Family Home Evening, Monday, April 28, 2008

Happy Monday and Family Home Evening,

What a fantastic spring day we had today! There is something so wonderful about spring green, and pink, and white . . . .

The weather also makes you want to go out and do something--not like we haven't been doing things all winter--but all the changes encourages us to make changes too.

Message: The joy of accomplishment makes most other pleasures seem empty and trivial by comparison. Anything you accomplish by your own effort is truly yours, and the delightful fulfillment it brings can never be taken from you.

Rather than worrying about what you'll get, focus on what you can create. What things of value are you creating right now?

Want to feel great about yourself? Then set a goal and accomplish it. Remember that you don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour. Mom is completing all kinds of projects at the MacKay College of Education, including a new edition of the magazine that she edits. Dad got his grades in at BYU and UVU and finished the syllabi for the new courses he teaches at both universities this week. Mom and Dad celebrated Monday by eating junk food for lunch, pictures above.

Scripture for the day: Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. (D&C 64:33)

Love, Mom and Dad

PS: James and Amanda! How about a visit?

Mrs. Valentine, I hope your son marries someone who truly loves him and your family. I think you are so unique! I also have enjoyed you sharing your spirituality. I am a Baptist and the news has not been so friendly lately for Mormans. I am glad to hear your goodness and love for God! I have three children and a wonderful husband! It is wonderful to see you embrace al the goodness God has given you!
