Beautifying my Life

I can't begin to express my overwhelming desire for this painting. When I saw it in a Random Framing/Art Store back in 2002-2003. I was taken so aback because it's just so unbelievably gorgeous. I love this painting!

I love that Christ is portrayed with a smile in this painting by Liz Lemon Swindle. He's having such a good time with the kids who are pictured in this photo. I have come to appreciate many depictions of the Savior but this one is awesome. I was in a friends home recently and she had this print framed in her front hall. It's so fantastic!

Things I've Found Today that have been great :)

I don't know if people have seen this video or not but it is awesome.It has pictures from the Life of Christ and it's put to Come Thou Fount it's very very good and very very well done. I like this version of Come Thou Fount.

I was also browsing the Time Out For Women board and found this blog posted about who we LDS people are Just for the Record

so that's it for the moment.

"I'm Pretty Sure Girls are Smarter Than Boys Because They Picked Us To Marry!"

Well I can't think of a better way to begin this blogging session without the 'QUOTE OF THE WEEK' It came from the principal at the one school I work at and he was talking to the kids on the Chess Team. I was like seriously, the greatest quote of the week!

I have been thinking a lot about my last post and sure I was a little hurt and maybe a little bitter I think I've just got to learn to get past it and forget about it. I've come to realize that I don't want to have any regrets and I don't regret what I wrote but It disappoints me that I felt that I SHOULD write it. Sure I value their friendship maybe a little more than others consider it but if they don't want to have me out and hang out with them that's perfectly fine. I can definitely think of other things to do from now on when things are happening. I can find a zillion things to do whether it be to go visit other people who want to hang out with me or find time to expand myself and get a better understanding of who I am.

The funniest part of all this is I can definitely think of other people to hang out with. I'm finding the more and more I'm out and working the more I'm talking to them and in the near future inviting them out to something awesome! Whatever it might be.

Anyway, this weekend should be exciting all the same. Elder Earl C. Tingey is Speaking at a fireside tonight and I think he's a pretty amazing speaker. I really value the last CES fireside broadcast that he spoke about The Simple Truths from Heaven - The Lords Pattern
Even if he talked about marriage there are a lot of things that he said in it that RING TRUE!

I can't think of anything else to write about right now. I'm just finding that slowly I'm coming out of being who I have been for so long that it feels nice that I care more about myself and what I can offer than judging the things that are beyond my control.

I can't think of anything else to say!

An Awareness Test

I Still Can't Get Over it.. I'm sorry Pluto You Just didn't make the Cut.

in 1930, Clyde Tombaugh discovered a ninth planet. An 11 year old named Venetia Burney named it Pluto, after the Roman god of the Underworld, because it was dark and mysterious. In 2006, the International Astronomical Union voted to demote Pluto from planet to dwarf-planet status. The scientists decided Pluto was not big enough, not round enough, and too close to Neptune. Turns out Pluto had a lot of fans, and they were quite upset when their favourite planet got downgraded.

I know this isn't New News but I was a fan of Pluto. Sorry Pluto. Looks Like I won't be adventuring to outer space to see what you look like anytime soon.

Looking Forward

There are some things I have been thinking about recently that are basically summed up in this thought from Matthew Hussey, who is a relati...
