“We do not spend enough time meditating…We are entitled to spend some time with ourselves in introspection, in development.”
Pres. David O Mckay
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalms 19:14.
Story Behind the Art:
This is a self-portrait. My husband and I often go biking near our house and I love this place by the river. I love how the morning light is trying to break through the trees and scare away the darkness from the night before. I am facing the light with the darkness behind me to symbolize the beginning of a new day and a new resolve to face what that day may bring. Sometimes when we are going through trials, we are enveloped by darkness and have a hard time seeing the light peeking through or the small blessings and beauty around us. I like to start my day out with exercise, scripture reading, and meditation. My goal is to start my day off right spiritually before it starts off physically. I find this helps me face the day’s challenges better. Some days just don’t go the way I plan but I seem to handle it better when I put the Lord first and my life is in balance. When my children were young, I wish I had done more meditating and studying. I think I would have had more patience as a mother. Pondering on my life’s trials and experiences helps me to look at things eternally and helps me on my journey to become who God wants me to be. - Anne Bradham
