  1. I still do. Mine are red and I still wear them and they are at least 20 years old...If it is not worn out/torn/broken...I keep it forever!
  2. Pam... Wishing you a Birthday that is filled with happiness and fun, And overflowing with loved ones, to share it!
  3. My favorite Christmas carol (singer does not matter) is I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day (pg. 214) The story, the words of that song, affects/touches me as no other holiday song does... I heard the bells on Christmas day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on earth, good will to men. And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along the unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men. Till ringing, singing on its way The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, a chant sublime Of peace on earth, good will to men. And in despair I bowed my head “There is no peace on earth,” I said, “For hate is strong and mocks the song Of peace on earth, good will to men.” Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on earth, good will to men.”
  4. I finally told my older boys that they did not have to sing, but they did have to be quiet and respectful while the rest of primary was singing. I found that when I stopped trying to get them to sing, they did behave and some of them even participated. I had rather spend my time teaching the ones that enjoy and want to sing, than wasting it on those that do not. It is a stage they go through, and it will pass....

    Hi :) WELCOME to the site. No dearth of advice, opinions, or thoughts here
  10. No. Because that can be done later. My parents were not married in the Temple. Yet, my sister and I were sealed to them, later, when we were adults. My sister while they were alive; I was sealed to them after their deaths. It sounds complicated, & I think I have it right {others will set me right, if I am mistaken } but... 1) let's say my husband dies before me. I can, by proxy, baptize him...then have our son sealed to us. 2) we both are dead, our son can do the work, and be sealed to us.
  11. One day, as a dog was walking by a store, he noticed a sign which said, "Now Hiring: must be able to type 70 words per minute, and must be bilingual. Equal opportunity employment." The dog took the sign in his mouth and brought it into the manager's office. He set it down on the desk. When the manager realized that the dog was applying for the job, he laughed and said, "I'm not going to hire a dog!" The dog put his paw on the part of the sign that read "equal opportunity employer." "Well," said the manager, "let's see you type 70 words per minute!" He handed the dog a document and watched as the dog perfectly duplicated the document, and well over 70 words per minute. The man looked at the dog. He couldn't believe it. "Don't tell me you're bilingual too." The dog opened his mouth and said, "Meow."
  12. It is possible to have a happy marriage with a non-member spouse. She would have to put off her dream/desire for a Temple marriage, but not the going to the Temple. My husband is not LDS, our son and I are. He totally supports us. He goes to all the family baptisms, many of the social events, participates/helps with the Boy Scout program. My son and I go to the Temple regularly. He will be going on a mission in about a year. My husband has/ lives by, most of the LDS standards. He is just not interested in joining. There are several member/non-member couples in our small ward. My husband has never been pressured to join...not even by my family, all of whom are LDS. I do not have any advice, just sharing my experiences.
  13. A plane is on its way to houston when a blonde in Economy Class gets up and moves to the First Class section and sits down. The flight attendant watches her do this and asks to see her ticket. She then tells the blonde that she paid for Economy Class and that she will have to sit in the back. The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to Houston and I'm staying right here." The flight attendant goes into the cockpit and tells the pilot and the co-pilot that there is a blonde bimbo sitting in First Class who belongs in Economy and won't move back to her seat. The co-pilot goes back to the blonde and tries to explain that because she only paid for Economy she will have to leave and return to ther seat. The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to Houston and I'm staying right here." The co-pilot tells the pilot that he probably should have the police waiting when they land to arrest this blonde woman who won't listen to reason. The Pilot says, "You say she is a blonde? I'll handle this. I'm married to a blonde. I speak Blonde." He goes back to the blonde and whispers in her ear, and she says, "Oh, I'm sorry." And she gets up and goes back to her seat in Economy. The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and asks him what he said to make her move without any fuss. I told her, "First Class isn't going to Houston."
