This is Beck language for, "What the heck?" His new favorite thing to say. Imagine him rolling his eyes and sticking out his lips.... I wonder where he learned this from. It makes me laugh EVERY time. It's the little things... my life is so full of little blessings everyday... I'm so thankful that I'm able to see them.
So our neighbors are probably thinking, "Wha da hick?" Well, if you've been past our house... the FOR SALE sign is gone. We've changed our minds -- again. We're staying. It's not logical, but it feels right, we know it. We can only eat one elephant at a time... and right now, that elephant is Zeke's school (munch, munch, CRUNCH!).
My awesome visiting teacher, Irene, shared with me a talk from April conference, "Mother Told Me", by Elder Bradley D. Foster of the seventy. Elder Foster says, "A distraction doesn't have to be evil to be effective." WOW! Somewhere in the scriptures it talks about how Satan tries to keep us from arriving at truth. I feel like Satan is trying to distract us in every way possible to keep Zeke from graduating from college.
Mosiah 4:27 "And see that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order."
