"Where your treasure is there will your heart be also."

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." (Matthew 6:19-21)

Is it just me or has the world turned away from Jesus' declaration. I am constantly reminding myself to not be selfish and to remember my purpose here on earth. This is much easier said then done, especially since we are surrounded and bombarded with the world's perception of the good life. What I find interesting is when I sacrifice my own selfish desires and focus on others, I am a happier and better person. Less time focusing on self (own problems) and more time to help others and realizing that my life really isn't so bad.

One of the best quotes I have ever heard: "The laughter of the world is merely loneliness pathetically trying to reassure itself." Elder Neal A. Maxwell

I have to remind myself to really enjoy the time I have with my boys while they are so small and young. They are completely sweet and fully loving of me and my imperfections. Who wouldn't want to be loved so completely and effortlessly? Before I know it they'll talk back and think that their Mom and Dad are complete morons.

A quote from President Monson: "There is no tomorrow to remember if we don't do something today, and to live most fully today, we must do that which is of greatest importance. Let us not procrastinate those things which matter most."

I like to tell myself that my blogging is so sporadic because I'm doing such a good job in the Mommy seat. Truly time is just whizzin' by and you really have to choose what you want to spend your time doing each day.

Take the time to cherish the dailiness of life.

Upgrade: Silver to Gold

Well we finally upgraded our silver Accord to a gold! This isn't a picture of our car but very similar.

Dave will now be driving in style! We are very fond of Hondas and it is almost a requirement to being allowed in the family, well that and your political party.

The whole "crashed the car and find a replacement nicer and better than what we originally had, without any stress" is a total miracle and proves that God is very mindful of each of us.

The short of it... a partner at Dave's firm had to take the keys from her 92 year old mother. She has hardly driven the vehicle, so it is in tip-top shape and has extremely low miles. I don't know if she even allowed any one else to ride in it. My only regret is not being able to meet the sweet lady who allowed us to buy it! Dave loves it and appreciates the sherpa covers, especially come summertime!
