And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

     Now….on the chance that I may look like a moron…I will admit that I don’t know as much about the life of Christ and His gospel as I THINK I should.  I also know that this is a common feeling among most people….there is so much to know and we are always learning so we never truly feel that we really have a true grasp on things eternal and that we are always running to catch up.  Having said that…. here is a perfect example to me that when you prayerfully search for new insight….for light and knowledge, with a deepening desire to build that most important relationship with your Savior, He will bless your efforts.

     Now having said that…. I KNOW to depths of my soul the truthfulness of His life, mission, gospel and that He lives still. My testimony is beyond question….it is just that I am a details person and so to focus on those little tiny smidges of knowledge and understanding are really key to me.  For the most part I think they are more the “DUH” moments that I haven’t really given much thought to that will really open up my Savior’s life to me….(you know all those little things that we take for granted and gloss over quickly)….turning this study into a wealth of “AH HA” moments.  I know He lived/lives and is the son of God and my elder brother but he also lived this life the same as we do (okay…perfectly but He lived it too) with all the trials and temptations and learning curves we are subject to. It just never occurred to me that His mind would be veiled like ours…that He had no memory of where He had come from, His role in the plan or in the creation of this world.  His life came with the blinders too so that He could authentically go thru all that we will. All this so He could know how best to help us and to KNOW/understand exactly what we are facing, struggles and weaknesses. I know this is not a new insight and probably most of you have already thought about this… but as I studied today this one “small” detail that really gave me more than a few minutes of pondering, a new insight and understanding…line upon line.


     The Lord is always there waiting for us to open the door to Him to enable Him to  bless us.  As you prayerfully search for light and knowledge, with a deepening desire to build that most important relationship with your Savior, the things we may have quickly skipped over in the past will cause us to pause and ponder.
