Life's Mission

"Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished. If you're alive, it isn't." ~Richard Bach

That puts things into perspective, doesn't it? It doesn't matter whether I'm tired, happy, sad, discouraged or uplifted. If I'm still here, I still have things I need to do.

For me, today that includes a couple of early meetings, testimony meeting, Primary [but with no specific responsibilities today beyond just being there and soaking it all in], then fixing dinner and having a little family time. Sounds like a lovely day to me.

I'm grateful that I still have a mission here and that it matters. Happy Sunday!

I have a "soak it all in" day today too. Looking forward to it as I've had a lot of "things" going on lately! ;o) Have a wonderful day enjoying church and family!

I love Sundays before during and after church. I love now that NFL has started and Robert is more "chillaxed" on Sundays. I also love that we have the nine am church- it's makes for such a great afternoon and evenign.
I love the quote too, I'm glad I have more to do!
You rock sister M!

I was trying to explain this same concept to Addie tonight when we were talking about why some people have died but other people haven't. Love this quote, Jan. And love your happy always uplifting outlook on life!
