Cigarettes & Cow Manure

One day a ten-year old boy came to his father with a solemn face and said "All the boys at school have tried cigarettes but me. I want to try them too. All of my friends are trying them."
The father nodded his head slowly and thought for a moment. " Fine by me - but first, Bring a fork and a plate and come with me out to the barn." The boy did so, and the father put his arm around the his son and they walked out to the barn. Then he scooped up a pile of Cow manure on the plate and stuck the fork in it, offering the plate to his son.
"Why are you giving me a plate of manure? This is disgusting!" Said the son.
"Of course it is," replied the father. "In fact, there are no redeeming qualities to eating cow manure. It is not good for your health, it looks disgusting, and it's bound to make your breath smell very bad. But unlike cigarettes, it's not habit forming."
The boy understood his father's point and never tried cigarettes.

This story can help us understand why we need not to put things in are body. For are body is a temple of god. Lets all obey the Word of Wisdom

A Book With A Promise

The Book of Mormon is another testement of Jesus Christ. It is a ancient record of a people that lived in the Americas around 600 B.C. It talks about and tells us how Christ is are Savior. and Redeemer of the world. It, however does not talke away or add upon the bible.
The Book Of Mormon is here for all of us to learn and grow and to get closser to are Savior. You might ask, how this came to past. The Book of Mormon was translated by the power of God through the prophet Joseph Smith a mondern day prophet. He was commanded to translated and to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ back on the earth. For the Gospel is back once angain. You can find out for yourself to know if the Book of Mormon is true and if the gospel is back today. If you read and pray about the Book of Mormon.
This book has a wonderful message. At the end of this book there is a prophet named Moroni. And he gives a promise at the end of the book.
It is in Moroni 10: 3-5, and it says;
"Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.
And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."
What a wonderful promise to recive if we have faith, asking with a sincere heart, and with real intent, that we will come to a knowlege of the truth by the power of the Holy Ghost. And we can ask God anything we want as long as we do those things that Moroni says.
I can testify to all that this Book Of Mormon is true and that you can also come to know for your self that it is true. For it is a wonderful book and we can recive so much from it.

The Lord Is My Light

When i think of this song, i think of the sun. When you look at the sun it is all nice and bright and I imagine that is how heaven is going to be like. One of my favorite parts in this song is the 3rd verse which says;
"The Lord is my light; the lord is my strengh. I know in his might I'll conquer at length. My weakness in mercy He covers with power and, walking by faith, I am blessed ever hour. "
The reason that i like this verse is because the Lord is always there for us. He has walk the path and he will never give up on us. So why give up on him...He will protect us, help us grow in are weakness. So that He can lead us back to home. For what more can I ask for in this life. To have a brother that has died for me and that will always be there for me. What a wonderful gift to have. It is the best gift ever.
For I know that He lives and guides me along my way. For He is the Only Begotten Son of the Father and He came to save us all. And He will come back one day. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and trying to be like him everyday.

How The Great Guest Came

Before the cathedral in grandeur rose
At Ingelburg where the Danube goes;
Before its forest of silver spire
Went airily up to the clouds and fires;
Before the oak had ready a beam,
While yet the arch was stone and dream --
There where the altar was later laid,
Conrad the cobbler, plied his trade.


It happened one day at the year's white end --
Two neighbors called in on their old-time friend;
And they found the shop, so meager and mean,
Made gay with a hundred boughs of green.
Conrad was stitching with face ashine,
But suddenly stopped as he twitched a twine:
"Old friends, good news! At dawn today,
As the cocks were scaring the night away,
The Lord appeared in a dream to me,
And said, `I am coming your Guest to be!'
So I've been busy with feet astir,
Strewing the floor with branches of fir.
The wall is washed and the shelf is shined,
And over the rafter the holly twined.
He comes today, and the table is spread
With milk and honey and wheaten bread."


His friends went home; and his face grew still
As he watched for the shadow across the sill.     
He lived all the moments o'er and o'er,
When the Lord should enter the lowly door --
The knock, the call, the latch pulled up,
The lighted face, the offered cup.
He would wash the feet where the spikes had been,
He would kiss the hands where the nails went in,
And then at the last would sit with Him
And break the bread as the day grew dim.


While the cobbler mused there passed his pane
A beggar drenched by the driving rain.
He called him in from the stony street
And gave him shoes for his bruised feet.   
The beggar went and there came a crone,
Her face with wrinkles of sorrow sown.
A bundle of faggots bowed her back,
And she was spent with the wrench and rack.
He gave her his loaf and steadied her load
As she took her way on the weary road.


Then to his door came a little child,
Lost and afraid in the world so wild,
In the big, dark world. Catching it up,
He gave it the milk in the waiting cup,
And led it home to its mother's arms,
Out of the reach of the world's alarms.


The day went down in the crimson west
And with it the hope of the blessed Guest,
And Conrad sighed as the world turned gray:
"Why is it, Lord, that your feet delay?
Did you forget that this was the day?"


Then soft in the silence a Voice he heard:
"Lift up your heart, for I have kept my word.
Three times I came to your friendly door;
Three times my shadow was on your floor.
I was the beggar with the bruised feet;
I was the woman you gave to eat;
I was the child on the homeless street!"

Answers to Prayers

We might have a hard time getting are answers from God. But in time he will answer us when we are ready. For it happen to me. This last week i was praying for something to happen. But it didn't come for a while. I was praying to know where i should go to school when i get back home. and it took all week for me to find out. And the Lord answered and told me to go to Wyoming for school. What a remarkable gift we have to receive are own personal revelation to know what the Lord wants us to do and he shows us the way if we only asked. There are no stupid questions to ask him, if it is your desire to know he will tell you what the answer is. Sometimes we wont like the answers that we receive but if we are faithful and do what he asks us to do he will bless us for following his will. For prayer is very important for all of us. He is are Heavenly Father and he wants to hear from all of us. For why not pray and ask him what we need. He knows all.

"Never A Better Hero" - Kenneth Cope

This is one of my favorite songs. It tells that Jesus Christ is the best HERO we can EVER HAVE. And i know that is a true statement. Because he came to save us all. And He will always be my hero, because he loved me so much to die for me and to take my sins in his hands. For he is "Never a Better Hero" I love him and i will always serve him no matter what he asks me to do. For we should always serve him.

The Race of Life

When i think of life a phrase comes in mind and that is Enduring to the End. When this pops in my mind, I think of a race that I am in. A race that makes you a better person. Now most races have points that make you tired or just want to stop. Like if you were racing in the mile, and came to the last lap and that is the point when alot of people are tired and just want to stop. But you have to keep going. The one thing that helps me the most is when i have people cheering for me and it makes me want to finish the race.

Now as we look at the race of are life. Now the race begins when we are born and everyday we need to keep striving to do the best we can. Now as I said about the race in the mile. There are points that come to are life that we need to watch for. Which are the times that we think that we can't make it or can't go on. But we can with the crowd cheering for us and helping us move to the end. Now the crowd can be are Family, Friends, and of course Jesus Christ. For they can all help us to get back. For they want us to do are best and to return to live with are Father in Heaven.

We all have the chance to return to are Heavenly Father , But it is up to us to make the choice to Finish the Race of Life.
