The Thick of Thin Things....

"We become so caught up in the busyness of our lives. Were we to step back, however, and take a good look at what we're doing, we may find that we have immersed ourselves in the "thick of thin things." In other words, too often, we spend most of our time taking care of the things which do not really matter much at all in the grand scheme of things, neglecting those more important causes." Thomas S. Monson, November 2009 Ensign

I like this quote! It’s just a good reminder to be mindful of what we are immersing ourselves in on a daily basis. It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the things that don’t matter at the expense of things that really do.

Even the scriptures caution us that we’re losing the spirit in our lives when important things become unimportant and trivial things are suddenly of great importance to us.

It’s a nice combination to have it in scripture but also reiterated by our prophet. I’m grateful for both!
