I can hardly believe it is the third month of the year. Time is flying in 2010!
For my family scripture study theme I was trying to find a new idea for March. Not that I don't like my previous March themes (you can see one here), but something new is always nice. I was thinking I could put the scriptures on the backs of four-leaf clovers, but what would the scriptures be about? Then I read this and knew:
15c. from M.Du. luc, shortening of gheluc "happiness, good fortune," of unknown origin. Related to M.H.G. g(e)lücke, Ger. Glück "fortune, good luck." Perhaps first borrowed in English as a gambling term. To luck out "to succeed through luck" makes a verb of it, American English colloquial, first attested in 1954.
(source: "luck." Online Etymology Dictionary. Douglas Harper, Historian. 01 Mar. 2010.
So, this month's theme is happiness and good fortune. Many scriptures give advice on how to find happiness in this life. Enjoy!
