Apologies for the long absence! Holidays started and I took the chance to step back from responsibility for a while.
The spiritual thought for tonight is from Dieter F Uchtdorf – and, no, I didn’t just pick the first image on google images because it was there, it really spoke volumes to me at this time so I hope it does for you too!
President Uchtdorf always manages to put a perspective on things for me, and I am ever grateful for him and for the guidance I receive in the words he speaks.
Thanks for checking the page out ladies and gents. Goodnight!
Just a reminder about our Ceilidh folk dance tonight, if you can make it that would be wonderful, and donations for the AED are always appreciated! There’s a live band and light refreshments, and best of all great company. Hope to see you there!
The fundraiser day was a blast, thanks to those who came! We managed to earn a little more towards installing the AED in our local area which is fantastic news. I even have a few pictures for you all:
It really was great fun! We have another event coming up again at our chapel, a celtic folk dance night called a ceilidh for all to join. There will be a live band, light refreshments and great company. There is NO entry fee but we will be collecting donations for the AED so if you can, it would be wonderful to have a contribution. Please also if you plan to attend and have any severe food allergies please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure a safe evening.
Now for our scripture quote, this is Alma 37:35 :
O, remember, my son, and alearnbwisdom in thy cyouth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.
I think this one is beautiful. We shouldn’t wait for wisdom to come to us, we need to search it out whilst we still can and blessings both in life and from heaven will help us throughout. Thanks for taking a look at the blog 🙂
Welcome to Woodsetton Ward’s blog, administrator here! Just going to give a quick friendly welcome and reminder for Monday; our chapel is going to be open to everyone and the open day is going to be good fun, plus it’s raising awareness for a good cause to the local area. Info for it is on the previous post 🙂
Anyway, I listened to a talk from the latest general conference by Becky Craven called ‘Careful vs Casual’. I know this is long for a first quote but I felt inspired by this whole paragraph so here it is:
‘ There is a careful way and a casual way to do everything, including living the gospel. As we consider our commitment to the Savior, are we careful or casual? Because of our mortal nature, don’t we sometimes rationalize our behavior, at times referring to our actions as being in the gray, or mixing good with something that’s not so good? Anytime we say, “however,” “except,” or “but” when it applies to following the counsel of our prophet leaders or living the gospel carefully, we are in fact saying, “That counsel does not apply to me.” We can rationalize all we want, but the fact is, there is not a right way to do the wrong thing!‘
