but here we sit debating hope

my sunday best: dress one it was $2.50 at the idaho falls ranch thrift store. over the years i've found a handful of really pretty dresses. this is an effort to document them.

sundays will always be my favorite day of the week. i sat in the conference center as joseph b. worthlin said this

"each of us will have our own fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. we all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. we will all have our fridays, but i testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—sunday will come. in the darkness of our sorrow, sunday will come. no matter our desperation, no matter our grief, in this life or the next, sunday will come."

i listened and i wept as if those words were spoken only for me.

Beautiful dress and beautiful words.

that talk will always be a favorite.

my friend and i always talk about how people can be crafty or good writers or beautiful or whatever, but what REALLY gets us jealous is people who find amazing things thrifting. :)

and this quote kinda got to me today...."this life or the next"... (you know)
