Love the past but let your heart reside in the future.

We were driving along down a wide street last week and I looked up and saw this huge, magnificent tree covered in orange blossoms. A few days later we discovered a smaller tree right on our side street. All the flowers have left the trees that bloomed in the Spring but now we know about these vibrant orange flowers to look forward to next summer. The irony: It takes this intense heat to bring on this beauty. How like it all. Good and evil. Sadness and joy! Tumult and peace. . . . .
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
