We’ll see how this goes. I know it’s been a long while since I posted here. I needed to do some “inside work” for a while, but this blog is never far from my thoughts.
This blog has always been a rather hodgepodge thing – a blend of my daily life (daily being purely subjective!), and some of my spiritual thoughts and experiences – I keep thinking about changing it, and becoming more focused, because that’s what makes a successful blog, right?!? But that’s not happening today, at any rate.
Last year in church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) we studied the New Testament in the Bible. It was so wonderful and I learned a lot by using the Come Follow Me study guide. I made a lot of notes in my electronic scriptures, but I didn’t keep much of a hand written study journal.
This year we are studying The Book of Mormon in the Come Follow Me program and I’ve started using a new journal edition of the Book of Mormon for part of my studies. It’s fun and I’m learning on a different level.
(OK, we are only in the first week of the year, so I’ve hardly been at it long enough to call it a pattern, but still.) I wish I’d done this with the New Testament. Ah, well, next time.
I’m not really going to spell out a lot of my thoughts on my reading (at least today), but I thought I’d share some pictures of what I’m doing. Maybe it will inspire you to do your own thing. Or maybe it will inspire you to just Keep It Simple Sugar. 😉
If you want my thoughts on what I’ve read, study my photos, they’re in there.
Highs and Lows of the Day
Low: I woke up with an extremely sore back. I had all kinds of plans for the day, and I was feeling super discouraged. I got on my knees and prayed for help. The answer that came to me was, “Just do what you can in each moment. Don’t worry about the rest.”
High: I actually got quite a bit done today. I managed to scrub the shower while I was was in it. I cleared my desk so I could use my computer and sit in the chair (BIG WIN!), I did some laundry, and I got to spend some time doing some scripture study and journaling. All because I just focused on what I COULD do in each moment. That’s happiness!
