Once a week post a photo of something you are most grateful for. This gives us a chance to reflect on the good things we have learned from or that have made us better in our everyday lives or things we just enjoy! I think everyone needs to be more grateful for what they have now instead of always thinking about what we want! This is one of the things we can do to be more gracious people. It will be like a photo gratitude journal.
I am a late on posting my 52 blessings for this week, and am trying to catch up on everything. This past weekend was crazy, but full of a lot of fun. So scroll down to see what else we were up to last weekend. I had a couple of things in mind when I was thinking about what to be “grateful” for this week. Then when Sunday came and we heard the news about President Hinckley, I knew what I wanted to post about.
President Hinckley was a remarkable man. What he represented is what I am grateful for. I am so thankful to belong to a church that is lead by a person who gets direct revelation from our Heavenly Father. It is amazing to know that we are lucky enough to have a prophet. To know that even though our beloved Gordon B. Hinckley is now gone, that there will be someone else appointed to continue the work of the Lord.
I am so thankful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It brings so much joy, and peace into my life. It gives me the direction, and guidance that I need in order to be the best that I can be. I know that I belong there, and my life would not be the same without it.
On a different note...I am still working on the questions you asked. I might have to go on to some of the others before I post about how Shawn and I met. I haven't written down our whole story, and want to give it the justice that it deserves.
