Seemed like an appropriate picture - as it's such a dreamy scene. :)
"Keep your eyes on your dreams."
It comes from a talk by Jeffrey R. Holland. And there's more. More goodness. :) He says:
"Keep your eyes on your dreams, however distant and far away."
I have dreams. I have big dreams. I dream of having my own family - of having a husband and children. I dream of having my own home - of not having to label my food after 14 years of roommates. ;) I dream of having my own photography business on the side while I raise my kids. Yes, I have dreams. And, at times they seem VERY distant and far away.
But, I know God doesn't want me to give up hope. I know that He's a God of miracles.
I am grateful for my Savior, who will make it all possible. These words have been very comforting to me the past few years:
I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”
I know it's true. And so, my friends, let's not give up. Keep dreaming. Keep believing. Even if those dreams seem SO far away.
I am grateful for a loving Savior and Father in Heaven who remind me when I'm going through "grief and pain" that one day I WILL obtain.
