LdS gEmS

A great while ago I used to get quotes from LDS Gems through my e-mail. I was looking through them and I found this quote from Joseph B. Wirthlin that truly is a gem...
"Many today feel troubled and distressed; many feel that, at any moment, the ships of their lives could capsize or sink. It is to you who are looking for a safe harbor that I wish to speak today, you whose hearts are breaking, you who are worried or afraid, you who bear grief or the burdens of sin, you who feel no one is listening to your cries, you whose hearts are pleading, 'Master, carest thou not that I perish?' To you I offer a few words of comfort and of counsel.
Be assured that there is a safe harbor. You can find peace amidst the storms that threaten you. Your Heavenly Father - who knows when even a Sparrow falls - knows of your heartache and suffering. He loves you and wants the best for you. Never doubt this. While He allows all of us to make choices that may not always be for our own or even others' well-being, and while He does not always intervene in the course of events, He has promised the faithful peace even in their trials and tribulations."
There is hope.

GoBbLe GoBbLe...AnD sUcH

I trust your Turkey Day was fabulous. We headed to Meddy to be with Nic's family, but unfortunately I had to drive back on Turkey Day because I had to work on Friday. Boo. It was so worth it though. (There are no pictures from our festivities because I forgot our camera. Oops.)
This past weekend we were able to spend it with my family - my brother and his family were in town. We had a great time with them. We had to break the tradition of getting a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving because it was too cold and my dad just recently had knee surgery. We spent the day doing this down my parent's driveway:
I'm a daredevil
Penguin style
Putting up the GIANT tree
Decorated. Beautiful finished product.
I forget how much fun sledding is. Their driveway was perfect for the kiddies and even the adults got in on the action. Holidays are the best because it's all about family. :)
