So has any one graduated lately and received that big fancy blank folder after walking through the big ceremony and such. I did recently I expected the blank folder but even still I was a little disappointed to see such a blank page and I couldn't help but wonder if it was a sign of things to come.
I am glad I did it but some ceremonies are a real let down.
I will post the happy pictures soon.

"Will prayers that do not demand much of your thought merit much attention from our Heavenly Father? When you find yourself getting into a routine with your prayers, step back and think. Meditate for a while on the things for which you really are grateful. Look for them. They don't have to be grand or glorious. Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one's voice. Thinking of things we are grateful for is a healing balm. It helps us get outside ourselves. It changes our focus from our pains and our trials to the abundance of this beautiful world we live in."
--Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Improving Our Prayers," Liahona, Aug. 2004, 18

Andy's art reception went well. It was fun to be there with Jess Smiley (andy and he showed their art together). Jess is very creative and interactive; Andy is a little more reserved. So having them together made the reception very diverse. The wonderfull thing is that they both think the other is great at what they do. I think they are both proud of each other.
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH TO ALL WHO HAVE VISITED THE SHOW. It's been a great support to us.

"We should not be discouraged or depressed by our shortcomings. No one is without weakness. As part of the divine plan, we are tested to see whether we master weakness or let weakness master us. Proper diagnosis is essential to proper treatment. The Lord gave us this remarkable assurance: “Because thou hast seen thy weakness thou shalt be made strong” (Ether 12:37). But wishing for strength won’t make us strong. It takes faith and work to shore up a weakened cord of integrity." --Russell M. Nelson, "Integrity of Heart", Ensign, Aug. 1995, 19
