I Know

I'm not the most intelligent person on the planet.  Heck, I can't help my 12 year old with his math homework any more!  But there are a few things that I do know.

I know that my Redeemer lives.  Jesus Christ came to this earth to set an example for us to follow.  He suffered and died to atone for the sins of the world and he rose again that we too may overcome death.

I also know that this life is difficult.  Trials and troubles come our way no matter who we are.  But we can have hope that things will be better because of Jesus Christ.

In the Book of Mormon there is a scripture that I love.  It's found in Moroni 7:41 - And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection to be raised unto life eternal, and this because of your faith in him according to the promise.


We can find joy and peace even in the darkest times because we can have hope for life eternal.  This life won't last forever.  Time will pass.  Our trials will end and we will be better for it all.  


My prayer for you is that you can find hope and peace through the Savior, Jesus Christ.  I know that He lives.  I know that He loves us.


Have a very happy Easter!

This is beautiful and true.

I've been dealing with a difficult trial regarding my elderly parents. My mom has been taking care of my dad ever since his stroke 10 or 11 years ago, and they have required assistance from Hubby and me. Dad had another stroke four weeks ago, and now he is completely dependent in every way, and requires 24 hour care. My mom is in no way able to care for him at home now, and he is at a nearby nursing home. I visit him twice a day, as well as helping Mom prepare to apply for long term care benefits for Dad. The hardest thing is getting my mom to face reality. When she finally does, two days later she back tracks and goes into denial again, thinking Dad can come home. It is SOOO hard being the bad guy who tells her Dad will not be getting well. Yes, the Lord could heal him completely. But it certainly does not appear to be the Lord's will to do so.

The good news is the many things I am learning about service and compassion. The best news is that Sunday Will Come.
