Finding perspective, finding hope,

"I began to think that continuing to have inchoate questions about what went on in the world was a luxury. Not only that, but I was gathering parasites"

There are those neat moments of discovery that people have and the things they say about them.

I liked this one.

Forgiveness is sweet -- such a powerful perspective, well told. It is easy to forget that we are all children (a "child of God" is a child first).

I also liked

I am encircled…eternally in the arms of his love.

and finally

I'm actually working toward full activity. I've rearranged my work schedule so that I can go to Church again and I'm looking forward to Conference.

Yesterday marked six years of Mormondom, and I think I have at least another six left in me.


I'm always grateful to find hope in the midst of so much trial.

I'll be back from vacation, and back on the internet in about nine or ten days. Just in time to help unload my parents I suspect. Back to posting on grief, loss, love, the Shangi-la Diet, and the amazing places people find hope.

Wish you all well, with love, hope and faith.

Stephen
