Thought of the Day

I am friends with a gal on FB who posted about some famous Christian lady that she basically thinks is a "wolf in sheeps clothing."  I guess other people feel the same way.  Well apparently other people are bashing this gal for saying how she feels.  I don't know this lady, but I just wanted to share some short thoughts on being a Christian.  I also commented this same thing on her post.  Not sure how she feels about my thoughts, as I am a Latter-day Saint (LDS a.k.a Mormon).

  • We all interpret scripture differently but we are all followers of Jesus Christ. My definition of a Christian is being a disciple of Jesus Christ. If we claim to be His disciple we should have Christlike love towards everyone even despite differences we all have the same end goal in mind. In my church we have a song that the children learn when they are young. The song is my favorite song and I try to keep it in my heart.

    The first verse goes,

    "I'm trying to be like Jesus;
    I'm following in his ways.
    I'm trying to love as he did, in all that I do and say...

    "Love one another as Jesus loves you.
    Try to show kindness in all that you do.
    Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,
    For these are the things Jesus taught."

Anyway, just my thoughts.

My Daughter

I just have to brag out about my Jaedyn Belle this morning.  She turned 8 in January.  When my children turn 8 we have them start doing Fast Sunday's with us.  Now that church starts at 1 pm it is really hard to fast so long.  About 30 minutes ago she told me she was hungry.  I told her since she fasted through breakfast that she could go ahead and eat lunch if she wanted.  She told me no, she wants to fast.  So proud of that girl and the choices she makes!  When she was baptized she was just giddy with excitement.  When she came out of the water she was so excited she wanted to do it again.  I love that girl and the example she is!

Preston's Prayers

I love to hear Preston's prayers.  He tells stories in his prayers.  As it should be.  Kyle is flying home from Chicago right now.  Preston said prayers for dinner tonight.  He was going on naming each one of us saying that he loves us and he comes to Kyle and says, "I love dad..."  then he pauses and says, "but I miss dad."  So sweet and so real.

He misses his dad everyday while he is at work.  He will ask me, "Is dad driving?" (a.k.a. "Is dad on his way home from work.")  Today we tried to explain that no he is not driving but he is in an airplane in the sky coming home.  He was not quite sure how to understand this. 

Cerreta Chocolate Factory

We went to the Chocolate Factory in Glendale. The kids had a lot of fun. I wanted to come home and watch "I Love Lucy" after watching the candy go down the conveyer belt. After they got to make Chocolate Pizzas.

Since I don't like chocolate, the kids were a little concerned about me walking through with the nasty chocolate smell.  I joked with them that I might have to wear a mask.  I didn't and I survived. 

Happy Valentines to my SWEET family.  It sure has been a fun school year so far.
