Introducing: Thoughts for Thursday

We are officially starting a new blog project. Every Thursday I’m going to post a poster or printable with a quote or positive thought. I’m really excited for this one. I love designing and I love happy quotes – perfect combination!

We’ve recently had a copyright incident pop up (someone trying to steal and then sell my work) so I’d just like to remind everyone that these posters are free for personal use, but NOT for commercial use. It’s sad that I even have to say that, especially considering that 99.9% of my readers would never dream of trying to steal my stuff, but I guess that’s how life works sometimes. One person can ruin it for everyone.

So without further ado, here’s my first poster. This is based on a quote by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland’s recent general conference talk, The Laborers in the Vineyard. OH, and P.S. that’s my awesome dad in the picture – proof that he’s both the most awesome giving dad ever and he might be a little crazy ;) runs in the family, lol.

Envy is like downing another quart of pickle juice every time anyone around you has a happy moment

I chose this for our first thought because the quote comes with such vivid imagery, lol. Please leave me comments and suggestions. Do you have a favorite quote you would like turned into a poster or printable? Let me know, and I just might pick it for next weeks thought :)

    I don’t know if you want to stick with Conference talks or not but I really like the statement from President Uchtdorf in The Merciful Obtain Mercy
    “When it comes to hating, gossiping, ignoring, ridiculing, holding grudges, or wanting to cause harm, please apply the following:
    Stop it!”
    I would love to see a poster of it. Anyway, I love your blogs! Thanks for doing these! Miss you!!!

  2. I agree with Angela Nelson, that is one of my favourite talks. Another one is Elder Robert D. Hales talk Waiting upon the Lord: Thy Will Be Done. the whole talk is inspiring. Not sure what is best for a poster. Even all the scripture references are amazing. Here are a few of my favourite quotes:
    “The purpose of our life on earth is to grow, develop, and be strengthened through our own experiences.”
    “… we have the opportunity to learn, that no matter how difficult our circumstances, “all these things shall [be for our] experience, and … [our] good.””
    “Yes, “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Then, in the dawn of our increased faith and understanding, we arise and choose to wait upon the Lord, saying, “Thy will be done.””
    “… we “wait upon the Lord.””

    I might have got a little carried away. Love your blog. I have a wall in my classroom at school that I use only for inspirational sayings. Thank you for yours. I’m going to enjoy Thoughts for Thursday.
