New Light of Day

What a day. The new First Presidency was announced this morning. I watched the press conference at work and was pleased with the call of Elder Uchtdorf and am interested to see where this will take us. The press conference was good and kept me thinking for a while. For the record, the rain was gone and it was a beautiful day here in Southern California.

We hung a bunch of pictures in my office today so it finally looks like we have moved in. I have a few frames left to fill, but will need to go through some more pictures to get more variety. I got through a lot of email today because it was fairly quiet and can actually see all that is left on one screen!

Stacy taught a good lesson tonight at FHE on compassion. I could come up with some great things to write, but I need to get to sleep.

I went to the Dowden’s after FHE to take Diana the chocolate doughnut holes I forgot to bring yesterday. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to stay for just a few minutes, and it was 10 o’clock before I left.

I think I need to be in the office in the morning, so I had better get myself to bed. I’m ready for the new light.

First Presidency Announced

A very good press conference this morning:

Thomas S. Monson is the new President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with Henry B. Eyring as First Counselor and Dieter F. Uchtdorf as Second Counselor.

I’m anxious to see what they will bring. I think that Elder Uchtdorf was a good choice that will help bring the Church forward with the growing international membership.

See the LDS Newsroom for more information as it becomes available.

I think the weather has been very interesting to match the news. We had the rain yesterday when they were in the Temple in Salt Lake City to sustain and ordain President Monson and now today, at least here in Southern California, it is beautiful. We have mostly clear sunny skies and I hear we got a good amount of snow overnight which will help sustain life throughout the year.
