CD Album

I got this off of a couple who takes wedding pictures blog I follow:

How to make your fake album cover:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”or click first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"or click last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”or click picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. ---I just used a random picture I took

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

Here's the one I did:

This one's more of a poster look:

10 Virgins


1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

So today I went to church with my friend Michelle and it was her stake conference. I sang in the stake choir with her and it was AMAZING. We sang I Know My Redeemer Lives and I Believe in Christ, both songs were really powerful but none of them got me the way Bruce R. McConkie's words did. They're beautiful and filled with the wonderful truth we can ever gain. But after stake conference Michelle and I were waiting for her roommates. We found one of the girls fairly quickly and walked over to the car hoping the other girl was waiting there. When we saw she wasn't Michelle's roommate went in search for the other roommate while Michelle and I stayed by the car. We were waiting there for a good while and finally Michelle decided we should both go look for them. When we were about to embark on this quest I saw the two girls standing across the street with shocked looks on their faces. They came over to us and told us they had both seen the prophet in the building where we had been. It was at that moment I felt a slight understanding towards the 5 virgins who missed the bridegroom. If I had felt inspired to stay a little longer I could've seen the prophet called by God.

...Birthday Knowledge...

What I've learned it means to be 19 years old... It's just like being 18... but better... haha. It means it's my first birthday away from my family (I love them and miss them, but I'm growing up on my own now), it means I can do all the things I want to, it's being able to have fun with friends ALL DAY LONG, it's growing up...
