I received some news today, that made me stop and think just that. I love this poster of the Knots Prayer. I'm very familiar with the knot family...the cannot's, the should not's, the will not's. But what about the why not's? I want to stand on my soap box and scream ITS NOT FAIR! And I had my moments or two..but what I've learned is this. Even though I feel right now that I was dealt with crappy family genetics, they are mine. Heavenly Father has led me this far and i've done just fine. But this has made me think about my list. Am I making time for scripture study..exercise..temple? Probably not as much as I should. But I can try a little harder to be a little better. I CAN do this.
One of my favorite quotes from President Hinckley- I need to remember his words...
“You are doing the best you can, and that best results in good to yourself and to others. Do not nag yourself with a sense of failure. Get on your knees and ask for the blessings of the Lord;then stand on your feet and do what you are asked to do.”
― Gordon B. Hinckley
