On Christmas Eve Eve


I want to wish you all a joyful holiday and a prosperous New Year. Here's a quote from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, quoting President Monson, to get the year started out right:

When our wagon gets stuck in the mud, God is much more likely to assist the man who gets out to push than the man who merely raises his voice in prayer—no matter how eloquent the oration. President Thomas S. Monson put it this way: “It is not enough to want to make the effort and to say we’ll make the effort. . . . It’s in the doing,thinking, that we accomplish our goals. If we constantly put our goals off, we will never see them fulfilled.”


So, let's all get to it in the new year! Let's see some great things happen in 2010!

I love that quote! It's true: you have to make things happen in life. You can't sit around waiting for them to happen. Great way to put it.

Merry Christmas!

Right on Angie. Here's to lots of books in 2010.

And just how did my word verification be "bless"?
Did you do that?

David J. West said...

And now its "pringle"

Angie said...

Thanks all! "Bless." That's cool. "Pringle." Sounds yummy. I get some funny verification words sometimes.

I really like your blog. I am a first-time visitor, but I observe every site I submit a comment to. I have a humor blog myself, which I hope to be a top place for people to come and laugh. Life is hard enough and you sometimes need to just sit back and laugh a little.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread traffic around to each. Keep up the good work. You can contact me by simply placing a comment on my site.

Happy Holidays!
