I've decided

Last night I was reading sec 78. Great chapter, telling us about God's plan for Zion, his qualities and that he has and that he will come through on his promises. Lots of good stuff in there that taught me so much.

Verse 15:That you may come up unto the acrown prepared for you, and be made brulers over many kingdoms, saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Zion, who hath established the foundations of cAdam-ondi-Ahman;

What stood out was the "many kingdoms". Plural- not just one. I cross referenced it which led to Revelations 20: 6. I almost read that whole chapter. Ch 20 is about the Millennium. Satan will be loosed after the 1000 years and shall go forth to deceive the nations (v8). I don't want to be one of those that are deceived. Can you imagine being righteous during those years, doing temple work, having peace and then you don't believe it, being led astray. Sounds terrible to me. Even the very elect will be deceived.

Isa. 45: 4 Israel mine elect, I have even called thee. Matt. 24: 24 (Mark 13: 22; JS-M 1: 22) they shall deceive the very elect.

So what I've decided is I want to die before the melinium. I'll just keep being righteous my whole life and help from the other side. No chances of being deceived. I think it's a good plan!

Last Sunday we sung hymn 137 "Testimony" I love the words to the last verse. It's really true.

As testimony fills my heart, It dulls the pain of days.

For one brief moment, heaven's view Appears before my gaze.

Mothers that are not yet

“To those who are barren and unable to bear offspring, our deepest sympathy is extended. Let us quote for the consolation of those who are not blessed with the procreative power a statement from the Prophet Brigham Young: ‘Let me here say a word to console the feelings and hearts of all who belong to this Church. Many of the sisters grieve because they are not blessed with offspring. You will see the time when you will have millions of children around you. If you are faithful to your covenants, you will be mothers of nations. You will become Eves to earths like this, and when you have assisted in peopling one earth, there are millions of others still in the course of creation. And when they have endured a thousand million times longer than this earth, it is only as it were at the beginning of your creation. Be faithful and if you are not blessed with children in this time, you will be hereafter.’ "

My Furry Family is Bigger

A rat in Justin's shirt.

Hanging out in the food box- we were that small!

Little baby furry on Justin's shoulder. Doesn't he look so sweet?

Heather with them both.

Eating macaroni and cheese. I fed them so much they pooped 20 pellets. Never again.
Don't you just love their little hands? They are like little people!

Checking out what's going on out there. They are very curious and are always wondering what is up and want to be out with the people.

Escaping to the real world.

The first Friday of April, I got 2 baby male rats. I've never had baby rats before and they were so tiny at a month old they both fit into my hand. A month later they are much bigger. I got them for free and their names are Spotty and Sniffer. They of course love to crawl into my clothes and leave little red scratches on my shoulders. We all like them. Coco wants to eat them! Parker seems to be doing ok with them as he's seen those kind of furries before. I've been bringing them over to McOmbers for Justin and Heather to play with too.

A Van with a Plan

I got a new van today. It's for my dog walking business. Here's the down low: 2002 Chevy with 94,160 miles. Cost me $4200. I have a 48 month loan on it with a 5.49 interest rate. I haven't paid a penny on it yet and won't until June 10th. Weird that it's in my possession and that I drove it today. I'm keeping my Corolla for the good gas mileage, and have seriously lowered my insurance. Here 's the beaut!
