a NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon

goodmorning

Happy Sunday!

I love it when I actually have my camera in my car when I see such beauty as this sunrise. I was on my way to work and just had to pull over to get this pic. I agree that “God is the best artist”!

For today’s short sermon, I’ll simple paste a few items from THIS excellent speech by President Deiter F. Uchtdorf:

The Bottom Line

This topic of judging others could actually be taught in a two-word sermon. When it comes to hating, gossiping, ignoring, ridiculing, holding grudges, or wanting to cause harm, please apply the following:  Stop it!

***

Is this difficult to do?

Yes, of course.

How is it done? Through the love of God.

***

My dear brothers and sisters, consider the following questions as a self-test:

Do you harbor a grudge against someone else?

Do you gossip, even when what you say may be true?

Do you exclude, push away, or punish others because of something they have done?

Do you secretly envy another?

Do you wish to cause harm to someone?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to apply the two-word sermon from earlier: stop it!

a NEW Thursday Thought

Happy Thursday!  This quote reminded me of another great one from a book I read a while ago (previous post HERE): “People distance themselves from heaven, then complain that heaven is distant”.

Have a great day!

a NEW simple photo and a short Sunday sermon

Happy Sunday!   I’m really, really, REALLY late to Kim Klassen’s ‘Simple Pear’ link up.  Too late to link up…but I saw so many beautifully simple pear photos, that I was totally inspired!  I just had to find time to make it to the market for pears. :o)

I have to say I’m in love with simplicity.  Simple still-life photos are the best!  Simplicity in other areas of life is also SO important.  For my short Sunday sermon, please  watch this message:  EVEN  A CHILD CAN UNDERSTAND…because God would indeed be unjust if the gospel were accessible only to an intellectual elite.  HE keeps it simple!

Have a great week ahead!  Do or learn something NEW!
