Light the World Day 25 - free clip art

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven"

Matthew 5:16

Merry Christmas friends!

I'm kind of sad to say that today is the last day of the #LighttheWorld

As I was thinking about the theme for today,
it occurred to me how perfect it is. It makes me want to keep the Light the World going through
my every day life. There's no rule that says I can't. There's 
no reason why I can't keep the kindness and giving going for more
than the month of December. I want to be a light that shines for my Father
in Heaven.

I want to be better.

Do better.

And appreciate more.

I hope you have enjoyed the graphics I have shared with you.

Thank you for letting me borrow a few minutes of your day.

Happy Day #25.

Light the World Day 24 - free clip art

"Ye must watch and pray always"

3 Nephi 18:15

I've been able to teach in primary a few times in my life. I have to say that my very favorite
part of primary are the prayers of the children. Those words said
in innocence and pure faith.
And...... sometimes they are so cute that you kinda have to fight not to laugh.

Happy day #24!!!

"I was in prison and ye came unto me"

Matthew 25:36

I have a friend that goes to the prison nearest me every Saturday.
He leads a Bible study there.
I am so impressed by his service. He studies and prepares,
and helps lead those men back to Christ.

Happy Day #23!

Light the World Day 22 - free clip art

"That which ye have seen me do, even that shall ye do"

3 Nephi 27:21

Well my friends, I made it 3 whole weeks before 
I posted late! 
Technically it's still day 22, even if it is an hour before midnight here, so I will take it :) 

When I was thinking about the theme for today,
forgiveness was the first thing that came to mind.

Christ forgave so many.... I figure a handful for me to 
forgive should be doable.

Today... I am working on forgiving someone who has made me 
feel less than enough. Not the easiest thing to do, but I have faith that
Heavenly Father will help me to forgive and have peace in my heart.

Happy Day #22!

Light the World Day 21 - free clip art

"For I was an hungered and ye gave me meat"

Matthew 25:35

If you have read the About the Artist page on my blog,
you know my story.

There was a time where our family needed help and had to ask for it.
It was so hard.

I remember getting the mail in one day, and there was a card waiting for me.

When I opened it, there was a gift card in it for
the local grocery store.

It was such a blessing. I was so very grateful. 

I hope some day I can be on the giving end of a miracle like that for someone else.

Happy Day #21!

Light the World Day 20 - free clip art

"A man's life consisteth not in the abundance
of the things that he possesseth"

Luke 12:15

Today I am going to concentrate on the things that matter most to me,
instead of thinking of the things I want.

Happy Day #20!

Light the World Day 19 - free clip art

"Rejoice and be exceeding glad"

Matthew 5:12

Some days it's hard to be glad, lol. Today I am going to rejoice in the little things.

I'm going to be aware of all of the things Heavenly Father has given me.

And, if all else fails.... I'm going to think and ponder the fact that my 
4 year old grandson asked for toilet plungers for Christmas. 
2 of them to be exact.
He is going to wash the yucky stuff off them in the kitchen sink, and use them to climb the walls in his house.
His mother was not as amused by this as I am.
I'm really struggling with the need to purchase said plungers and gift 
them to my boy on the big day.

Happy Day #19!!!

"Forgive men their trespasses"

Matthew 6:14


I don't know about you, but I am pretty forgiving to others.

Sometimes it might take me a while, but that is the way I am
wired I guess.

My forgiveness issue lies more in forgiving myself.
If I say something and hurt someone's feelings, etc.,  I can replay that moment in 
my mind FOREVER. 

Today, I am going to try and let go of some of that.

Happy Day #18 my friends! <3

"Ye shall meet together oft"

3 Nephi 18:22

I taught primary for a bit a few years ago.

All the good stuff happens in primary!

The spirit with all the little ones is so sweet. It's also where you are gifted with
all of the details of their lives at home :) Gotta love it!

Happy Day #17!!!

Light the World Day 16 - free clip art

"I was naked and ye clothed me"

Matthew 25:36

Here in Utah, where I live, the LDS church has a thrift
store. It's called Deseret Industries or DI.
We are able to donate unneeded clothing and household items. 
The items are then sold at thrift store prices, and also sent to countries that need them.

It's a pretty awesome place to go!

Happy Day #16!

Light the World Day 15 - free clip art

"Blessed are the merciful"

Matthew 5:7

Be merciful.

I think the theme for today is pretty much 
the general theme throughout the #LighthteWorld

It's about being kind and loving. Being Christlike.

I'm so far from perfect.
But... the best part of that is that even little things
can be an improvement for me, and keep  me on that path.

Happy Day #15!

"For where your treasure is, there your heart be also"

Matthew 6:21

My treasure is my family.

I sure am grateful for them all, and am so blessed.

I don't know what I would ever do without them.

Happy Day #14!

Light the World day 13 - free clip art

"All thing whatsoever that ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them"

Matthew 7:4

Kindness does matter.

Because we cannot know what is happening to others, 
what trials they have, how they are being tested.... A kind word
or action could literally alter their whole day.

I will be keeping this in mind today.

Happy Day #13!

Light the World Day 12 - free clip art

"Blessed are those that mourn"

Matthew 5:4

This is such a busy time of year for me. 

My kids are still young enough that our house is buzzing with
excitement for the upcoming holidays.

I sometimes forget that there are those around me that dread the
coming of Christmas. This year I am going to make a purposeful effort 
to include them, and love them.

I hope you will too!

Happy Day 12!

Light the World Day 11 - free clip art

"I was a stranger and ye took me in"

Matthew 25:35

We have 4 such strangers in our house. Four furry babies.

All are rescues.

As soon as I read the topic  for today, they were the first thing that came to mind.

Sometimes strangers are just friends we have yet to meet.

Happy Day #11!

Light the World day 10 - free clip art

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life"

John 5:39

I had to think about this one for about 3 seconds, lol. 

Today I am going to give out one of my customized Book of Mormons.
(If you haven't seen them, look under the Book of Mormon Journaling tab at the top of this blog)

I keep some made up and waiting. The missionaries hand them out
when they have a young person that might enjoy one.

Happy Day #10!
