Treasure

We reviewed President Uchtdorf’s talk today in Relief Society:  Forget Me Not.  It’s one of my favorites.  I made this art journaling page a few months ago with his thoughts in mind – a treasure map full of everyday moments.

I used a few of President Uchtdorf’s quotes on the page:

“The happiest people I know are not those who find their golden ticket; they are those who, while in pursuit of worthy goals, discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments. They are the ones who, thread by daily thread, weave a tapestry of gratitude and wonder throughout their lives. These are they who are truly happy.”

“…don’t close your eyes and hearts to the simple and elegant beauties of each day’s ordinary moments that make up a rich, well-lived life.”

The lesson today reminded me how much I LOVE President Uchtdorf’s talk.  It also reminded me that I should introduce my study topic for the year –  I already have half of a notebook full of thoughts and scriptures, but hadn’t posted about it here yet.  With my study on effort last year – time and again my thoughts turned to treasure.  Quite a few scriptures connect the two.  That and studying about my 4th great grandfather gave me a feel about what real treasure is.   Here are the thoughts from my notebook at the beginning of this year:

Treasure (Looks so much prettier when written by hand – all embellished. 😉 )

I’m thinking on how treasure fits/inspires me in my life.  There are so many people, memories, things, blessings, and doctrines that I treasure.  I want to study the word as a noun and a verb.  What do I treasure?  How do I treasure?  What treasure do I want to earnestly seek?  What do I share with family and friends?

Treasure usually involves a journey of some sort – with treasure being the reward.  How else can treasure be discovered?  I hope this year brings lots of answers – & lots more questions too.  I’m ready for the adventure.

It seemed natural to have silver or gold be my color for the year. I couldn’t decide – so I went with both. :) I’ve learned some significance to those along the way as well. I will continue to share throughout the year. You are welcome on my journey!
