It snowed yesterday and I had the funnest time looking at the snowflakes. I wanted to take a picture of some of the snowflakes, but it didn't work out. It amazes me all of the unique designs of each snowflake. I just love Heavenly Father and the creations he has given us. It makes me think of the Primary song

Words and Music by Clara W. McMaster, b. 1904

Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.

He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him reverently
For all his creations, of which I'm a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.

It is a really good song. This past stake conference it was a area one and I sang along with others this song. It was neat because the version we sang had three verses. The one was about the Savior and his atonement. It is a very powerful thing the atonement. I sure do love Heavenly Father and his son, our brother, Jesus Christ. Have a wonderful day everyone.

combination of things

So recently or maybe not so recently I have noticed how people look like other people I know. I think it is one friend when it isn't the friend that I thought it was. It can make for funny moments in life. I find lots of people that are look a likes but are not twins.

So I have been thinking about the atonement recently and I am grateful for it. I am grateful that we have a loving brother that made it possible to return to our Heavenly Father no matter what we have done. He can help us to overcome our trials through the atonement and I am eveer so grateful for the love of a Heavenly Father. At times I think that I can't do overcome something but through Christ these things are possible.

Time for rejuvination
It has been nice to have a break from school. It brings back energy from doing school work in a semester. It was great to see family and friends and have lots of fun. I am grateful that there was a time for the break from school, but I am ready to get back to school.
Have a good day my friends.

Words of Wisdom

The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
