Gratitude


As I grow older, and mature more (not much), I find I look forward to General Conference more and more. I am grateful for the opportunity to be spiritually fed by the leaders of our church, especially our prophet.

As he spoke today I thought on gratitude and how much I have been given. 

Gratitude for:
My husband
My health
My family
My friends
The gospel
My Savior
My job
My calling
My young women

Today as I listened I was especially grateful for the Lords timing. Sometimes I may not understand. But, my life has shown over and over again that the Lord knows what is best for me. He knows when I am ready for certain things and when there are lessons that need to be learned.

So on this day, I am grateful most my Heavenly Father and his love for me and my family.

Wow, thanks for the reminder. Timing is always hard, especially when you're right in the middle of it. But you are right, it usually makes sense one day. :)
