Love What's Coming

With the dark, overcast sky this morning it is tempting to be discouraged. But sun or no sun, today is a new day and that means new opportunities and new options. It means that I have new hours to write my life upon. I can let the weather discourage me, or I can go through the day looking for surprises and new opportunities. The rain doesn’t change any of that. 

Who knows? Maybe the dusky, dreary, drizzle is the very thing that will bring today’s surprises. I’ll wait and see, but while I wait I'll anticipating the good. 

Elder Wirthlin said, “Come what may, and love it.” But I think we should also anticipate with joy what’s coming. Sure, what comes may not be all that you wanted, but if you waited with joy, the wait was a lot more fun than it would have been. So I say, “Love what’s coming, and it may.”

Instead of sitting at home feeling sad because of the rain, I decided to go to the temple--for the 6th week in a row. It was a great session. :)
