Hello to my most awesome family 🙂
“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.” -Stephen Covey
“I invite us to identify the time-wasting distractions in our lives that may need to be figuratively ground into dust. We will need to be wise in our judgment to ensure that the scales of time are correctly balanced to include the Lord, family, work, and wholesome recreational activities. As many have already discovered, there is an increase of happiness in life as we use our time to seek after those things which are ‘virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy’”-Ian S. Ardern
Hope your Sunday is the Best! Love, Joy
Hello! It was good to get your email and hear that all is well!
I recently started a new job.
I love my new job!
Any time I start to learn something new there is a learning curve. You know, the writing notes and steps of how to do this or that, and having some else teaching me. It is a pretty stressed out feeling.
Some days I come into work and I feel good. I can pick up where I left off yesterday. Other days I come in and can’t remember anything I’ve learned…for a minute anyway.
It was on a day like that where I couldn’t remember anything that I realized the learning curve is a circle. I have come around to the beginning and I’m starting over, at least for a few minutes. After I spend some time going over what I’ve learned then it starts to come back to me.
I feel confident for a while, but then I get to learn something else. It basically never ends in life. My life is just full of circles! I am totally ok with this, because I love learning and I love circles. Like ripples on a lake I hope that the learning just get bigger and better.
Hello my sweet fam 🙂
We had a wonderful day today! We returned home from a trip to St. George, and on the way stopped to attend the Manti Temple. It was a great experience!
This beautiful lady that went with us is my niece, Amanda. I love her!
This is the Manti, Utah Temple!! It is one of the only temples that doesn’t have the Angel Moroni on it, but look at the beautiful architecture. I reminds me of a castle.
Each year there is a pageant on the lawn below the temple. It’s free and open to the public. You can check out the website here.
It is beautiful and the furnishings in it are very lovely. They are all from the period which the temple was build. It was announced by President Brigham Young in 1875, and dedicated in 1888. It was a big sacrifice to for the people who built it. You can read about the work that went into building it here.
Here is another great place to hear about the Manti Temple!
I feel so blessed to be able to attend the temple and feel the spirit there.
It was a beautiful day!!!
