Cabinets and life lessons

So...Morgan did the cutest thing this past week.
As I was doing work on the computer, Morgan took all the cereal boxes out of our bottom cabinet, 10 boxes in all, and lined them up in a neat row, completely blocking the entrance into the kitchen.
It gets better though...she then climbed into the cabinet, and shut the two doors. I didn't know where she was, and when she's quiet...that's usually not a good thing. I call out her name, and she pops her head out, all smiles. She loved hiding in there!
I'm going to try to get a picture of that, or even record it and get it up online...she is the most adorable blond thing ever!

Also...today we had a great Stake Conference. (A meeting in our church where our local leaders give us counsel.) There, I learned an important lesson about a very important word: nevertheless. I gained a greater knowledge that yes, life is hard, yes, I feel this way or that way, yes, I struggle and get tired and get discouraged...but...nevertheless, I will follow and trust in the Lord, and know that all will work out for the best. I gained a greater appreciation for not denying how I feel, but allowing myself to feel sad, or happy, or whatever, but also to realize that the Lord is there, and I can do all things with his strength. I just have to truly turn to him, to kneel on my knees, and ask for His grace.


I've been learning a lot about enduring, but enjoying the journey as I go along. :) Morgan taught me that we all like to hide (in cabinets, or wherever), but it's good to come out afterward with a smile on our face. (I also learned today that it's easier to preach 10 sermons, than to live 1...so, I'm going to try to live this one...even though my little James just woke up. :(
So...until next time!

Mckenzi! I loved your lesson Sunday! Megan and I went and saw The Princess and the Frog last...we loved it. I miss the good old Disney movies with all the morals to the story :)
