GIVEAWAY! HURRY!!!

Today a family in my apt moved out. On the first of the month, I stopped by with a bag a treats. I ONLY did that because I have been feeling for over a week that maybe the mother was lonely... maybe she needed a friend, maybe she needed some homemade bread. I don't know. But I do know that she looked like she had been crying when I knocked on her door at 9:30pm at night to give her my bag of treats.

I mention this incident for a few reasons. Mostly because I feel like I could have made a difference for her. But I didn't. I didn't make a difference in her life at all. I also wonder if I had been paying closer attention to the spirit, if I would have acted sooner. Did I miss it because I was canning applesauce too much and was focused on that? How about listening to my favorite young wizarding student at Hogwarts on cd? I wonder if it would have been different had I been listening to spiritual music? You see, I had lost the remote to our smart TV. And if any of you have a smart TV, you know that it is pretty useless without the remote. So, no Pandora MoTab station for me. So, thats been where I have been at. Wallowing in "What if's". Bleh.


Good thing GraceHill Media sent me this CD. Its the soundtrack for Grace Unplugged and I love it. Its uplifting and I could listen to it all day. Oh wait, I have. Over and over again. So leave a comment and the winner will be chosen via random.org. What do you to stay inspired?

I'm sure it did mean something to her to get those treats! I love to listen to spiritual music as well. It's just so powerful. Also, when I'm driving, I'll listen to a conference talk and then have the radio off after it's over just so I can think about what I just listened to :)

That is such a pretty song. I love it!

beautiful song but I loved your comments more. You are amazing to always think of others even if you think you did to little to late. Prayer and being still throughout the day helps me but spiritual music brings the spirit immediately and is a great way too like you said.

You are awesome. I'm sure that bag of treats meant a lot to her. I try to keep my life as simple and uncluttered as possible so that I have time and flexibility in my schedule and so I'm calm enough to listen to the spirit.

I also love spiritual music! And, guess what? Sherrie, the lady that delivered the bread to Tiffany in Pres. Monson's story, is in my stake now! We watched conference together yesterday.

Also, every act of service you make will bless you and the person who receives it! :) thanks for your example to think of others!

Well, we have had Christmas decorations up since Nov 1 at my house. I decided there was no point in putting away Halloween to just move all ...
