Wisdom, Humor, and Inspiration in August

 I realize that my blog posts have become somewhat formulaic every month, but it works well for me at this stage of my life so I'm going to continue to go with it. 😁

I wish in the Church that we'd talk more about the "secret combinations plaguing the world today" but it doesn't come up very much. I understand why to a certain extent, but in our more private conversations I wish it came up more because it's extremely relevant. 

I'm so thankful for the "bosom friends" and "kindred spirits" in my life! 

Cute! 😄

I know this is true from personal experience.

I remember reading years ago about how Ben Franklin believed that keeping the windows open at night, especially when one was sick, was healing and medicinal. I've followed that advice in my life and for my family, and it works. Fresh air is wonderful when you're healthy and when you're sick.

I'm doing a lot more work and saving rather than "playing" right now. I hardly ever do fun shopping or trips anymore. My financial situation has changed so much because of the still-happening and very expensive divorce process, my still-spouse getting laid off, and the tanking economy. The priority of having control of one's finances is essential, and that's what I'm focusing on as I'm figuring out how to make things work on a reduced income. At first it was pretty intimidating for me when our finances were split last month, but now I'm kind of enjoying the challenge of making it all work. 

😆 I have days where I feel like this!

I was able to use these scriptures with two Christian investigators who the missionaries and I have been meeting with for a few months. I happened to have come across this a few days before one of our discussions where this topic came up and was able to share these scriptures effectively with them. I don't know how Christians can't believe in a pre-mortal existence! I'm so thankful to know where I come from, why I'm here, and where I'm going. 🤍
