I found this quote in my inbox this morning and it was just a gentle reminder to me not to get so caught up in the world. When I focus on my family and the tasks at hand things seem to be so much better. I have to remind myself the word I choose for 2008 is FOCUS. Now I need to remember to FOCUS
Only when we fix our gaze on the heavenly things do we begin to understand the eternities. Only with the help of Christ can we fully overcome tragedy. It is necessary to develop our faith in Him as the Redeemer of the world. He taught us: “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
--Carlos H. Amado, "Overcoming Adversity", Ensign, Nov. 1989, 29
