Highs, Lows & Chicken Smoothies

So Let it be Written So Let it be Done

Happy BIrthday to me, Happy BIrthday to me…..

I asked Brittny to create a new section on Andersonland as a birthday present. I hope you will all share in the gift. I have been working on Personal Progress and as I learn and discover cool things through study and the power of the Holy Ghost I I have a great desire to share the testimony that I receive. Since there are getting to be more than a few of us, I thought it would be cool to share with one another. I hope this becomes a place that we can share and strengthen each other’s testimonies.

This morning I was studying faith by reading Elder Nelson’s talk from this past General Conference. Here are a few of his comments that struck me this morning.

“To prepare to meet God, one keeps all of His commandments. It takes faith to obey them, and keeping His commandments will strengthen that faith”.

“All that the future holds in store for each sacred child of God will be shaped by his or her parents, family, friends, and teachers. Thus, our faith now becomes part of our posterity’s faith later.” – for those of us who are already parent’s this comment stuck out to me as an indication of how important it is that we share our faith openly with our children and also that our deep faith can be a gift to future generations. It made me realize how important it is that I develop and witness my faith in my Savior to my posterity – hence this blog.

“Teach of faith to keep all the commandments of God, knowing that they are given to bless His children and bring them joy.4 Warn them that they will encounter people who pick which commandments they will keep and ignore others that they choose to break. I call this the cafeteria approach to obedience. This practice of picking and choosing will not work. It will lead to misery. To prepare to meet God, one keeps all of His commandments. It takes faith to obey them, and keeping His commandments will strengthen that faith.”

“To develop enduring faith, an enduring commitment to be a full-tithe payer is essential. Initially it takes faith to tithe. Then the tithe payer develops

more faith to the point that tithing becomes a precious privilege. “

“Why do we need such resilient faith? Because difficult days are ahead. Rarely in the future will it be easy or popular to be a faithful Latter-day Saint. Each of us will be tested. The Apostle Paul warned that in the latter days, those who diligently follow the Lord “shall suffer persecution.”12 That very persecution can either crush you into silent weakness or motivate you to be more exemplary and courageous in your daily lives.” – This comment helped me because I worry that I will not be strong enough to resist the difficulties that lie ahead. I read of people with great courage who have suffered so much for the Gospel’s sake and I don’t see myself as being that strong, even though I am certain of the truth of this Gospel. However this comment made me realize that I should not look with fear to potential difficulties but just work on my faith and if I do that I will be prepared for the future.

“President Monson continued: “My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.” – I guess that says it all about the importance of building our faith.

I love you all and hope that my faith will help and bolster you. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and know that he truly is our Savior.

Low: Sam has not done a good job sleeping this week. It’s been a very long week sleep-wise…

High: Sam is taking a nap right now! He fell asleep on our rocking chair after church. Daniel is asleep too. I had decided against taking a nap myself in favor of getting caught up on some blogging… but now that I’m looking at my computer screen I’m deciding that would be

Highs and Lows of Cars

Low: The Saturn and the Prius are having serious difficulties…like maybe we should bury them.
High: The Prius didn’t burst into flames when Dad was driving it even though there was a popping sound by the main battery and it smelled bad.
Low: The Prius didn’t burst into flames so we could collect insurance money.

Brittny – 01 September 2011

It’s been awhile since anyone posted in our Highs and Lows blog so I figured I’d get us started back up again. If you’ve forgotten how to log in to post your own I’ll probably be re-sending instructions later today. Anyways, here’s my high and low (actually one low and several highs).

Low: Daniel got shots on Monday and he’s been having a sad week ever since. Not sleeping for more than 30 minutes on his own, super clingy, congested etc. Poor baby 🙁

High(s): Daniel’s starting to seem happier again! I think the effects of the shots are finally starting to wear off! It’s actually been kind of good to realize just how good of a baby he is. It’s helped me realize how hard I really had it with Sam. The way Daniel’s been for the last few days was how Sam was for the entire first

year of his life!! It’s just making me feel like I wasn’t such a pathetic mom with Sam, he was just tough. I love him to absolute kibbles and bits, but he was NOT an easy baby.

Also, this picture:
Silly Sam

And this picture:
Baby eating macaroni and cheese
Yes, that’s Sam’s baby doll eating macaroni and cheese…

And finally, I had a really fun realization that I wanted to share. Last night we had a baby shower for my niece Danielle. The shower was held at my in-law’s house. As we were getting ready to leave I spent a little bit of time just talking with my mother-in-law about different things – Sam & Daniel, our yard, Eric’s job… just stuff. I was feeling very grateful afterwards for the time that we spent living in their basement. Before then I really didn’t know my in-laws all that well and, as you all know, I’m a little bit shy. I’m not good at putting myself out there to get to know people. But, when you live in someone’s basement for 5 months, you don’t have too much choice but to get to know one another better. I now consider my mother-in-law to be one of my really good friends, and I think that’s a huge blessing.

Oooh! Another high! Daniel just fell asleep in my lap! Hopefully that will mean it will be easier to put Sam down for his nap, and then maybe I’ll even have a few minutes all to myself! Heaven!
