I think the thing I noticed today (and other days) is that the Lord offers us hope. Daryl and I walked and talked of complicated relationships and parenting dilemmas. While we came to no apparent solutions we realized that the talking keeps Daryl and I together. And while we don't yet have solutions, we do have hope for the future, both immediate and distant. We trust in the Lord.
The Lord's tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindness, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ. Truly, the Lord suits "his mercies according to the conditions of the children of men." (D&C 46:15)
I testify that the tender mercies of the Lord are real and that they do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence. Often, the Lord's timing of his tender mercies helps us to both discern and acknowledge them.
Each of us can have eyes to see clearly and ears to hear distinctly the tender mercies of the Lord as they strengthen and assist us in these latter days.
