You know, we talked about this exact thing in Relief Society on Sunday. The whole entire natural world typifies Christ through rebirth, growth, change and eventually yes, death. We all are here in this beautiful world that our maker created for us. Now is the time to decided to look around and see that beauty. One of my favorite things in the entire world is the sky--from the sunrise to the stars--I am in love with it. I live to be outside, basking in that life giving light. As I take the time to do this, I begin to see things differently, and get an eternal perspective. Oh how crushingly grateful I am for this world.

It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to one or other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no "ordinary" people. You have never talked to a mere mortal.
My parents, my heroes.
My parents, my heroes.

I am in love with a boy. Ingrid Michaelson happens to be the theme today. Sometimes you can't see what will happen. I certainly can't but yes in all of our lives, everything will be okay. This life is our time to learn and figure things out, our time to trust in that supreme maker, our Heavenly Father. He does see, so when I don't I trust in the one who can. I strive to listen to him and hope that this can only bring good. I am trusting in you Father. Take care of that boy that I love. Take good good care of him.

Well we step into the unknown, every time we step into the darkness. We can fear that darkness all we want but it is still there. I propose we walk head first into the darkness, eyes open and ready to see and learn. We may stumble, fall but then we'll begin to see. Let us fear no fate on this night. For as you know it will all turn out just the way it needs to be.
