Good and Bad.....

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.

Super cute project. And did I know that you were LDS?

Gordon B Hinckley definitely was an amazing man. He's the only prophet I've known, as I didn't join the church until 1997. So this whole change of a prophet thing is new to me. But Thomas S. Monson is one of my favorite speakers! So this is exciting for me... I however thought he was younger than 80! Makes me wonder how long he will be around because he's diabetic. My grandmother died when she was 82 and she had NOTHING wrong with her. It was just her time. Hopefully he is around well into his 90's too!
