Thoughtful Gems

Friday, February 22, 2013

Everyday I receive a quote from a talk or thought that has been given by a General Authority of my Church and they always seem to uplift me and tell me something that I need to hear. It's so great! These two that I've received lately have been lovely and I just thought I'd share them with you.

This one just seems to give me hope in the fact that as I try a little harder each day, I can be a better me in every way.

"Life by the yard is hard; by the inch it's a cinch. Each of us can be true for just one day--and then one more and then one more after that--until we've lived a lifetime guided by the Spirit, a lifetime close to the Lord, a lifetime of good deeds and righteousness."

And this one makes me think about how these next 5 months can't go by quick enough! I'm so anxious to hold little miss baby Kennedy in my arms and marvel at the creation that Cole and I have been blessed with from our Heavenly Father. 

"Yes, life is precious! No one can cuddle a cherished newborn baby, look into those beautiful eyes, feel the little fingers, and caress that miraculous creation without deepening reverence for life and for our Creator. Life comes from life. It is a gift from our Heavenly Father. It is eternal, as he is eternal."

Happy Friday!

P.S. A little update to come about our recent happenings this weekend!
