Peace

Peace

Occasionally, a bird will fly into our front window. We love birds, so it is always a sad experience when this happens. I don’t wash that window very often to cut down on bird injuries. (That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.) Sometimes the birds aren’t hurt and fly away. Sometimes they are dazed, rest for a time on our porch, and then fly away. Sometimes they are seriously injured and we try to give them aid. Sometimes they hit hard enough to lose their lives.

Stay Strong

Stay Strong

I woke up on a hot summer morning thinking, “Can I make it through the day?” I don’t do well in the heat, and the forecast for this particular morning was 110⁰F (43⁰C). I logged onto social media to cheer myself up. The first thing I saw was an “invitation” to participate in a form of protest at Church against an action that a stake president (Church leader over several congregations in a geographical area) took in some stake far away from my own.

I’m a Pioneer

I’m a Pioneer

July 24th is Pioneer Day, when members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) celebrate the arrival of the pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley. It used to be that most members of the Church had pioneer ancestors, but the Church has grown significantly.

Learning From Our Heritage

Learning From Our Heritage

My dad used to tell us to learn from the mistakes of others. He warned us that we would make enough mistakes on our own without repeating the mistakes of others. I think I can take that one step further. What if we learned good character traits of others so that we can model our own good behavior after those of others? Over the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about what I’ve learned from my heritage—not just my own family, but the generations of the past.
