weekend sunshine and inspiration


The sun was streaming through my kitchen windows this morning. I thought it looked pretty. And oh, it felt good!

Don't be mad, but it's supposed to be 81 degrees here on Sunday. Glorious! I hope you get a little sunshine wherever you are, too.

And now for inspiration, a quote:

"When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will be standing, because it is a celestial institution formed outside telestial time. The women of God know this."

Neal A. Maxwell

What do you think? Powerful, no?


Have a happy weekend.
