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!!
