Thought two for Tuesday:

Too good not to share:
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough. My companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid for the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me, and when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me, my banner will be clear."
-Henry B. Eyring

April 20, 2011 Elder in the Making:

I love doing ode's to the people i love. Todays ode is for my little string bean Spencer Allan Dahl! He was called to serve in the Independence, Missouri Mission and leaves April 20 of THIS YEAR! I can't believe that he is going on a mission and that he is leaving so soon! He has been my pal my whole life and i am so glad my parents decided to bring him to our family so i could have a friend to play with the rest of my life! I love you Spencer and couldn't be more proud that you and worthy and ready to change peoples lives in Missouri!

Spiritual thought for Tuesday:

"I don't worry too much about the future, and I don't worry too much about the past.
The past is gone, and you can't change, can't correct it.
The future, you can anticipate it, but you can't necessarily do very much about it.
It is the present you have to deal with.
Reach out for every good opportunity to do what you ought to do."

-President Gordon B. Hinkley
