Tide pool discoveries and humble pie

This week we are talking about humility

I want to start out by a quote from LaNae Valentine, Ph.D .This article is taken from a BYU devotional address, “Discerning the Will of the Lord for Me,” given on June 29, 2004.

"As you go through life, sometimes painful or disappointing experiences will tempt you to build barricades around your heart. Feelings of inadequacy or unworthiness can become barriers if they cause you to turn your heart away from Heavenly Father. Through disobedience, you can roadblock revelation by hardening your heart.

When there are blockades between your heart and the will of your Heavenly Father, you will have difficulty choosing in accordance with God’s will.

But you can, like Nephi, pray that your heart will be softened (see 1 Nephi 2:16). That removes a roadblock. You can ask Heavenly Father to heal your broken heart (see Psalm 147:3). That moves another obstacle out of the way. Keep listening to your heart, keep trusting in the Lord (see Proverbs 3:5–7), and He will help you to know what your barriers are and how to remove them. Then you’ll be without roadblocks on the road to righteous decisions."This part of talk or all if it found here

Scripture:3 Nephi 9:20
 "And ye shall offer for a a sacrifice unto me a broken heart and a contrite spirit. And whoso cometh unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, him will I baptize with fire and with the Holy Ghost, even as the Lamanites, because of their faith in me at the time of their conversion, were baptized with fire and with the Holy Ghost, and they knew it not"

We read The King who wanted to touch the moon

Since we talked about the moon in our story,U thought it went well with tides.We talked about what causes tides and learned more about tide pools.

We went to a beach at low tide and found a tide pool and made soooo many discoveries!
 How long is seaweed? Is it a plant?

 We saw so many jellyfish!Ouch watch out!

 The water at high tide can cover this area wow!

 You may not be able to see him but there is a crab.He was really fast!

 My oldest rescued and caught this fish.We are still trying to find out what it is.

 Where did my daughter go?Fun in the sand.We had a great time!
