The eternal marriage centers on Christ
From that crowning celestial moment

Spiritual eyes see afar
Into the distance
Unto a guiding star
Through perseverance

Spiritual ears hear the sound
Of the trumpet’s call
Clear warnings are found
Lest a family fall

Spiritual voices speak
And testify of light
Discernment for the meek
Making knowledge bright

Pondering Elder Bednar
Ensign May 2010
“I bear witness that parents who consistently read and talk about the Book of Mormon with their children, who share testimony spontaneously with their children, and who invite children as gospel learners to act and not merely be acted upon will be blessed with eyes that can see afar off (see Moses 6:27) and with ears that can hear the sound of the trumpet (see Ezekiel 33:2–16). The spiritual discernment and inspiration you will receive from the combination of these three holy habits will enable you to stand as watchmen on the tower for your families—“watching . . . with all perseverance” (Ephesians 6:18)—to the blessing of your immediate family and your future posterity. I so promise and testify in the sacred name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.”

I have a treasure that I hold
A pearl of great price
Discovered from the days of old
It shines before my eyes

Its reflection is so clear
It helps me to see
All in life that is dear
Including me

Matthew 13:46
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price,
went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

A treasure to behold
A pearl of great price
A gift from days of old
Does shine before faith’s eyes

As elusive as a moonbeam
And fragile as an orchid
A testimony can brightly beam
Or wilt much that we forget

Light comes to the mind
Warmly… the bosom burns
Doubt is left behind
Spiritually one learns

Personal Revelation and Testimony by Sister Barbara Thompson

President Harold B. Lee: “Testimony is as elusive as a moonbeam; it’s as fragile as an orchid; you have to recapture it every morning of your life,”

I have joined a book club for general conference—–

The Wake-up Call

Let that wake-up call
Stir you to action
Whether great or small
Serve with compassion

As you give up a crust
To help someone in need
You receive so much
Gratitude indeed

You cannot give a crust to the Lord
without receiving a loaf in return –
Marion G Romney

You have to stretch much
To grow and become
