So many thoughts
Lately I have had so many thoughts rambling around in my head. I got the Ensign with the conference talks in it and I have been reading them. They have had such meaning lately. Learning the Lessons of the Past by M Russell Ballard, One of the things is said is "Now there is a powerful lesson for all of you in this experience. When you are willing to listen and learn, some of life's most meaningful teachings come from those who have gone before you. They have walked where you are walking and have experiences many of the things you re experiencing. If you listen and respond to their counsel, they can help guide you toward choices that will be for your benefit and blessing and steer you away from decisions that can destroy you. As you look to your parents and others who have gone before you, you will find examples of faith, commitment, hard work, dedication, and sacrifice that you should strive to duplicate." There are many good points in this talk. I am thankful for the ensign for the leaders who spoke to us, for their thoughts and testimony. I have so many blessings, I am very thankful for them. What joy the knowledge of the gospel brings to me.
