Finding the Light

I just was catching up on some of the blogs and I came across my friend Sarah's and I hope she really doesn't mind me copying it, but it really is something that I needed to hear today.

I had a sort of personal episode that I had to relive again and seek for help from my wonderful husband. I have to say I am so grateful for the Priesthood in my home. I am eternally thankful to my Savior for his loving Atonement and all the sacrifices he has made for ME. I am so happy that I have a wonderful Father in Heaven that loves me so and watches over me. I know he knows me better than I know myself.

I also have to point out along with my all knowing Heavenly Father he has sent me angels to protect and watch over me... he has sent me my sisters. This is the 3rd time that he has brought them to me in the last month when I needed them the most. It is amazing to me that as soon as the clouds roll in Linsy and Amber have both called.

After talking to Geoff and getting a Priesthood blessing I came upon this quote;

"This is Jeffrey R. Holland. He is one of the twelve living apostles on the earth today. Just as Christ had apostles on the earth in his time, He has appointed them in our time as well. I love to hear the words of inspired leaders of Christ's restored gospel on the earth today. Here is just one of many statements that has touched my heart..."-from my friend Sarah.

"First of all, I want you to be proud you are a woman. I want you to feel the reality of what that means, to know who you truly are. You are literally a spirit daughter of heavenly parents with a divine nature and an eternal destiny. That surpassing truth should be fixed deep in your soul and be fundamental to every decision you make as you grow into mature womanhood. There could never be a greater authentication of your dignity, your worth, your privileges, and your promise. Your Father in Heaven knows your name and knows your circumstance. He hears your prayers. He knows your hopes and dreams, including your fears and frustrations. And He knows what you can become through faith in Him."

Thank you Sarah!
