The other night when I was reading my scriptures this one just popped out at me. I guess that is the message I needed to hear this week. I have been struggling with a sense of laziness. I just have not wanted to do much. A lot of that had to do with my illness and the kids' being sick. We are all better now, I am happy to say, so this has been very enlightening.
"......see that ye bridle all your passions, that ye may be filled with love; see that ye refrain from idleness."
Believe it or not, this has really helped me. I think back to our pioneers and all that they had to do. They were never able to sit around all day and type on the computer or read a book. They had to work. I believe that this is still the desire of our Father in Heaven. Yes, we have a lot of modern conveniences but does that mean that we have to be idle?? Why is it that when we have all the time in the world we still are not able to put a hot meal on the table for our family? This is what I am going to work on first. I am going to really try hard to think about dinner and making it a great time for my family.
Food for thought...
