Week In Review

So I hate to be the type of person who does "WEEK in Review" postings but I thought I would wait until the weekend since it has been quite a busy week.

MONDAY - It was a long weekend this past weekend and on Monday I was going to be lazy maybe finish reading a book or two, maybe watch a movie, however I was Hijacked by the SISTER MISSIONARIES to do some Fun Filled Missionary Work. It included a walk down the waterfront trail contacting, a really good teaching experience, a missionary making me eat a falafel (wasn't a fan), knocking on doors and ending up at FHE with them, and then finding out I wasn't doing the lesson after all and driving them home.

TUESDAY - Worked today, actually had a list of things to do from the librarian that's away so that was a BIG PLUS because I worked there all week, and I actually did everything, SWEET! OH THAT DAY, WAS MY CRAZIEST LONGEST DRIVE HOME EVER BEHIND A TRUCK! I never want to repeat it again, it's a good story

WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY - good tired long days of work.

FRIDAY - My friend H. and I went to the local bookstore and talked and chatted and bought some books. I am no longer allowed to buy a book until I read at least all the books I've started (7) and read all the ones I've bought but never read (39+) I'm going to see how well I do, Hey I might even save money.

SATURDAY - Crazy Day, Got to Sleep In (YAY!!) Went to See Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian (Good Movie, First one slightly better but way good) I love museums! Went to a Missionary homecoming for two guys who just got home, so nice, just hung out and chatted and ate good food, good night :)

One of the funniest things that occured every day this week was when I was driving to work everyday, I saw this sight off to the side of the road behind a fence.

It was like they were saying good morning to me and wishing me on my way. It was sweet of them.

Temple Quote

President George Q. Cannon said

"Every foundation stone that is laid for a Temple, and every Temple completed . . . , lessens the power of Satan on the earth, and increases the power of God and Godliness, moves the heavens in mighty power in our behalf, invokes and calls down upon us the blessings of the Eternal Gods, and those who reside in their presence."
["The Logan Temple," Millennial Star 39, no. 46 (12 November 1877): 743]

Another Quote

Elder Marvin J Ashton said

“Sisters, do not allow yourselves to be made to feel inadequate or frustrated because you cannot do everything others seem to be accomplishing. Rather, each should assess her own situation, her own energy, and her own talents, and then choose the best way to mold her family into a team, a unit that works together and supports each other. Only you and your Father in Heaven know your needs, strengths, and desires. Around this knowledge your personal course must be charted and your choices made.”
Elder Richard G. Scott said

"Your Father in Heaven and His Beloved Son love you perfectly. They would not require you to experience a moment more of difficulty than is absolutely needed for your personal benefit or for that of those you love."
". . .The Lord’s plan is to exalt you to live with Him and be greatly blessed. The rate at which you qualify is generally set by your capacity to mature, to grow, to love, and to give of yourself. He is preparing you to be a god. You cannot understand fully what that means, yet, He knows. As you trust Him, seek and follow His will, you will receive blessings that your finite mind cannot understand here on earth."

Quotes From David A. Bednar's CES May Talk

Elder Neal A. Maxwell said,
“The youth of this generation have a greater capacity for obedience than any previous generation.”

President George Q. Cannon said,
"God has reserved spirits for this dispensation who have the courage and determination to face the world, and all the powers of the evil one, visible and invisible, to proclaim the Gospel, and maintain the truth, and establish and build up the Zion of our God, fearless of all consequences. He has sent these spirits in this generation to lay the foundation of Zion never more to be overthrown, and to raise up a seed that will be righteous, and that will honor God, and honor him supremely, and be obedient to him under all circumstances"
