"We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count."
Neal A. Maxwell
"When we learn to read the story of Jesus and see it as the story of the love of God, doing for us what we could not do for ourselves--that insight produces, again and again, a sense of astonished gratitude which is very near the heart of authentic Christian experience."
Though the fig tree should not blossom
And there be no fruit on the vines,
Though the yield of the olive should fail
And the fields produce no food,
Though the flock should be cut off from the fold
And there be no cattle in the stalls,
Yet I will exult in the LORD,
I will rejoice in the God oft y salvation.
The Lord God is my strength,
And He has made my feet like hinds' feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.
