Sunrise, Sunset.

It’s a new day and I’m fine.

Thank you to all of you who left such nice comments on my pathetic post yesterday and didn’t say things you should have said, like “Buck up, you sissy. It’s life, you chose it, and you have no real problems, so deal with it.” It was a hard day, one of those days where you call a “family meeting” and cry a little bit. But it ended. President Monson always quotes this one scripture (which is really about death and grief and stuff, but for my own purposes, it means crappy days will pass and things will get better) —

“For [her] anger endureth but a moment; in [her] favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” ~Psalms 30:5

and I have a testimony of that one other scripture (I’m totally making this up):

“For behold, when a mother of small children doth begin to despise her flocks, therefore she is weary and it must come to pass that she sleepeth.  And yea, when she doth offer up prayers that she might not harm her flocks, and doth lie in her bed and sleep, behold, the Lord will have mercy upon her and she shall rise again.”  ~Book of Stephanie 4:7

Amen.

  1. I’m sorry you were having a bad day, but I must say you recover quickly. Way to go.

    The “joy cometh in the morning” scripture is one of my favorites. I love your scripture from the Book of Stephanie.

  2. Ha! Read today’s post before yesterday’s, and it made it all the better.

    I might post your scripture above the bed. Or on the door. Or the kitchen cabinets. Or all of the above.

  3. Ugh Sleep deprivation…it can do crazy things to your mental health!
    Sometimes it isn’t until you feel “normal” again, that you look back on your bad day and think…oh heck! I was so tired, no wonder I had no energy.
    I am speaking from experience…I had a bad day yesterday, then I woke up this morning and said, “I’m going to have a DO OVER”. In other words, yesterday is the past, learn any lessons if there are lessons to be learnt, but basically it is over, move on, and make today a better on. Enjoy your DO OVER ;)

  4. You know, I’m just happy to see that I’m not the only one that feels this way sometimes. That’s a very good feeling.

    And, your scripture is my new favorite. It was definitely inspired, so it counts, right?

  5. Geeeeeniuuuuuusssss!

    Oh, and where can I get my hands on the book of Stephanie? I want to add a few of those to our seminary scripture chase list for next year!

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
