I had a busy day today. I learned some things, and I also learned some things about myself. Although I tend to feel overwhelmed when I look around at all there is to be done, and how big the world is, and how many people are in it, I feel like I gained a little bit of insight today.

I am grateful that I live by faith. I am so grateful that there is a plan for my life, and that I have a Creator who loves me, and loves the people I care about, and loves all people everywhere. I am so very grateful that I have a part in His plan.

When I look at a photo of the earth I get a little bit freaked out. How can I live up here in Texas and send my son, my Little Prince, all the way down to the bottom of the world to be a missionary in Argentina? It's so very, very far away. Then I remember that it isn't so much "how" I can do this, but why:

"And righteousness will I send down out of heaven; and truth will I send forth out of the earth, to bear testimony of mine Only Begotten; his resurrection from the dead; yea, and also the resurrection of all men; and righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare, an Holy City, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion, a New Jerusalem." Moses 7:62
