“Remembering without ceasing your work of , and of love, and of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father”
-1 thessalonians 1:3
What a beautiful scripture that works well with today’s event – Labor Day.
Have a great time today, while still thanking God for this country, and thanking all those hard workers/soliders that have made what we now know as America.
Oh my goodness! Today (well technically July the 27th which was yesterday) is Marigold Girls 2nd year anniversary!
I just want to give a big thank you to the Marigold Girls Team because without the amazing support and inspirational posts they give, this blog wouldn’t be the same. I also want to thank all of you who have been reading our posts, and have shared it with others.
Looking forward to blogging on Marigold Girls for many years to come!
Please feel free to comment below what you think would be a nice addition to Marigold Girls, and what has been your favorite part so far. 🙂
Oh my goodness today is Independence Day! America has turned 242 years old! Today is my birthday as some of you may know, so I am now 15. I am so grateful to be in this country…God bless America!
I found this image where it shows how many soldiers died (or got severely injured) for us, and to think of how many families lost their fathers, brothers, sisters, etc. We are so blessed, to know that we will see our family again in heaven, through the plan of salvation.
May this day on Memorial Day be a day to count our many blessings, and to remember those who serve to protect our country and our freedom…
A lot of times in life some things that are actually really simple or unimportant or not that big of a deal can stress us out. I speak from experience…I have had multiple times where I’ve stressed out about something and then later afterwards I wondered why I didn’t just chill.
I came across this saying or quote that says “If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes upset by it”
President Gordon B. Hinckley said “Be believing. Be happy. Don’t get discouraged. Things will work out.”
This is easier said than done, but I’d like to challenge you all this week to remember this 5 by 5 rule and the words of Gordon B. Hinckley. Whenever something stressful comes up or you get worked up about something that’s not that big of a deal, try to remember these good words of advice and incorporate it into your situation whether its in school, decisions, opportunities, etc. Know that things will work out as long as you believe, stay positive, and are trying to follow Christ.
Today is the day the Jesus was resurrected and conquered death! As we finish general conference, let’s look for ways we can inspire others.
Thomas S. Monson died yesterday (January 2nd 2018, 11:46pm). He was such a great leader to us as a prophet. He died at the age of 90 yrs.
Thank you Thomas S. Monson for all that you did for us.
I took this picture in the Nauvoo Temple grounds on our family vacation this past summer. I love this quote by Jose L. Alonso from our most recent General Conference and thought it fits it well.
It’s so true! When we serve and forgive others it will give us strength to overcome our trials and be healed.
Don’t you just love the smell of Autumn air? I look forward to it every year. One of my favorite parts of this season is to wear all of my fall fashions…Especially boots! Who does not like to wear them? They are so fun!
I think this season represents getting renewed, and having a second chance. The leaves fall down from the tree, and after winter comes, spring arises! Then the trees will bring new leaves and blossoms! It’s such a wonderful thing isn’t it?
What’s your favorite part about fall? Put it in the comments below!
Living worthy doesn’t mean we have to be perfect. In Sunday School we talked about ordinances and covenants and the celestial kingdom and the ordinances you need to have done to be able to enter it. Somewhere in our discussion (I think it was when we were reading the First Presidency Message in For the Strength of Youth) we came across something that said
“We should always live worthy to enter the temple. The Lord will bless us for our efforts”
