"If we constantly focus only on the stones in our mortal path,  we will almost surely miss the beautiful flower or cool stream provided by the loving Father who outlined our journey.  Each day can bring more joy than sorrow when our mortal and spiritual eyes are open to God's goodness. Joy in the gospel is not something that begins only in the next life. It is our privilege now, this very day.  We must never allow our burdens to obscure our blessings.  There will always be more blessings than burdens--even if some days it doesn't seem so. Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Enjoy those blessings right now.  They are yours and always will be."
— Jeffrey R. Holland
