Living for today.

I really enjoy when i get questions about my religious beliefs and sometimes it is hard for me to know all the answers right away, i always hope i can answer correctly but sometimes questions are brought to my attention and then it begins to constantly be a question in the back of my mind. I did not actively pursue an answer to this question but while on facebook the other day, yes facebook, i found such a sweet quote on my cousins page that answers my question perfectly-

"The principle reason the Church was organized is to make life sweet today, to give contentment to the heart today, to bring salvation for today... some of us look forward to a time in the future, but today is part of eternity."

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has brought immense amounts of happiness to my everyday life.
