Photo Friday

Well, after the billions of pictures I had last week.  I have very little this week.  I vow to change that though, I really want to capture our house as it is right now, as it's likely it won't be this way too much longer.  Or, things we do here.  Whatever.  I need to bottle up this California that's ours right now.

BUT, I do have one I literally took in Sunday school this week {fires of hell licking at my shoes}":


I got this little fish necklace right after I graduated from high school.  I still wear it all the time.  I was fingering it on Sunday though, and kind of getting emotional about how I got it and what it means to me.

Our YW leaders took us up to a condo they had in Snowbird.  We all felt so grown up going on a trip together and we adored our leaders.  We had an AMAZING weekend together.  Such a good time.  We had all grown up together and I was moving out of the ward and we were each headed to college.  Just a really great time together.

Towards the end they gave each of us this necklace.  It's pretty glamrous, no?  But they told us that it was now our turn to be fishers of men.  When you're a youth in our church you tend to have so many people pulling for you, helping you -- all that jazz.  But now it was our turn.  Now was our turn to help others.  It was a welcome into being an adult.  It was a welcome to relief society, and I haven't forgotten it.  It's one of the times I remember the most in my life.  I have such feelings of love for those YW leaders.  They were so accepting and loving.  I hope I was half of the leader they were.

But, now is the time.  Now is the time to help others.  Isn't that a great sediment?  I love that necklace so.

And in an effort to win cute points here is Miss P doing her flashcards with me this past week.  I love her little voice.  I love how she has words.  Love that girl.  Far too much. :)

  1. I knew this was going to be good when I clicked on the link. Fishers of men. Such a powerful phrase and literally all Jesus said to his apostles when he officially called them. "Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men." It's one of those phrases that redirects my focus and my jumbled priorities.
