Just Enough



I read an article in Meridian Magazine tonight about focusing on the moment. I then went on to another article that dovetailed it - it was on that feeling of always wanting more. Here's a passage I found striking:

“Fear not, let your hearts be comforted; yea, rejoice evermore, and in everything give thanks . . . (D&C 98: 21) Gratitude is the opposite mindset of “I need more.” When gratitude fills my heart I’m trusting God’s wisdom to give me just enough of everything I need to fill my life’s mission and His purposes for me. When I rail against my circumstances, thinking I need more time, more energy, more money in order to do what I want to do, I am not trusting the Lord, but pitting my will against His.

I HAVE just enough in my life, don't I? How can I find the wisdom in these two articles, both focusing on my moment NOW and being grateful for that moment instead of wishing for more moments, bigger moments, more intense moments?

Food for thought. Good for Sunday tomorrow... Happy Sabbath to you...

p.s. last night Kenneth fell down in the dining room and knocked out his front tooth ROOT and ALL! It was disgusting and it was also my first Mommy Emergency. I handled it with aplomb. Pictures later... ewww...
