It's Amazing

It's amazing how life comes at us throwing trials in our way. The way we take these trials can really build our character or destroy us. As of late I have rediscovered the things that are most precious to me (My Family, the gospel, Heavenly Fathers tender love, what peace the atonement can give in our loves, the love Jesus has for us all, the power of prayer, the comfort of scriptures, priesthood blessings, blessing of the temple). It amazes me how quickly life can be completely turned upside down and we feel as we are being tossed about in a storm like a rag doll, but turning to our Heavenly Father can calm me on the inside to deal with the chaos going on about me. To give me the words I would never have on my own, to give me love and compassion when I thought it was not possible, to increase my love ten fold, and to humble me more then the smallest piece of dirt. I hope through all I do, many mistakes and all, that I can try and learn from my difficult times and grow and not become bitter and hateful. I am grateful for the peace I feel in the center of the storm. I am grateful to have a husband to helps to keep me grounded and stand by my side. I am truly blessed to have a great husband by my side.

Thanks for the post Chelsea. You are such a strong woman and I think you are way more amazing than you give yourself credit. Thank goodness at the times when we are the weakest the Savior's arms reach down and carry us back up - he truly helps those whose arms hang down in sorrow. We are so blessed to have that knowledge! So glad to hear that you are feeling the peace and blessings we pray most earnestly for your family to feel. We love you guys!

My patriarchal blessing says that I would learn from my sibling examples of righteousness in my growing up years. I guess I am still in those years
