DO IT!


Today someone called me. They were worried, crying even. I wanted to say something to reassure them. I don't think I helped much. Maybe this will. It came in my email box from Tut, today.

"Now, I have to admit that among inventions, the "Undo" button is right up there with the very greatest of all time, but it'll never compare to the "Do" button, from which worlds are born.

"Lynne, this is your chance!

"2010, Baby - The Universe

"Plus, Lynne, even while some things can't be undone, you can ALWAYS start anew. "



And so it is. Failed at the diet. Start again. Failed at the exercise program. Start again (or even just start, Lynne).

Have no prospect for a full, successful life? Or don't like the one you do have? Sit down with someone wise and devise a plan and then start.

Have anything in your life that you are disgusted/disappointed with/sad about? Do a do-over.

President Spencer W. Kimball had a little sign on his desk: "Do it!"
We can and we should.

when i was a little girl my aunts sister taught me this poem...

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
but he with a chuckle replied,
that maybe it couldn't but, he would be one who wouldn't say so till he tried.
So, he buckled right in with a trace of a grin on his face, if he worried he hid it.
and he tackled the thing that couln't be done,
AND HE DID IT!

her name was Gretta ( i will have to ask my mom her last name cause I am not sure i know it... she and my aunt we born in the late 1800's or somewhere there about and they used to bicker and joke and were so full of wit and wisdom... when i was 12-15 i would go to their house ot stay with them to cook for them and to clean ...i miss them :D

Thank you for the encouragement. I'm just "doing it" even though it seems these christmas decorations will never be down!

I started my life a few years ago. It was quite a thrill to find the 'DO' button.

Hey Lynne, I'd love to have that BOM reading chart. :D Thanks for the offer!

Also, I'm looking for interesting topics to post on my blog. Anything gospel-ish that you'd like to propose I write about? I'd love your feedback! :D
