“For Where Your Treasure Is, 

There Will Your Heart Be Also”

Consider the Lilies

Words and music by: Roger Hoffman

Consider the lilies of the field
How they grow, how they grow
Consider the birds in the sky
How they fly, how they fly

He clothes the lilies of the field
He feeds the birds in the sky
And He will feed those who trust Him
And guide them with His eye

Consider the sheep of His fold
How they follow where He leads
Though their paths may wind across the mountain
He knows the meadows where they feed

He clothes the lilies of the field
He feeds the birds in the sky
And He will feed those who trust Him
And guide them with His eye

Consider the sweet, tender children
Who must suffer on the earth
The pains of all of them He carried
From the day of His birth

(Chorus with variation)
He clothes the lilies of the field
He feeds the lambs in His fold
And He will feed those who trust Him
And make their hearts as gold

(Repeat chorus variation)

Now is the Time to Prepare

When the time for decision arrives,
The time for preparation is past.
Thomas S. Monson

If only... I have said those words, over and over again
If only... have you said them too?
Don't say them again, my friend

If only we could see, how we all used to see
If only we could know, what we all used to know
If only we could be, who we all were meant to be
If only life were easy, but life wasn't meant to be

The challenges we face in life, are meant to shape our souls
Experience, relationships all help us to behold
The person that we are, and who we can become
Through eternity, we know, our growth is never done

But here, this time, this place, right now, it's time to begin
Awaken, see and know, and then endure until the end
Mortality, a blink, a melting snowflake, falling rain
With its radiating joys, alongside educating pain

Be ready to meet challenges, be awake, be aware
Be ready for our suffering, for yes, it will be there
Don't fear the trials we will face, the fire we all pass through
 We stand with honor, strength, courage, 
and faith to aid us too

Move forward on life's path, move on with quiet surety
Keep focused on a point ahead, walk the path of purity
Treat others as you wish they all would treat you, as a rule
Forgive the ills, abuses and guiles of the fools

This world's a stage, it seems a game, mirage that can confuse
But if we see with eyes of faith, then we are free to choose
The treasure that is hidden, that will uplift our soul
Give thanks to the Gracious One, who paid the pricey toll

With gratitude and serenity, we can embrace this life
And smile through the good times, and the times of strife
Pray and learn, stretch and grow, believe in God above
All things are truly possible, through His perfect love

So reach for higher planes, for knowledge that is true
Remember who we are, once upon a time we knew
Even though at times is seems, we do not know quite how
Don't wait, don't procrastinate, the time to start is now

No longer say, if only, but do, and do it well
At first it's strange, and difficult, but time will surely tell
When habits formed are good and true, 
all will be well with me and you
Blessings sent from heaven, will settle as the morning dew

Let us make today the day, let us find a way somehow
Because the time for all to prepare, is absolutely, right now

"Do What is Right; Let the Consequence Follow"


Do what is right; the day-dawn is breaking,
Hailing a future of freedom and light.
Angels above us are silent notes taking
Of ev'ry action; then do what is right!

Do what is right; let the consequence follow.
Battle for freedom in spirit and might;
And with stout hearts look ye forth till tomorrow.
God will protect you; then do what is right!
Do what is right; the shackles are falling.
Chains of the bondsmen no longer are bright;
Lightened by hope, soon they'll cease to be galling.
Truth goeth onward; then do what is right!


Do what is right; be faithful and fearless.
Onward, press onward, the goal is in sight.
Eyes that are wet now, ere long will be tearless.
Blessings await you in doing what's right!


That Which is of God

But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually, wherefore, everything which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve him, is inspired of God.

For behold, my brethren, it is given unto you to judge, that ye may know good from evil and the way to judge is as plain, that ye may know with a perfect knowledge, as the daylight is from the dark night.

For behold the Spirit of Christ is given to every man that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

Moroni 7:13, 15, 16

The thirst for infinity, proves infinity
-V. Hugo

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.
-W. Blake

We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare. Now thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.
-R. Wilensky

Who was it that said, 'I hold the buying of more books than one can peradventure read, as nothing less than the soul's reaching towards infinity; which is the only thing that raises us above the beasts that perish?' Whoever it was, I agree with him.
-A. Edward Newton

You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
-D. Chopra

Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
-J.J. Rousseau

A single footstep will not make a path on earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. 

To make a deep physical path we walk again and again. 

To make a deep mental path we must think over and over the kinds of thoughts that we wish to dominate our lives.

-H.D. Thoreau
