Family Home Evening, Monday, April 14, 2008

The blessing took place in the Clark's home ward.

Margaret Valentine Clark shares the same name as her great-grandmother, Shauna's mother, Margaret Tholen Burgon, a wonderful woman. Grandmother Shauna Burgon Valentine sewed the beautiful dress, as she has done for all of her granddaughters.
Happy Monday to Everyone,

We had a wonderful day Sunday. Topher gave Margaret Valentine Clark a beautiful blessing. It was a warm, sunny day. After church and the baby's blessing, we had a delicious meal in Highland. Thanks to everyone. We were thinking of y James and Amanda and wishing you could have been with us, too. We are glad that James is home safely from the Maroon5 Asia tour, and we wish Amanda best wishes on her upcoming fashion show in Nashville.

And now for the thought for the week:

It comes back...

You have no way of knowing how or when all the things you do will come back to you. What you can know is that they will.
Some obscure and seemingly useless fact you learn today could end up playing a major role in your life next week, or five years from now. Some small favor that you do tomorrow may come back to you in a few months as a grand opportunity. You never know exactly how life will reflect back the face you present to it. Yet eventually, and quite faithfully, it does come back to you.

The value that you put into life becomes the value that you experience from life. The more love you give, the more love you are able to know.

Your words do not end when you speak them, and your actions do not stop when you've completed them. They go out into life and begin connecting you with the people, circumstances and things that resonate with those words and actions of yours.

Live as though the things you do, in one way or another, will come back to you. For you can be certain that they will.

Scripture for the day:

Let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. (1 Jn. 4:7)

Have a fantastic week-we love you,

Mom and Dad, Robert and Shauna Valentine
