Flying into Albuquerque New Mexico is like nothing you have ever seen before.
No, seriously, it's just nothing.
But it was good to see Dustin get married, and to see how happy he was.
Having been in the temple and just having a lot of time to ponder, I thought about a quote from a book I'm reading called, "The Holy Secret", by James Ferrell.
"Perhaps you have become too attached to activities or pursuits that have become too precious. More precious, even, than what is holy."
That always strikes me in my "I should change" cord. How many times have we let our activities overtake those things that would bring us a little closer?
Closer to serving others, calling a friend, smiling at one who is downtrodden?
Closer to the One who can change a heart.
"Two roads diverge into a wood and I,
I take the one less traveled by,
And that made all the difference."
So what activities or pursuits are too precious for you?
And for me?
It may seem like nothing. But it is something.
And that change will make all the difference.
