281: FALL EQUINOX 2014

Today is Monday, September 22, 2014. The Fall Equinox is at 8:29 PM on Mountain Day Light Saving Time. Here is a photo from this morning sunrise.

Today marks the beginning of the seventh year since I first began observing the Fall Equinox. It is the first year that I observed it with my family. We hiked to a rocky peak above the Salt Lake Valley. Below is a low resolution photo of our hike last night. Yesterday was an important day.

Adam and Even were commanded to multiply and replenish the earth. In doing so, they could have joy and rejoice in their posterity. They were also told not to partake of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Even though the Lord promised He would visit them again to give them further light and knowledge, Adam and Even moved forward on their own after being deceived by the adversary. Instead of waiting for further instruction on how to proceed, Adam and Eve instead partook of the fruit and fell..

When we are given a commandment by the Lord, He will give us further instruction if we ask Him. He will give further light and knowledge to those who want to do His will instead of acting hastedly on their own. The Lord does not need freelancers or zealots, but instead trusted servants. True servants do not trifle with the souls of men.
