Light the World Day 12 - free clip art

"Blessed are those that mourn"

Matthew 5:4

This is such a busy time of year for me. 

My kids are still young enough that our house is buzzing with
excitement for the upcoming holidays.

I sometimes forget that there are those around me that dread the
coming of Christmas. This year I am going to make a purposeful effort 
to include them, and love them.

I hope you will too!

Happy Day 12!

Light the World Day 11 - free clip art

"I was a stranger and ye took me in"

Matthew 25:35

We have 4 such strangers in our house. Four furry babies.

All are rescues.

As soon as I read the topic  for today, they were the first thing that came to mind.

Sometimes strangers are just friends we have yet to meet.

Happy Day #11!

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life"

John 5:39

I had to think about this one for about 3 seconds, lol. 

Today I am going to give out one of my customized Book of Mormons.
(If you haven't seen them, look under the Book of Mormon Journaling tab at the top of this blog)

I keep some made up and waiting. The missionaries hand them out
when they have a young person that might enjoy one.

Happy Day #10!

Light the World Day 9 - free clip art

"I was sick and ye visited me"

Matthew 25:36

The theme for today means so much to me!

This last July I had to have emergency surgery. I had a hernia that had to be fixed immediately (I had had this issue for about 13 years). My insides had become tangled up like a big ball of yarn, and it was so painful that I made my husband take me to the ER in the middle of the night. When they did a CT scan to see what was going on, they also found 2 golf ball sized masses growing on my colon. Surgery was preformed that afternoon, and 12 inches of my colon was removed.

It all happened so fast, that I didn't have much time to think about it, and it still seems so unreal.

I am so grateful for those who took time to come to the hospital to see me. 

Who cared for me.

Who knew I needed love and support.

So very grateful.

All the prayers and wishes from people all over the world. So humbled.

It has made me want to be a better friend. A better me.

Happy Day #9!

Light the World day 8 - free clip art

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, 
do good to them that hate you, and
pray for them that despitefully use you"

Matthew 5:44


It's pretty powerful isn't it.

Today I will be adding a few things in to my daily prayers.

I will ask Heavenly Father to help me be more loving to those that may be 
having a hard time loving me. To bless them, and look after them.

Happy day #8!

Light the World day 7 - free clip art

"Suffer the little children to come unto me"

Mark  10:14

As a mom, and a mimi (grandmother), I feel like the best way I can serve in this theme, is to teach my children and my babies about Jesus, and the gospel. 

I will take them to church, and have family prayer. We can read the scriptures, and have family night.

I will do my best to show through example how to love Jesus and Heavenly Father.

Happy day #7!

Light the World Day 6 - free clip art

"Judge not, that ye may be judged"

Matthew 7:1

How peaceful and uplifting would our daily lives be,
without assumptions and snap judgements made against others.

Lets go forth today with some love in our hearts.

Smile a little more.

Hold open a door.

Give others a chance.

Happy Day #6!

Light the world Day 5 - free clip art

"Honour thy Father and thy Mother"

Matthew 15:4

This is a tough one for me. Both of my parents have passed away.

Today I will honor my parents by being the best parent and person I can be.

The best way I can honor them is by trying extra hard to model myself after the examples that they were
and still are to me, and my family.

I miss them daily, and am so grateful to know that I will some day see them again.

Happy Day #5!

"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self"

Matthew 22:39

When I think of loving my neighbor, I think of forgiveness, tolerance, patience,
and compassion. 

Let's go forth today and remember these words
as we interact with those around us.

Let's make our world peaceful and kind.

Happy Day #4!

"I was thirsty and ye gave me drink"

Matthew 25:35

Today also happens to be my Mom's birthday.

I am going to go through a drive through and pay for the person behind me.

I'm pretty sure that'd make my momma happy. 

Happy day 2 my friends!

"Freely ye have received, freely give"

Matthew 10:8

I love this one.

"Freely ye have received"

Boy, have I. 

I am a huge believer in giving back. After all, we were sent to earth to serve others.

"Because I have been given much, I too, must give"

Go forth and do some good people!

You will be blessed for it in ways you will never imagine.

Happy Day 1!

I can be Self-reliant work sheet

Yup.... one more lesson meant for me, lol. 
Here's the hand out I came up with for this one:

Here are the treats I am going to hand out. I put my lifesavers candy in the long pretzel rod bags and added the topper to them. You could attach one to the tag and hand that out instead.

Thy will be done bookmark freebie

It's my turn to teach this week!
I'm pretty sure I was given this lesson for a reason, lol.
My lesson is on patience. I have absolutely none!
I want to go with trusting in God's plan, and having patience for my spin on it.

I came across "Thy will be done" by Kyle Vorkink on the "Ask-2017 Mutual Album"
Here's the link to listen to it on YouTube
I am going to play it for the girls, so I made em a quick bookmark with the lyrics on it. 
I LOVE this song!

Feel free to use it if you'd like!

To emphasize the Patience aspect of the lesson, I added a tail to some blow pops (because you have to be patient to get to the center). The tags says: "Patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet" - Aristotle
