My niece is a new teacher this year.  There was a hailstorm which frightened one of her second grade students.  The next day, the boy announced to the class, "When Jesus comes again, there won't be any more hail or earthquakes or volcanoes.  There won't even be school."  I guess school belongs in the same category as natural disasters.  ;D

When I took my fifth graders outside for recess today, one of the girls shivered and said, "I feel really cold." The girl standing right next to her said, "I feel really amazing. It's because I have a hoodie." What a great outlook on a cloudy and windy day.

BLT for breakfast, most of my patients cancelled their appointments this week, the days are starting to get shorter & cooler, and I have a 4 layer fudge cake in the kitchen. 

So often, it's the little things. :)

Mormon Life / Re: PRAYER LIST
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:02:00 am »
Once again, the sincere prayer of far off brothers and sister have reached the ears of the Lord. How grateful I am for the power of prayer and that I can ask and people respond.  I am far better today. As I get older it takes me a little more time to reset than it used to.  I am like one of those bop em blow up clowns from the last generation where you gave them a punch and they'd roll right back up. Well, I have lost a little air and it takes abit longer.

Himself and I had a good conversation about our new family circumstance and although we are not totally in step, we are a team and are facing this challenge together.

My anxiety attack has passed.  Not throwing in the towel  today :)

It might be worth going ahead and locking it now so there is no additional discussion, and then delete it at a later date, should you so choose.

About  a third of the mandatory evacuation orders got lifted tonight. That likely means the firefighters will able  leave structural defense mode of that and start to get more containment tomorrow... I hope. As long the other areas of housing don't become more threatened and need more personnel.

We are very close to the fire. Our house isn't in danger- fire would have to come through literally 400+ structures to reach us from the closest spot- but a few ward members and more stake members evacuated. (One ward member is also a block from an evac line and posted a pic from helping her neighbor evac their horses- one evac center is taking animals. So my friends hauled food for them in their truck while their neighbors rode and led the horses down.)

I have asthma and smoke can be a major trigger, but have closed-system a/c we've been able to keep running, I not only have an inhaler but my dad dropped off a nebulizer and started me on steroids. I don't enjoy prednisone, but I 100% prefer icky side effects and breathing without any issues to using albuterol constantly. I'm blessed to have a doctor dad whom I can text to say "I need a prednisone burst" and he just calls it in without me having to go in the smoke see anyone! My mom's asthma is also under control and my sister's managing hers ok with minimal albuterol. We're all heeding the warnings to stay in and run the a/c.

2 families in my city have lost homes. Prayers for them, those threatened/evaced, and especially the brave firefighters from 6 agencies protecting us are appreciated. We are dedicating our fast to pray for calming of the winds, maybe some rain (50% chance predicted tomorrow) and protection for the firefighters. This is a natural process but I believe God is definitely protecting our firefighters! It has been wonderful to see community support for them too.

Thank you for the concern.  :-*

Even when we get new lesson guides, I hope the scriptures will continue to be our curriculum for gospel doctrine. I'm growing increasingly concerned about how the use of scriptures, specifically the New Testament, is disappearing from Sacrament Meeting talks, Priesthood lessons, and general instruction. "Feel good stories" seem to be taking over every meeting and class.

I don't think that they don't support or don't want to support the ideals of less government and strategic taxes that support business.  They're just pragmatic enough to know that their businesses will be dragged through the mud, no matter how much they strive to respect differences and talk though difficulties, if they maintain formal ties with a trump white house.

Meanwhile, our clown-in-chief has thrown his lastest temper tantrum by ending his businesses advisory panel after 1/3 of the members quit.  Aside from racists and white trash, big business was one of the last of his remaining allies.  I sure hope Muller quickly finds enough dirt to justify impeachment proceedings.

And an even clearer amendment came out today because certain members were twisting the former one:
http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/church-statement-charlottesville-virginia
Quote
It has been called to our attention that there are some among the various pro-white and white supremacy communities who assert that the Church is neutral toward or in support of their views. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the New Testament, Jesus said, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:37-39). The Book of Mormon teaches “all are alike unto God” (2 Nephi 26:33).
White supremacist attitudes are morally wrong and sinful, and we condemn them. Church members who promote or pursue a “white culture” or white supremacy agenda are not in harmony with the teachings of the Church.
