a NEW Thursday thought


I love this advice! Also, I think I love the idea of collecting photographs of those ‘moments’ – because I’m prone to forgetting them unless I have some sort of remembrance of them.  For instance, I’m sure I would have totally forgotten the moment I noticed this sunset if I wouldn’t have had my camera in my car and taken the time to stop and take this photo! I need to take the time to snap more photos with and of the people I love and cherish too! So I guess I’d say that collecting the ‘things’ – those photographs that help me remember those moments is ok.  Right?

Have a great day! Do or photography or start collecting something NEW!

a NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon


Happy Sunday!  What do you think of this leaning palm tree?  I’m not really sure how it manages to keep alive.  It certainly isn’t perfect, but apparently it keeps struggling onward…apparently it’s not a quitter or gives up easily.

Have you ever wanted to give up? The scriptures are full of accounts of men and women who showed great courage to do whatever the Lord commanded, even when the tasks seemed impossible, even when they may have wanted to give up.  Read more at “Never, Never, Never Give Up” by Sister Mary N. Cook.

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!


a NEW Friday iPhone photo


Ok….this iPhone photo was taken out my car window (obviously dirty window…sorry for the smudge).  Sadly, it does NOT do this sunset justice, because you really can’t see the texture that was really in the sky that evening.  The cloud ripples that night were truly amazing!  But at least I had my phone on me and I have this photo to remind me of that amazing scene I witnessed.  Have a great Friday!  Do or Learn something NEW!
