Life is not always perfect or fun or easy. As a matter of fact, sometimes it's just plain HARD!!! I've had some struggles of my own the past few months and it has taught me a great deal and also reminded me of what is truly important. I've learned that we ARE stronger than we think! Heavenly Father knows us and He knows what our abilities are, especially when we doubt, He knows. I've learned that the Atonement is a miracle that can heal us is many ways. I'm reminded how much I love my elder brother, Jesus Christ and so desperately need him in my life. I've have been reminded what a sweet, special blessing my children are and that my Heavenly Father often shows His love for me through them; they are so loving and patient with me. I've learned how important it is to continually fill our spiritual reservoir so when the storms come, and they will come, that we are prepared to face them. My love for Ran has increased! Our covenants made in the Temple are real and powerful. I completely believe with my entire soul that he and I were together before this life; we will be after. I've learned how much Satan wishes to destroy families. He is real yet, with Christ on our side he has NO power! My trials will be different from yours but we will ALL have trials. That is our purpose on earth, to be tested and prove ourselves to our Father in Heaven. I honestly believe that I did not actually realize in the pre-existence how HARD this life could be or maybe I've just forgotten the faith I knew my Heavenly Father had in me and that no matter what, I would NOT fail!!! I am stronger. My love for my Savior has grown. My need for Him has increased. So if we are here to prove ourselves by turning to Christ through our trials, at least for this one I can check it off.
I'm making it!
Heavenly Father, I know you are proud~
