Just a thought or two...
Today a friend of mine shared two thoughts with me. I LOVED them, and wanted to share them with you.
#1 thought...
"It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and all situations. They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass away.""
~Abraham Lincoln
I loved this thought. In times that seem especially difficult it seems as though the time has slowed down, and that I am stuck and will never be able to dig myself out. But everything does pass away, and eventually things will get better.
#2 thought...
"When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place."
This needs no explanation!!!
Thank you Aubrey for sharing these two amazing thoughts. I needed them!

To whom it may concern...

Lately it seems like too many people that I LOVE with all my heart are faced with intense trials and challenges. I wish I could do or say something to make everything go away, or vanish into thin air. I wish I had that power, but I don't! I am so sorry!

I know this won't mean much, or even really help! But I love you and I continue to pray each and every day for the well being of those I love! I pray that you will find peace and strength in Heavenly Father. I pray that you will find peace with in yourself, and I pray that you will know how grateful I am to have you in my life.

I am not going to name names. But you know who you are! And though I don't call as often as I should, and I am not the best sister/friend that I should be, I truly do thank Heavenly Father for you!

Be strong, be brave, and endure to the end. The Lord knows your needs, He knows your heart, He knows how to bless you, and most importantly He knows YOU and He loves YOU!

Yesterday in primary we learned about the Holy Ghost and how we can recognize the still small voice, and how as long as we are "plugged in" or in tune, we will be able to feel and hear the Holy Ghost direct us and keep us safe. As I was talking to the children I remembered times in my life that I have been guided and directed by the Holy Ghost and it made me realize that as of late I have been slacking. My Scriptrue study and personal prayers have been spotty at best. I have found myself saying, "I will do it in a minute" or "I am to tired, I will do it in the morning", or (this one is embarassing) not kneeling to say my prayers. I haven't been in tune like I should be. In turn I haven't been as receptive to the promptings of the Holy Ghost.
When I got home, I was reflecting on the things I taught, I realized that The Lord had planned for me to teach this lesson so that I could re-group and re-dedicate myself to my scripture studies, and my personal prayers.
I am so grateful that I can have these experiences and that I can recognize and learn from them. I am grateful that The Lord cares for me, and that he will never give up on me, even when I give up on myself.
I am grateful for the Gift of The Holy Ghost. There have been so many times in my life that I have felt His guidance.
I can't imagine my life without the gospel. It is such a comfort to me.
I am especially grateful that I have been given the opportunity to serve in the primary. I learn so much each and every week. The children teach me unconditional love, and help me to feel the pure love of Christ. I am grateful for the women I have the priveldge of serving in the presidency with, for their amazing strength, their continual dedication, and their beautiful testimonies.
I am truly blessed beyond measure, probably more than I deserve.
I know I wouldn't be where I am today if I had not listened to the Holy Ghost to kneel in humble prayer, submit to the Lord's will and allow the Lord to guide me. I know we were lead to Vernal as part of the plan Heavenly Father has for me and my family. I am so grateful that I listened to that prompting. I love Vernal, I love the friends I have made here, and I love that my family is happy. I haven't ever regreted moving here, because I submitted to the Lord's will knowing that he would bless and watch over us. And though I miss my family with all my heart I know that I won't be away from them forever, because the Lord has promised that we can be together forever!!!

Ah Ha...
This is the little fart that has been eating my tomoto plants.
As we were watering the garden Grant noticed it's tracks. Then the little stinker came back for seconds. Luckily we were outside when he returned and hopefully we scared him away. But just to make sure we sprayed all our plants with garlic water. That ought to do the trick. If not, I guess we will bring out the big guns! And by big guns I mean deer repelent. Don't worry I wouldn't shoot it. At least not until deer season! :)
I love to garden. Or at least I am learning to love it! My plants are coming in nicely and the and the weather is finally cooperating.
The only problem I am having is the stinking animals. I have a skunk, a racoon, a couple thousand cats, a couple rogue dogs, a coyote, a few field mice, and a possible deer or two. I have sprayed my plants with garlic water, and soap water, but it isn't working as a deterant for what ever animal is nibbeling in my tomato leaves. If you know a miracle cure for keeping the wildlife out of my garden I would love to hear it! I want my garden to produce nice, juicy, plump veggies, and my furry little friends are making it hard for me!!!

Garden's, and Grass, and Chickens, Oh my...
We have been a busy little family. Since April we have...
Planted grass...
Planted a garden...

We bought chickens.

Disclaimer...these are not our chickens. We have bought our chicken's but they have not arrived yet, but hopefully they should be here this Wednesday or Thursday.

It's been an adventure, but it's been fun! We are very excited to have a grass (FINALLY). The boys aren't very excited about the garden. Mostly because we turned it over to them to weed, water, and tend. However, they are excited for the chickens. I am too. We have meat chickens and egg layers. I am not sure what we are thinking! We will see how well it works!

What's wrong with this picture?

I don't know why I even try?
