Love today, or you'll have a lot of boring yesterdays



It seems like everyone has been posting lately about the Lord's timetable and being patient, etc. So today I wanted to talk about enjoying what we have right now, TODAY.

If you haven't yet watched the clip above, do so now. Its only a minute and a half.

Next, think about how the Lord has touched your life recently and then later, write it in a comment (after reading the post).

For me, the Lord has touched my life in so many ways. Some of which I didn't expect, and some that I thought I never would have at one point or another. Today is my 2 year anniversary of being married to Nick. I think that having him in my life has made such a huge difference! For a time I thought that I would never find a guy who would be decent enough and want to marry me!

Now we are expecting our first baby, after trying for sometime. What a blessing that is- every time I feel his little kicks and nudges I feel so thankful for the Lord's hand in my life.

We have had trials and struggles that we have had to overcome, but through all of it we are stronger and more capable. So I can't help but be thankful for those as well.

Sometimes the monotony of everyday life can be discouraging to us, and make things seem less exciting than we want them to be. But I think that overcoming the monotony means to rethink our day. One way to do this is by doing what Elder Eyring suggested above- looking for the Lord's hand in our life. Another thing that can be done is realizing fully that each day is full of opportunity for amazing and enriching experiences. We just have to choose to make them happen. I hope that this blog has provided the opportunity for each of you to feel like you can enrich the lives of others and yourself.

I love you all!!

  1. One of my all time favorite quotes from Pres. Monson is: "There is no tomorrow to remember if we don’t do something today, and to live most fully today, we must do that which is of greatest importance. Let us not procrastinate those things which matter most."

    I used to have this on our bathroom mirror so we wouldn't forget to live today.

    Lately, the Lord has definitely given me enough energy and strengthen to get through the day. He also reminds me that He's looking out for my family, through letting the money stretch a little further to the next pay day, prompting my husband to help me without asking, or allowing my son to sleep a little more during his nap. It's the tender mercies which help me know He's there each day.

  2. Wow, that clip is amazing! I'm going to be looking at my days differently from now on.

    I would say recently, the Lord has humbled me a little bit. School starts next week, this will be my first year teaching a grade level. The first year of teaching is always chaotic, and I'm having a baby to boot! Needless to say, I'm a little nervous and stressed out.

    I'm the kind of person that feels the need to do everything on my own. I feel like I'm weak if I ask for help. Since I'm completely overwhelmed, I'm really depending on the other teachers in fifth grade. They have been so amazing, and school hasn't even started! They help me with everything, and I certainly need it. I really feel like the Lord has sent them to me to help ease my workload. It is hard for me to admit, but somethings I just can't do all by myself.

  3. The Lord has blessed me with the patience to know that everything will work out recently. This past week, my adorable 10-year-old cousin died. On the way down to see his family in CA, my car mysteriously stopped working and it took most of our trip money to tow and fix it. I'm grateful that we had the money to do that, but I was sad that I didn't get to go to California and spend time with my family during this difficult time. But despite all that, I know that things will work out. The Lord is setting things in motion that I don't understand.
