Sunny Days

As I sit at my desk, I glance out the window, the day is bright and sunny.  I thought to myself, sunny days sometimes seem like cover-ups to mask over our world around us, struggling economy, a society losing morality, and a life spiralling down.

As I revert back to reality and put a stop to my pity party, a talk " Make Yours a Great Life " came to my mind.  There are a few key phrase from it I would like to share....

"Your future is not determined by the conditions around you"

"The challenges you face will serve to strengthen you as you move forward with your life."

"There are no better days than these days, because these are your days."

" He (Jesus Christ) is the real reason each of us has a bright future."

I add my testimony to Paris's.  Don't allow where you are, who you were, your conditions/situations, or even the people around you determine your happiness.  See sunny days as a gift from God!  Life is not about what we were, but who we become.  Enjoy life, these are our days!


  1. that is so true! my favorite hymn is "there is sunshine in my soul today" it just rings so true to us! i love to look and appreciate all the beauty that we have around us! God created everything in this world for the pleasing of our eyes and to help us! sunny days is one of those!

  2. I really like this post Elder Bankhead. As I think about how much shade there is when the sun is shining, I also think about how much the light encompasses the darkness and how it makes people happy. The Gospel to me is the light that we all need:)

  3. I loved this post. I agree that we are above our circumstances. Since God is no respector of persons we can all rise and be happy. It is a choice. Christ suffered for us ALL.

  4. I borrowed some quotes.. hope you dont mind.. I love watching the video of Paris.. He is so legit..
    These are our days!! Lets make the most of them!
