a NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon

Happy Sunday!

Oh, how life is getting in the way of my photography habits!  And it’s SO beautiful out there!  So many rich, autumn colors!  I had a brief outing a few days ago, but I want  need to get out more frequently!  All the pumpkins, the mums, the fall foliage  – oh so beautiful and fun to shoot!

Well today’s quote reminds me of people that I know, who love and live life to it’s fullest.  They’re an awesome example to me.  I genuinely love life too; but the people I’m thinking of seem to treat life as a gift.  It is precious to them. Thinking of life as a gift reminds me of a song the young people in our church sing:

My life is a gift; my life has a plan.

My life has a purpose; in heav’n it began.

My choice was to come to this lovely home on earth

And seek for God’s light to direct me from birth.

OR…taking the advice from Leonardo Di Caprio (well, really, his character on Titanic) is good too:

 

Lastly, for this Sunday sermon, I’ll share a fabulous talk entitled “Come What May, and Love It”  (Link HERE)

In case you don’t have time to go read the entire talk, I’ll add some highlights below (but I hope you do go read it – I think you’ll love the blind date story!!! Haha!):

  • The way we react to adversity can be a major factor in how happy and successful we can be in life.
  • Learn to laugh
  • Seek for an eternal perspective
  • Understand the principle of compensation
  • Trust in our heavenly father and in his son, Jesus Christ

 

That is it for today!  Go do something NEW and live life and LOVE it!
