The Last Three Crazy Days

This post is short and sweet. I encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time. Can you believe how time flies while you are not keeping an eye on what time it is?

Can you believe how time flies while you are keeping busy?
Can you believe how time flies while you are having fun?

Can you believe how time goes slow while you keep looking at the time for a few minutes?
How was your day today? Did you do some service today? Did you made a new friend?
Did you go and visit someone who you have not seen for awhile?

I would like to share with you, my last three days and it is best described that each of those days was crazy days.
Last Friday was crazy day for me because I spent some time with my Dad, I placed the order of a cake for Elder Wehi's Homecoming Party, I did some shopping and a few other things. Wow! Time flies while I am keeping busy and time also flies when I am driving to places.

Last Saturday was another crazy day for me because I took photos of a wedding from 10:30am to 7:30pm. I had some break but man, it was full on. I remembered my face was red and both of my arms was red like sunburnt.

Yesterday was another crazy day for me because I started off the day with sleeping in and then watched the last hour of General Women's Conference LIVE. I eventually went to Church from 1pm to 4pm. The weather was crazy. It rained during a close friend's sacrament and most members looked at the windows instead of paying attention to the speaker. Oh well.

It is good to have crazy days in life because sometimes those crazy days makes great memories to look back on. I do not have much else to say.

Don't Be Busy, Be Productive

This post is short and sweet. It feels like forever whenever I do not post on this blog often. Oops. I have been so busy. Please forgive me. I would like to share with you some of the things that I have been doing lately.

I must admit that I have been playing random notes on my flute to any songs that I love hearing over and over again, I have been applying for some jobs, I learned to put more faith and trust in Heavenly Father, I have been organising some photo shoot sessions, I focused a lot of my time away from home for the past almost four weeks or so, I have been striving my best to go to the Temple often and the list goes on. 

I really love the Image that I have shared for this post. If you can not see the Image what it says, it says "Don't Be Busy Be Productive
What does Don't be busy, be productive means to you? I would like to share with you, what it means to me and that was "you are not always busy, you are always being productive!!!" I encourage you to think about and answer the following two questions in your own time.

Have you ever think about and consider what choices you are going to make for next week? 
Have you ever reflect on your choices that you have made during the week?

I am so grateful about everything that my Dad has done for me, I am glad that he has put up with me driving to places, and it has been wonderful whenever I spend some of my time with my Dad. spending time with my Dad whenever I did.

We Are Children of God

First and foremost, I would like you to always remember that we are all children of God. This post is based on an October 1998 General Conference talk called "We Are Children of God" by Elder Russell M. Nelson. I would like to share with you some highlights what he mentions.

Elder Nelson mentions, “The Body:-

The marvel of our physical bodies is often overlooked. Who has not encountered feelings of low self-esteem because of physique or appearance?

Many people wish their bodies could be more to their liking. Some with naturally straight hair want it curly. Others with curly hair want it straight. Occasionally some ladies, believing that “gentlemen prefer blonds,” become “decided blonds.”

Your body, whatever its natural gifts, is a magnificent creation of God. It is a tabernacle of flesh a temple for your spirit. A study of your body attests to its divine design.

Physical Limitations:- 

For reasons usually unknown, some people are born with physical limitations. Specific parts of the body may be abnormal. Regulatory systems may be out of balance.
And all of our bodies are subject to disease and death. Nevertheless, the gift of a physical body is priceless. Without it, we cannot attain a fulness of joy. 

A perfect body is not required to achieve a divine destiny. In fact, some of the sweetest spirits are housed in frail frames. Great spiritual strength is often developed by those with physical challenges precisely because they are challenged. Such individuals are entitled to all the blessings that God has in store for His faithful and obedient children. 

Eventually the time will come when each ‘spirit and body shall be reunited again in perfect form; both limb and joint shall be restored to its proper frame’ (Alma 11:43).  Then, thanks to the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can become perfected in Him.
Personal Behavior:-

How should these truths influence our personal behavior? We should gratefully acknowledge God as our Creator. Otherwise, we would be as guilty as goldfish swimming in a bowl, oblivious to the goodness of their provider. “Ye must give thanks unto God,” said the Lord, “for whatsoever blessing ye are blessed with.” And we can practice virtue and holiness before Him continually.

We will regard our body as a temple of our very own. We will not let it be desecrated or defaced in any way. We will control our diet and exercise for physical fitness.

Should not equal attention be paid to spiritual fitness? Just as physical strength requires exercise, so spiritual strength requires effort. Among the most important of spiritual exercises is prayer. It engenders harmony with God and a desire to keep His commandments. Prayer is a key to wisdom, virtue, and humility.

 Scriptural warning is clear: “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.” In time, addictions enslave both the body and the spirit. Full repentance from addiction is best accomplished in this life, while we still have a mortal body to help us.

As children of God, we should not let anything enter the body that might defile it. To allow sensors of sight, touch, or hearing to supply the brain with unclean memories is a sacrilege. We will cherish our chastity and avoid “foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown [us] in destruction and perdition.”We will “flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, [and] meekness” traits that edify the whole soul.

Who are we? We are children of God. Our potential is unlimited. Our inheritance is sacred. May we always honor that heritage in every thought and deed."

I encourage you to read the whole talk in your own time, here's the link to the talk.

I love the Image that I have shared for this post. If you can not see the Image that I have shared with this post, it says "You are a child of God. You are wonderfully made, dearly loved, and precious in his sight. Before God made you, he knew you. There is no one else like you."
