devil (insert horns here) is definitely in the details.
Some spiritual thoughts I have been having...sometimes I am so amazed by the faith and trust our Father in Heaven places in us when we are called to serve him in various capacities. By staying close to the spirit we can feel so much more comfortable in carrying out His plans through us. Yesterday I had to rely on that very heavily while presenting my testimony and thoughts on Strengthening Families to a large group of people. The weight of that responsibility is both exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. The best part was having my best friend and husband at my side. Since it was about Strengthening Families I didn't think anyone would mind if I brought him up with me. He also shared some spontaneous thoughts guided by the spirit and it felt right.
I am going...to work on my genealogy as soon as I finish this. Working on a possible surprise for Jim and trying to figure out a problem area on one of his lines.
I am quoting...I love that I have lots of quotes on Pinterest so I can easily find one. This week I saw two I liked a lot. "Expectation is the root of all heartache." Isn't that the truth? And the second one... "Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you have spoken but the recipient may treasure them over a life time."
If I could change one thing it would be...that Jennifer was not having another surgery in June to repair and complete the surgery she is now recovering from. Heading back to Utah for some weeks on June 1st to give a helping hand. Driving this time so that will be nice. It is hard when we do not have a car there.
A photo I am sharing this week...from our day trip to Marin county. This is lovely place is called Muir Woods Overlook.
This is one of the prettiest places to get a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean. You drive right up to this very nicely developed, yet rustic little space on the top of the cliffs and they have picnic tables scattered about. The view is over the moon on a clear day. I like to sit at one of the tables on the edge of the cliff and just absorb the sun and the sight. It would be such an inspiring place to write. When I get a laptop eventually that I like for writing I want to do this. It would be equal to Yosemite where I was able to spend the day writing a few years ago now. Jim loves to wander around and explore. We both love taking photos here.
Well, that is it for this week. I hope yours is going well. Your life is your family history. The pages are blank for you to write upon them. Make it a fantastic week. Share your love, serve others, communicate with those that are important to you, be filled with gratitude for a loving Father in Heaven and the privilege of knowing Him. And whatever you are engaged in accomplishing, never give up!
