Happy Birthday CC

It is going around that we are in for a major snow storm Friday and Saturday.  After the temple today we stopped at Home Depot to get some things for the Barlow and everyone in the store was carrying out bags of ice melt and they announced that they did not have any more snow shovels.  So people are taking the prediction serious.  I am glad it is on the weekend and we don't have major commitments.  We had our shovels and ice melt.

Our new stake president is such a great man.  Every time we teach he comes in and talks with the kids.  He came in after class today and we asked him if he wanted to say anything and he sat with them and told them about the 99 and 1 principle.  He said what if the brethren announced tomorrow that the church was going to change something and you didn't agree with them changing that you wouldn't leave the church.  Then he went around the room and said tell me something you love about the church.  Each person  named something different.  Then he told them you wouldn't leave the church and all the things you love about the church because of 1 thing.  He told of a time when he had a question and he just had to accept that 1 thing on faith until many years later he was reading in the scriptures and found his answer.  His answer had been there all along.  So don't leave the 99 things you love about the church for the 1 thing you don't understand

Happy 12th Birthday to my beautiful granddaughter.

  1. I really like the 99 to 1 principle. It's a great way to look at it.
