Fires in Utah / Gratitude
Well...  It seems that all of Utah is on fire.  I mean... Almost literally.  Currently there are 5-6 fires raging on in various parts of Utah, the extreme north, to the extreme south.  One has consumed 18,000 acres so far.  Insane...

Why do I find this interesting?  Well, it's just interesting that one of the "signs of the times" has quite a bit to do with fires.

Anyway...  Life is good.  It continues to be good, as long as I keep the commandments.

Ya know, sometimes I can't help but to sit back, where ever I am and be in awe at my life.  I sure do have it good.  Personally, between you and me, I *really* think that it has something to do with gratitude.  That's all I'm gonna say about that.

I certainly have a difficult time believing, or even honestly thinking through any type lucidity about my deserving anything with which I have been blessed.  I'm kind of a paradox, because if I honestly believed that, then I'd be living a much better life than I am now...  Yet...  In my heart I just know that I cannot deserve all the blessings the Lord has given me.

I simply must live better to prove to Him, my Father, that I *really am grateful*...
