i am constantly grateful to be where i am, rather than where i thought i should be.
(taken in front of my house before new year’s. az for life.)
As we walk in obedience to the principles and commandments of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we enjoy a continual flow of blessings promised by God in His covenant with us. Those blessings provide the resources we need to act rather than simply be acted upon as we go through life. … Obedience gives us greater control over our lives, greater capacity to come and go, to work and create.
– Elder D. Todd Christofferson
