That's it.

If I can have those, I don't need anything else. I don't want to be rich, or famous, or the instigator behind a massive change in the world. I don't want an Olympic medal or a glamorous job. I'll be okay living with just enough to get by, wherever and however it happens... maybe teaching Primary for a couple of decades.

I realized that I've been stressing about things in life that don't really matter to me - what I'm going to do professionally... how I'm going to fix our broken sprinkler system... thoughts about my business... mundane things like that - when I have pretty much everything I need in life already.

I may not be married, or really understand how I could fall in love with a girl just yet... but hey - there's nothing wrong with not understanding yet. That's where faith comes in. And in the meantime...

I have great opportunities to share the peace and hope I've found in life, time to spend with my family, and the promise that, if I'm faithful, I'll receive every blessing God has in store for me.
