Pure Love

This quote is from Elder Richard G Scott's talk in the April 2011 General Conference.  He said,

"Pure love is an incomparable, potent power for good. Righteous love is the foundation of a successful marriage. It is the primary cause of contented, well-developed children. Who can justly measure the righteous influence of a mother’s love? What enduring fruits result from the seeds of truth that a mother carefully plants and lovingly cultivates in the fertile soil of a child’s trusting mind and heart? As a mother you have been given divine instincts to help you sense your child’s special talents and unique capacities."
I took this photo last weekend while we were with family in Provo Canyon roasting hot dogs and bratwurst.  This is the Provo River looking west down the canyon.  Directly to the left, out of the picture, is Bridal Veil Falls.

Silver Lining

I really like this quote from Elder Jeffrey R Holland,

"Even if you cannot always see that silver lining on your clouds, God can, for He is the very source of the light you seek. He does love you, and He knows your fears. He hears your prayers. He is your Heavenly Father, and surely He matches with His own the tears His children shed."   

I took this photo of the Bountiful Temple last night while on a hike with my beautiful daughter Maria.
