The Long and Climbing Hill
Speaking of mysterious, I was rushing around yesterday morning trying to get ready to meet my mother-in-law and niece, Emily at the Temple. I jumped into the car, clothes and recommend in hand and was feeling excited to be removed from some of the chaos in my life and just feel peace. Well, I was driving up Sunset Drive (which is an incline of sizeable proportion!) and gaining some momentum and SPEED to catch the light to turn onto Highway 89, when to my horror, at the peak of my acceleration and a menial glance to the right, I realized that I was being clocked by a police officer. DANG IT, the lights flipped on! My nausea returned (not due to the Chemotherapy regime :)!) and I awaited the impending doom.
I know deep down inside that all of these things will give me experience, and will be for my good (D&C 122:7), if I do not shrink at this trial or falter in my faith and resolve. I continue to be so grateful for all of your love and support. Thank you for sharing in this challenge! I know that the push to the top of the hill of life is much easier and pleasant with the love and blessing of a great family and friends. I’ll sign off with a quote from C.S. Lewis:
“We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.”
Whatever our station on the LONG AND CLIMBING HILL, I hope we can all put our trust and faith in Him who created us all and loves us without end (Isaiah 41:13).
Love to you,
