The time have I left in my life is like the money I have. I don't have much of either, so I should put much thought into thinking about the best ways to spend them both.

"Go", said the brain. Nothing happened. "Go", said the body. Nothing happened. "Go", said the Spirit. Nothing happened. Unfortunately, they were all out of fuel. They all forgot to fill their tanks the night before. Thankfully, the Spirit had been built with a reserve tank in the back. It had enough fuel in it to drive the other two to the nearest prayer station where they were all able to fill up. Everything went well after that. – Reverend Bob
“The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. Preoccupation with unworthy behavior can lead to unworthy behavior.
— Boyd K. Packer - (Ensign Magazine Nov. 1986)
Associate with people who make a habit of being as decent, honourable and as virtuous as they can be. Nobody is perfect, but some people are just more vigilant than others in trying to do the right things. Even though such people might, personally, seem 'uncool' on the surface, their company and influence is always invaluable. – Reverend Bob
"There are only two kinds of people in the world. They are those who need Jesus Christ and know it and those who need Jesus Christ and don't know it." – The Rev
"The person who knows only one side of an argument knows neither side to an argument." - Source unknown
The Daily Ahem is a mix of some thoughts about religion as well as a little homespun philosophy, hopefully for your daily edification. I would love to hear your comments on the principles that I present here daily. If you wish to see other quotes that appear on alternate days go to my website at: milesofsmilespublishing.com/blog
My blog is more concerned about philosophical and religious matters than political ones. Because we may be addressing sensitive subjects here, there are certain rules of decorum that we expect people to follow. The statements are not meant to be fodder for arguments so remember that profanity or name-calling is not allowed.
Most religious references will be Christian, for that is the main path we follow in the C.C.C.M.S. organization, but comments from any quarter, religious or non-religious, are welcome as long as they are well thought out, polite and well-presented.
Questions about another religion are permissible, but there are many different beliefs in this world and being offensive to someone or misrepresenting their views, or even being easily offended, does not contribute to our mutual quest to find the truth.
A 'desire to learn' is the only thing that will be required of the contributors to this site. A person does not need to have a strong opinion on something to contribute to the conversation. In fact, having questions can often be more appropriate.
