Really recently needed...
I was driving home tonight thinking of how blessed we are in so many things and I was thinking what would we ever do without electricity? and I actually said to Heavenly Father, "Can you imagine where we would be without electricity?" and then thought..."duh of course He can. He's been here long before electricity, but He gave man the ability to grow little by little and every generation has found out things that the previous generations didn't know and it will keep going. imagine where we will be in just 5 years!. I put a picture of this bridge, because it's famous for something at the U and we went on a feild trip there and I thought it was cool. anyway, the following are some quotes that have really inspired me in the last two weeks.
"Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you're misunderstood.” -Christina Norris quoting Charles
