by Elder Robert C. Gay
The cause of Christian is not for the faint of heart. There are mockers and scorners all around willing and able to point a finger and raise a voice in hearty laughter at someone’s expense. And what better victim than someone who is trying to see good and beauty in others? Continue reading
I live in Wyoming and a true Wyomingite lives by certain truths. One, you don’t plan trips during winter. If there happens to be a nice day and the roads are open then go somewhere. You should take advantage of those moments in winter because more than likely, the weather may not be conducive to driving and the roads may be closed. It’s a truth or merely a fact of life here in Wyoming. But life doesn’t stop just when the snow comes. Sometimes you have to make plans even in Wyoming. Continue reading
where have you gone?
Why did you leave?
Have you found your song?
Do you know how much I grieve?
Come home, angel, come home. Continue reading
Just a comforting thought to think of when you look at the next sunset. Continue reading
by President Henry B. Eyring
Enduring is such an ugly sounding word. The name evokes images of white knuckles, exhaustion, and thoroughly being spent. Just thinking of it makes me feel tired and worn out. Continue reading
Let me start off by saying (again) all I want to do is walk. Well, walk and get credit, so to speak, for walking. In other words, I just want to measure my distance per walk and see how far I’ve gone and set goals about how far I want to go. That’s all. In order to do this, I need a device to measure my distance. Seems simple enough, or so I thought. But nothing is really that simple, right?

that sit on a hill
overlooking the land
as if a silent sentinel. Continue reading
I have always been a bit of a dreamer. Too much dream and not enough do. It probably has something to do with my skill at doing. It never turns out quite as well as what I see in my mind. Continue reading
President Russell M. Nelson
I remember years ago when we were reminded of this counsel. The correct name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints not the Mormon Church. I went to work and wouldn’t you know, the subject of worship came up. I timidly used the full name and my coworker said, “Oh, so you’re a Mormon?” Continue reading
I started this little blog seven years ago this month. For seven years I’ve posted little blurbs and thoughts and highly suspected my posts were overlooked. I just haven’t found a passion or interest to focus on so my writing is random and broad. But I keep toiling at it just in case something kicks in and I need to be prepared with this blog already in place. The point is I post four times a week and barely make my daily 10 view goal. In fact, I have had to round out the views on occasion to make 10. Not proud of it but it is a fact of life. So when I do post something that gets a little attention I’m surprised. That is what happened during the 2018 Christmas season. Continue reading
