What 2013 Has to Offer

At the beginning of the new year I wonder what is has to offer to me, to all of us. This morning as I read these words from President Henry B. Eyring's talk, "The Caregiver," (October 2012), I found one fraction of the answer.
With all your differences in personal circumstances and past experiences, I can tell you something of what lies ahead for you. As you keep the faith, you will find yourself invited by the Lord often to serve someone in need when it will not seem convenient. It may appear to be an unpleasant and perhaps even impossible task. When the call comes, it may seem you are not needed or that someone else could easily give the succor .... Remember that when the Lord lets us encounter someone in distress, we honor the good Samaritan for what he did not do as much as for what he did. He did not pass by on the other side even though the beaten traveler on the road was a stranger and perhaps and enemy. He did what he could for the beaten man and then put in place a specific plan for others to do more. 
 Opportunities to Serve.
