers with it or drink it so I don't have to carry it. When I am concerned with carrying the glass, I rarely have the ability to look it from a different perspective and deal with it effectively. But when I set it down on Sunday, I have a chance to see it from a new angle.

It is a chance to prioritize and rearrange my life. To decide what is  most important and do that. It also is refreshing. Most of the time I can pick my glass up happily again and carry on with a smile.

Sometimes it's all in how you ask

I wanted some help to hang some hooks. So I went up to my husband and said "Why don't you pick up your big boy drill and we can do some screwing together."
It didn't take him long to get off his computer game.

When "Yes" is not enough

I had a temple recommend interview yesterday. And most if it is yes or no questions of your belief and actions. So one happily answers yes to many of the questions. Yes, I believe in God the Eternal Father, in his Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost....but when I was asked about if I believe and sustain the modern prophet, seer and revelator. I pictured smiling President  Monson in my mind and wanted to shout "HELL YES!" but refrained myself. I didn't think the colorful metaphor would go over too well in the middle of the temple recommend interview.

Dear President Monson, I love you. Thank you for all you do.
