Around here, we call them Gorilla Droppings. It is the name the boys came up with years ago, and it stuck. These ones have a new twist. I hope you enjoy them too.

Since I have been so busy and overwhelmed for the past week or so, I thought I would keep my spiritual thought simple today. Remember in the Doctrine and Covenants 10:4 is says:
Do not run faster or labor more than you have strength and means provided to enable you to translate; but be diligent unto the end.
Although the Lord was talking about translating here, I think it pertains to us in our day to day lives. He knew that we would suffer sickness, adversity, despair, and pain. I think this simple scripture is also to remind us that He doesn't expect us to do more than we are able to do. We need to trust Him, follow Him, and keep striving to be more like Him. This life is a journey toward Him. It is not a race to the finish line. Sometimes, I forget that in my desire to be all that I can be. I forget that I am really trying to be all that He wants me to be.
