Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you are all staying toasty and warm for those in the colder climates, and cool & dry for those who are not! LOL! We are expecting rain today and tonight but it has only sprinkled a little bit. Hope the weather makes up its mind soon! I have a tennis match in OKC that will happen unless it is rained out. It would be nice to have a snuggly night at home with the family, though. I love this Fall weather!
I want to start today's post by sharing some of the blessings I am thankful for in my life.
#1 - I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and to know that my Heavenly Father loves me and has a plan for me! Guess what?? He also has a plan for you, too! Click HERE to read all about it!
#2 - I am grateful to have the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am so thankful that this book was preserved and then translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that this is the word of God and that the fullness of the gospel is on the earth today. You can read more about it by clicking HERE!
#3 - I am so thankful for a wonderful, loving husband. After 17 years of marriage I know that he is perfect for me. We balance each other out so well. You can say that I am the FIRE in our relationship and he is the comforting embers. I am blessed with a wonderful man who I am sealed to in the house of the Lord for time and all eternity! You can read more about the blessings of the Temple HERE and what it means to be a Forever Family!
#4 - I am so grateful to be a mother in these last days to 5 beautiful, talented, wonderful children! They are the joy of my life even when they are super hard! I am so blessed to be able to have them in my world.
I have so many things to be grateful for…. my mother, sisters, brother, aunts, cousins, in-laws, friends, church family, home, food, etc. I hope you all know how grateful I am for each of you, too!!
In today's chapters in Ether the Jaredites travel to the Promised Land in barges. Here is a favorite scripture of mine.
"And they did sing praises unto the Lord; yea, the brother of Jared did sing praises unto the Lord, and he did thank and praise the Lord all the day long; and when the night came, they did not cease to praise the Lord."
I love the scripture above because I know that Hymns and uplifting music can be very powerful in our lives. I know that when I am playing them around the house while I am getting chores done, that I feel inspired to be a better mother, who to serve, and also I feel peaceful. Here is a peaceful hymn I'd like to share.
There is so much more to share with you! I hope you all have a fabulous week!
