“But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7
“Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you but what happens inside of you: it is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life.” – Harold B. Lee
This Day in LDS History
1903 Hundreds of Latter-day Saints gather to greet U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt when he arrives in Salt lake City.
1946 Five hundred former members who had been part of a group that had left the Church over a dispute regarding native leadership spread flowers along the lane leading to the chapel in Tecako, Mexico, stand on each side, singing “We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet” as President George Albert Smith arrives to address them. He invites them back into the Church and some twelve hundred eventually return.
1999 Ground is broken for three new temples: The Louisville Kentucky, Adelaide Australia, and Veracruz Mexico Temples.
