My thoughts this morning go to Hanna. It;s been 13 years today. I was checking my email and came across this quote from Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley, which says it all.

"The eternal nature of man has been revealed. We are sons and daughters of God. God is the Father of our spirits. We lived before we came here. We had personality. We were born into this life under a divine plan. We are here to test our worthiness, acting in the agency which God has given to us. When we die we shall go on living" ("The Great Things Which God Has Revealed," Ensign, May 2005).

We miss you sweetheart.

Ponderize your life!

During Conference this past weekend, we were chanllenged to Ponderize a Scripture a week by Elder Durrant. I really want to do this, so here's my scripture for the week of Oct 5.
My "Ponderize" scripture for the week: 2 Nephi 4:15
"And upon these I write the things of my soul, and many of the scriptures which are engraven upon the plates of brass. For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children."
What this was saying to me, is that I don't journal or blog enough of my spiritual feelings, and I really need to start. This is the scripture he used and I want to make it my own. I really felt the spirit so strongly during Conference. When they announced the new members of the Quorum of 12 Apostles, I felt good about the men called to fill the open positions from the deaths of Boyd, K. Packer, L. Tom Perry, and Richard G. Scott.  This many at once hasn't happened since 1908, so it was pretty momentous. I even took the day off work, so I could watch and listen. I know these men are called of God to be the new Apostles!

Utah Shop Hop 2015

Last Thursday and Friday, I got the chance to go on a Shop Hop with my daughter and some friends! We had so much fun going from one quilting store to another across the state of Utah. I was entranced by how different each store was and the things each did with the theme of Quilts Over Broadway. Some did more then others, which was great. Each store had a different show to showcase. From Annie to Wizard of Oz. I loved it!

Day 30- Poetry Challenge-Credo Poem

I believe in the children of the world, the reality of making a difference, the people who are trying, the hope of a brighter future, the things I know that are true, real, right, and good.
But I don't believe in hating others for any reason.
I believe in love beyond the grave, I believe in living a life of meaning, I believe in showing love to others, butterflies, rainbows, and babies. And I believe in being the best me I can be each and every day.

Day 27-Poetry Challenge-Richtameter

Life on this earth
Knowing the Plan of God
Is for eternal families
Our cup is full forever and ever
When our mortal life is ended
And we see our savior
Arms around us
