Our freedom to choose between eternal life or spiritual death is indeed a reason to “cheer up.”

This gift of freedom to choose was assured by the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, but each of us must choose which path to take and act accordingly.

This verse really resonated with me today.  I really need to be delivered from darkness to light, from captivity to freedom! I must trust the Savior to deliver me by his power.

And I, Nephi, did go into the mount oft, and I did pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things.

My focus for 2016 is “Simplify.” I want to concentrate my time, thoughts and actions on things which matter most.  I must weed out the extraneous and unimportant, and devote my energies to things of lasting significance.  To that end, I take courage in this principle, that by small things, great things brought to pass.  I will focus on the small bits of goodness that I might contribute to my family, my fellowmen and to God, with confidence that such small things will bring great blessings into the lives of those I love.

My 2016 “Word of the Year” is “simplify.” I am working to weed out the extraneous and unimportant from my life so I can concentrate my best efforts on things of lasting significance, with confidence that my concentration on small acts of kindness and service will bless and enrich the lives of those whom I love.

According to the little history lesson in this diagram, we should never let age get in the way of doing something great. I still have a ways to go before I will be as old as Col. Sanders!

1775: The American Revolution Begins

Shot heard around the world

Two hundred forty years ago today, the “shot heard around the world” signaled the start of the American Revolutionary War. As described on History.com

At about 5 a.m., 700 British troops, on a mission to capture Patriot leaders and seize a Patriot arsenal, march into Lexington to find 77 armed minutemen under Captain John Parker waiting for them on the town’s common green. British Major John Pitcairn ordered the outnumbered Patriots to disperse, and after a moment’s hesitation the Americans began to drift off the green. Suddenly, the “shot heard around the world” was fired from an undetermined gun, and a cloud of musket smoke soon covered the green. When the brief Battle of Lexington ended, eight Americans lay dead or dying and 10 others were wounded. Only one British soldier was injured, but the American Revolution had begun.

The next few years would be difficult and trying, but eventually, the brave colonists would prevail. I shall ever be grateful for those who redeemed this great nation by shedding their precious blood in our behalf. (Doctrine & Covenants 101:80)
