Some Random bits of wisdom I gleaned from the Universe this Month

4 Apr

And some other things I’ve learned before, but were brought back again to me with power.

I will contend with him who contendeth with thee and I will save thy children. Isaiah 49:15

Exercising 2-3 times a week for 3 weeks will result in me losing 5 pounds-even though I wasn’t great with the dieting part! WOO HOO!

Having someone chew you out for a couple of days is no fun, but you can learn from it.

Having people chew you out nearly every day for 6 weeks can make you wonder if you really are so mentally unbalanced that you didn’t see all these problems yourself before someone else pointed them out.

[We should] Pray for guidance, Do our best, Act with confidence and God will guide our steps. (David A Bednar, April Conf 2011)

Working consistently toward a goal for 30 days is both rewarding and confidence building.

Finding out that you have to face something difficult is better than knowing something is wrong, but not knowing what it is.

Facing something difficult with someone you love is better than facing something difficult alone.

Laziness never was Happiness. (thanks sister)

If you have ever had a month when the 6 days that your baby was so sick with flu that she threw up every 2 hours for 48 hours and then couldn’t keep food down for the remaining 4 days AND that week was so much easier than everything else you had to deal with that it felt like a blessing from God to just rest and take care of your baby BUT you still sort of complained about it because it was the only thing that wasn’t so devastating that you could actually talk about it THEN you will have some idea of my feelings the past few weeks.

When we have a vision of what we can become, our desire and our power to act increase enormously. (Dalin H. Oaks April Conf. 2011)

The Future is as bright as your faith. Thomas S. Monson

    Sadly, I've had months like that too. Not fun.But it won't last forever. Be strong.

    Yes. I loved Conference and I've been wondering about the bits you wrote about in between for a while now. I still wonder and I'm sad for you. And a little upset. Who would dare criticize my cousin!? You were my childhood hero!! You are not mentally unbalanced. People are cruel when they don't keep their covenants and they are crueler when their heart becomes hard and they ignore the Spirit. Of course the world looks wrong to someone like that – they're standing in the wrong place, not you! (And just for the record, you are still my hero.)
