Today was not my favorite day.
Don't get me wrong--it had it's good points.
But, I'm okay for it to be over.
But, I did get the opportunity to re-solidify the most important lesson I've learned in all of this. I was all grumpy and stressed out by the time we made it to church. Then came time for the Sacrament to be passed around and I chastised Sweet P for trying to talk to me during the Sacrament when she's supposed to be "thinking about Jesus". And then I realized that I should stick that chastisement right back on myself. Although I'd been quiet, my thoughts were not where they should be.
So, I turned them to my Savior. And I remembered the peace I felt when I'd felt yucky a few weeks ago and turned to the power of the Atonement. And it was amazing how quickly all my negative feelings melted away. Why do I get so caught up in thinking I have to carry around my hurts and my fears?
The Lord says, "Come unto me all ye that labour, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."--Matthew 11:28.
I know this is true because I've experienced it. However, I'm pretty sure this is a lesson I will be repeating for a while, as it is for some reason a struggle for me.
I'm so thankful for it though!
