Meanwhile, brothers and sisters, no one ever promised us that discipleship in the last days would be a picnic in the park." Neal A. Maxwell 17

    • “Do not suppose that God willfully causes that which, for His own purposes, He permits. When you know the plan and the purpose of it all, even these things will manifest a loving Father in Heaven” Boyd K. Packer “The Play and the Plan”  CES Broadcast,  May 1995  28
    • “Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:  The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,         Hath had elsewhere its setting,            And cometh from afar:           Not in entire forgetfulness,          And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come         From God, who is our home:” “Ode: Intimations of Immortality”, by William Wordsworth #6 When all else fails, remember your Heavenly Parents love you 29
