Secret #17

I haven't posted in a long time. I don't have much time these days with which to spend doing much else than being incredibly happy (and slightly conflicted, albeit) and not wanting my days to turn to nights, and back into days again.

Alas, the world continues turning, daytime becomes nighttime, the world waits for the sun to rise, and it comes alive again.

The other night I went to a concert featuring a fantastic artist named Tyrone Wells. It was wonderful, for many reasons, the following being one of them.

"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."
13th Article of Faith

Tyrone isn't LDS, although probably most of us who didn't know much about him thought he was, from the way he acted during the show, and even some of the things he said.

I do know, however, that some of the songs that man sang filled my soul with the Spirit of the Lord, even if he didn't mean it to. The songs weren't religious at all, just happy. His music just made you feel good, and that's my point.

Each of us has been blessed with the Light of Christ, no matter who you are. All that is good comes of the Lord. And he shone with a light of goodness and happiness, the Light of Christ, in a way that I loved. He was just one of those people who makes you want to be a better person.

Doesn't that just brighten your day?
