There is such sense and purpose in Emersons' words. I feel that he and other similar thinkers paved the way, during that special Enlightenment period, for the world to accept and welcome the gospel of Jesus Christ back to the earth in it's entirety - for the gospel to be restored. He was so close, so right in so many ways, that he was almost prophetic.
After a day like yesterday, I was comforted to read this <<< quote. (thank goodness for pinterest and inspiration boards and pretty lettering and all that mush.) Today is a new day. And I will not be tied down by yesterday, by it's chaos and worries and failures. I will build a great day out of these hours that lay ahead. I will be better, and do better.
And that thinking? The opportunity to move on and change and learn and grow? It's all available to me, to you, because of the Atonement. It's a gift freely given, that brings me great joy, and heals my sorrows, if I let it. I am so grateful.
So, enough with yesterday's nonsense. It is past, it is gone. Today is beautiful if I let it be, and will surely bring with it plenty of new nonsense.
