“All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, … purifies our hearts … and makes us more tender and charitable, … and it is through … toil and tribulation, that we gain the education … which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.”
- Elder Orson F. Whitney
Today, while nursing the baby in the mother's room at church, I came upon this quote. It was a reminder that all the things we go through, no matter how truly difficult, are for our betterment. God is refining us into the amazing masterpiece we can become. He sees so much greatness in us. Through each trial I've under gone, I've learned so much. That knowledge then blesses my family and I today. I'm thankful for these little reminders God sends my way. He truly is magnificent.
On a sidenote -- we were ready for church on time, looking spiffy in our Sunday best. Oh and we finally got a family picture done. Our first since Miss Tallia was born! Woot! Woot! I sure do love this little family of mine :)
