"Why, elder Uchtdorf, are you speaking directly to me?...Why yes,...yes you are..."
You know how that is when the words just seem to fit everything about your life that you have been thinking and feeling?...that was how it felt. His message of hope and endurance were right on target to my heart. Then I read "The Best is Yet to Be" by elder Holland. Holy Cow! was this a spiritual ambush or what?! Just exactly what I need to hear.
is always pointed toward the future"
These are words that are perfect for this day when the rain is coming down so hard it's scary, and everything looks grey and foreboding.

The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in his hand
Who saith, "A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God:
see all, nor be afraid!"
And for this old gal...who sometimes gets discouraged at life...I will be looking for sunshine, hoping for a brighter day, and trusting God that what we are doing is part of His plan.
Besides...sometimes when you look back...
you realize what dorks you were then...
