A Song I Want To Share With You.

 I've been listening to this song ever since I was little and I love it. 

Its message always rings true, "enjoy the simple every day things of today. They will be treasures tomorrow."   And  "they are the most important." That's what it says to me.

Sometimes it says other things like "look for the beauty around you."  

It words and message are always constant they never change.

This song also always makes me think  of My Mummy .
She loves simple things so if I where to choose a song to describe her this would be in the top 3.
I also really like Amy Grant .

On Temples.......

 Today I was reading one of my favourite blogs and the author, Christa had linked too and shared  parts of an interesting article on teenager girls, modesty and such.
It was very interesting as I've said.  And it got me thinking  about how important  it is to dress as a Temple of The Holy Spirit.

A Temple doesn't have just a floor a roof and  walls with big gaps and an open door.  No.  It is beautiful and mysterious, graceful and sacred. A Temple.

I want to be prized as a woman of God, not a Fun House.
I want to be loved for me , not my body.   I want to be a Temple. 

I hope you will too.
