One of the Few
I had a moment today. I was thinking about how many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints there are in the world...not many in comparison to the whole. But I'm one of them. It's probably one of the most significant blessings in my life that I often overlook. It's amazing that of all the life styles I could have been born into, I was sent to this one. It's the same with any of you out there who are members as well. It was then that I realized the incredible obligation to share what I have. We all do a little here and a little there, we try to be good examples and show people that we really aren't so wierd. But I mean really share it. The world out there is intense, and I'm often afraid to be criticized and hated. But what is there to lose? There is only everything to be gained by those we share with. It's time to step up to the plate. I commend those of you, and there are a lot, who are already amazing and good at this (like my incredible husband). I don't want to go out and preach, especially to all the good people out there, but I have something so beyond amazing that needs to be shared to everyone and I want more than anything for them to have it and to feel what I have felt. I have the good word. I know a lot of people have started this, but I also want to do as Elder Ballard has asked and talk more about the church here on the blog...you never know when it might benefit some passerby. Maybe I'm the only one who needs this, but if anyone feels the same that's even better. So join with me, and let's do this thing.
