Remember, Remember

Throughout the text that is known to the world as the Book of Mormon, the word "remember" is often used. It can, if we think about it, be the link between all the prophets in the text. They will ofter tell the people that they need to remember what promises that that they have made with the Lord and the promises that the Lord has made with them. They are also told told to remember the words of the former prophets. Sadly, they hardly ever remembered, and it often led to their destruction.

At this time of the year, I would like to remind all followers of Jesus of Nazareth to remember him and to think on his birth, life, mission, and sacrifice. The gifts, decorations, and other  things are things that we may enjoy for the moment, but because of what he did man has the opportunity of eternal life. So I say again "Remember, Remember."

New Year's Resolutions

This post is going to very quick, but I do believe that it will help everyone who reads it. So just keep reading...

Every year at this time of year, people begin making resolutions that they hope to do in the upcoming year. Everyone is excited and determined, and then the new year comes around and then nothing happens. People get off to good starts, but then they have a slip up and then they throw in the towel. Needless to say, because of this many resolutions are repeated year after year, but they never become true realities

The problem is that what people know is not reflected in what they do. They know that change takes time, but yet they fully expect that on January 1st of whatever year they will spring forth like Athena from Zeus' head; full grown in the person they want to be. Yet, like all good change, New Year's resolutions require time and patience.

So, here is a suggestion. Make between 2 and 5 resolutions, but give yourself the whole year to achieve. Look back on December 31st to see if you have achieved your goals. With time, patience, and focus, you will get there. I guarantee it.

Sad Day

Today is conference championship weekend, which unfortunately means that the regular season is over and that the season is coming to a close. What do I have to live for for the next nine months? Oh wait there is the recruiting season. That ought to help.
