And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones; And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.
Today one of the speakers in the meeting I was attending was commenting on how for the past several years he had made it a goal to write more regularly in his journal, especially noting blessings in his life and the lives of those around him . . .(like my goal that I have not been doing so well in). He mentioned how he had also been thinking of a scripture that really stood out to him each day, and recording it with his journal entry. It was not necessarily a scripture that he had read during the day, but one that just fit the day and what he had been dealing with or thinking of during the day. So . . . . .
Today Marissa taught our CTR class lesson in Primary on the Word of Wisdom. This is one subject that the 4 and 5 year olds in our class already seem to know quite well. Their parents have taught them to eat good healthy foods and to avoid substances that are harmful to them. It made me glad to know that at this young age they already know these truths. We talked about how having wisdom means being smart. They also had A LOT of fun feeding small pictures of healthy foods to our monkey puppet. It was a good day.
Today I am grateful for modern revelation and for prophets and parents who have taught us how to care for our bodies and our health. So . . . eat your fruits & veggies & grains, limit your meats, drink your milk and your juice and water, get plenty of sleep and rise early and excercise.
And Smile be Happy!
Cease to be idle; cease to be unclean; cease to find fault one with another; cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated. And above all things, clothe yourselves with the bond of charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond of perfectness and peace. Pray always, that ye may not faint, until I come. Behold, and lo, I will come quickly, and receive you unto myself. Amen.
