I happen to be working on the Resurrection. Here's a nice quote from President Hinckley.

“The miracle of that resurrection morning, that first Easter Sunday, is a miracle for all mankind. It is the miracle of the power of God, whose Beloved Son gave His life to atone for the sins of all, a sacrifice of love for every son and daughter of God. In so doing He broke the seals of death. …And just as He took up His body and came forth from the tomb, even so shall all of us enjoy a reunion of body and spirit to become living souls in the day of our own resurrection.
“We rejoice, therefore, as do many, and as should all mankind, when we remember the most glorious, the most comforting, the most reassuring of all events of human history—the victory over death” (“The Victory over Death,” Ensign, Apr. 1997, 4).
I may have a little more Easter stuff to say this week. But this is a nice start!

and the words, they're everything [wwis 13]

Boy do I have spring fever today! So here's a bunch of old status-bot tweets relating to summer. Sort of.

I'm just, I'm not sure there's a better thing than a garden tomato liberally garnished with bacon.

This sounds like my kind of picnic (especially if combined with the previous)

Sometimes leftovers don't always pan out the way you hoped.
Or this might be about a regrettable summer haircut.

Like, do people not know that they're leaving their prints for the sun to shine on? (Sunshine. Relevant.)

Mosquitos are summery. Also finding stuff is a good summer activity (wait of course! geo-caching!)

Sounds like an ideal summer activity to me.

I once took an anatomy course over the summer (this year I'm attempting accounting)

I like imagining what this qualifying sentence could have followed. "She was loved in all the eternal worlds." "Well, most of them."

Yep. When I first randomly placed all these tweets in this post I didn't know they were all going to relate to summer so well (Well. Most of them). They're also not SUPER funny, but I am sure one of the next WWIS installments will be hilarious. #staytuned

I  had an idea for MM but I forgot it. So have this nice quote that I just copied so it's conveniently right at my fingertips already.

“Men and women who turn their lives over to God will find out that he can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace” (“Jesus Christ—Gifts and Expectations,” New Era, May 1975, 20).

(President Benson)

Is this becoming more of a monthly thing than a weekly thing? Okay.
