Temple Vandalism

Temple Vandalism

I was saddened to read about a young man who broke in to the Saint George, Utah, Temple and vandalized it.  This happened Saturday morning, and the assailant was apprehended by some of the temple workers and subdued until police arrived.  The temple vandalism consisted damage to furniture, fixtures, windows and artwork.  What possesses anyone to vandalize?

On the Brighter Side

It’s Mother’s Day and I made a meal exactly to Elizabethe’s request – chicken, baked potatoes, vegetables, and a salad.  We invited Maureen to join us, as well as the sister missionaries.  (The sisters are excited because they got to Skype with their families before coming over.)

For dessert I made brownies with walnuts.  My brownies are always good, and I served these with sliced strawberries.  What a great combination!

Guest at Church

The sisters asked us to pick up a man whom they taught recently.  When we picked him up, I recognized him as being a man who purchased one of my prints.  We had a nice talk on the way to and from church.

Elizabethe and I are reading Lectures on Faith.  As a result, certain  things really stand out to me.  I’ve read them before, however, this time is a little more different.  Because my familiarity with the Book of Mormon has increased, much of what is said in the Lectures on Faith has more impact.
