todays post is a combination of good and bad stories.........
Bad first- As many of you know I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And I'm sure you guys also have heard that our dearly beloved Prophet Gordon B. Hinkley has passed away last Sunday due to incidents due to his age. He was 97. I'm sad about his passing but at the same time I'm grateful for the knowledge that I have that he's in a better place, with his beloved wife, and that his family and hopefully me will be able to one day see him again. What a great blessing is that!
On a personal level I saw him (in person) only once in my life. He just got called to be the President of the church at that time (1995) and he visited us in the Philippines. We had a huge conference which I volunteered to be an usher. I didn't get to shake his hand but he waved my way which was good enough for me. I love him cause he's such a powerful example of love, faith, humility and obedience. Everything he has done in his life has been the evidence of his faith and love for the gospel. What an amazing man of God!
And then to the good which really doesn't match up to the first half of this post but here's my happy news today........
this calendar that I posted pictures and instructions on in my January 5th post was accepted in the Basic Grey gallery today. Woohoo!
So there, hope you guys are having a good week so far.
