2015 mutual theme – Five Quotes

Here are a few embark quotes to go with the 2015 mutual theme.

If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures a prosperous voyage. – George William Curtis

Every single journey that I’ve embarked on, I’ve learned something new. – Shailene Woodley

The best of life is to embark on an adventure with a woman interested on having an adventure with you. – Oleg Cassini

Time and again over your life, the Lord has been giving you the experiences to build strength, courage, and determination. He knew how much you would need that to serve Him. Some of it may have come, as it did for me, when you stood with other priesthood holders and said aloud the words: “Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.” – Henry B Eyring

And the lyrics to the old Favorite Faith in Every Footstep also go well:

    Faith in Every Footstep
    Faith in Every Footstep
    1. A marvelous work has begun to come forth among all the children of men.
    O ye that embark in the service of God, give heart, mind, and strength unto him;
    For prophets have spoken and angels have come to lift the world from sin,
    That Christ may reign over all the earth and bless his gathered kin.

    2. Those marvelous Saints who embraced this great work and shared it in lands far and near;
    Who gave all their heart, mind, and strength to the Lord with wisdom and vision so clear;
    Now stand as examples of virtue and faith, of souls prepared to hear,
    Of knowledge sure, born of humble heart, and love that banished fear.

    3. If we now desire to assist in this work and thrust in our sickle with might;
    If we will embark in the service of God and harvest in fields that are white;
    Our souls may receive the salvation of God—the fulness of his light,
    That we may stand, free of sin and blame, God’s glory in our sight.

    With faith in every footstep, we follow Christ, the Lord;
    And filled with hope through his pure love, we sing with one accord.

I'm Jenny Smith. I keep up with three cars, two kids, one husband, and I live on 300+ acres of rolling farmland in Northern Virginia where we look after an elderly relative. I like tomatoes, all things Star Trek, watercolor, and reading. I spend most days in the garden fighting deer and groundhogs as I pursue a graduate degree. I'm trying to be like Jesus -- emphasis on the trying.
