My Favorite Wife II

(: My Bedtime Snack :)

My Favorite Wife

I often tell Debbie she's my favorite wife and she is.

Yesterday I looked around for cinnamon rolls after reading Sue's blog and Debbie's response. There were no cinnamon rolls to be found. However, Debbie noticed my longing look and there were cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning.

Yesterday was not a loss though. During the day my favorite wife went out and picked some apples and made the best apple pie. She than sat with me and watched a movie while we had hot apple pie and ice cream with fresh homemade caramel on top.

Debbie's definitely my favorite wife.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ

This was an interesting election year. Especially for Mormons in California. Following the request of the Prophet to support Proposition 8, most members worked hard to successfully rally the cause. However, the news did their best to find those who disagreed.

I read an excellent article in Meridian Magazine the other day. The article quoted a talk Elder Neal A. Maxwell gave at BYU in 1978 about our day. In part it reads,
"“Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions.

This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . .

Each of us needs to decide for ourselves what we will do when those in the great and spacious building point their fingers at us. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 I hope to ever keep it that way.
