Here are a few of my favorite quotes, that are oh, so true.
Isn’t it always better to look up? We have a loving Father in heaven who loves us and only wants the best for us. He is always there for us, He hears and answers our prayers. So when life looks stormy, like it can for all of us from time to time, LOOK UP! See? Now you’re really smiling, because YOU know the truth to this one! Isn’t it always true that when we are feeling a bit down, worn out, or stressed, that one of the BEST things we can do is get out there and take a hike, a run, a walk, anything physical!! We are all just one workout away from a good mood!! There is something magical about exercise, some fresh air, and good thinking time (or talking out loud to yourself….)I love this quote! It makes you happy just reading it. Really, can’t you think of someone right now who just always seems to be happy? And because they are always happy, they make you happy too? Two of my most favorite happy people can be found here and here. I know these two pretty much better than anyone! And just because they are always so spunky and happy DOES NOT mean that they do not have tough days, trials or hard things happen to them. But they do know how to rely on their Heavenly Father, look up and stay positive. Thank you girls for being such a positive example in my life!!I wish I had this one framed, in large, poster size when my kids were little. Ya I know, you’re wondering…did she ever yell? Answer: yes. Thank goodness for repentance!!! This is another great one. Something I have learned along the way is to remind myself that the person you are dealing with is ALWAYS waaaay more important than whatever issue you are dealing with. Remember how fragile people and feelings are. They are always more important than the issue at hand. Those of you who really know me, know that I love the sunshine, just like my mama. There is something warming to the bones, all the way to the soul that the sunshine can reach, relax, and rejuvenate. It is the same thing with life. We all have our own “storms”, but there is always the sunshine. It will always come.
Each morning as we read our scriptures together, we try to come up with a main theme or short quote for the day to think of all day long. Today’s was: “All things typify of Christ.” Everything in the world, both temporal and spiritual bear record of Christ. The bright, warming, glorious sunshine we enjoy on this earth is a symbol of the Savior. He is the light of the world. He warms us as no one can. He makes our dark days bright and bearable. He is my sunshine. I am so thankful for our loving Father in Heaven and his glorious Son, Jesus Christ. I am thankful for their love, direction, guidance and hand in my life.
