A few weeks ago
On a cold dark winter’s night
The stars seemed aglow
Millions, beautiful and bright

I turned to read again
With great wonder and awe
About the creation
What Moses learned from God

There are worlds without number!
Created by the Son
Each through His priesthood order
For God’s purposed, done

Hubble scientists say
We are but one galaxy
Of billions far away
All for His work and glory

To fathom that He knows me
And waits for my return
Helps me ponder where I’m going
And for what do I yearn?

I am a part of all that I see
The light which I fell
From God there is no hiding
I know He is real

I want to please Him
And tell others, too
He is the reason
I smile anew

    LDS.org; General Conference; … A few weeks ago, on a cold, dark winter’s night, my wife, … so large and so vast are God’s creations.
  2. I found the beginnings of this poem and finished it only to find that I had completed it and published it a while ago. How long has it been since you saw a night sky filled with stars?  I was at my parents and it was so cold I didn’t last long! No shooting stars for me!

Starting today, I will pray
And reach out to just ‘one’
To share the Lord’s love this way-
As my gift to the Son
Put Your Trust in the Lord

“We are simply asking all members to pray, knowing that if every member, young and old, will reach out to just ‘one’ between now and Christmas, millions will feel the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a wonderful gift to the Savior.”

—M. Russell Ballard, “Put Your Trust in the Lord

Our faith garners us the assurance

That the world will be a better place

As we join to give assistance

And share our bounties from God’s grace

All created by the Son
Through the priesthood, order
For God’s purposes, done

Hubble scientists say
We are, but one galaxy
Of billions, far away
All for His work and glory

To bring to pass salvation
For His spirit children
Some, to eternally station
Where He can be with them

For a place He prepares
Make we make room for Him in our hearts
In our journey, He shares
And awaits us beyond the stars

This is My Work and Glory

I surrender, Heavenly Father
I have wanted all the wrong things
I can’t take one step farther
Without what repentance brings

Pride- what is that?
I have lost control
Imprisoned- is where I’m at
I am trapped in a hole

I have fallen prey
To the drug of pleasure
I have lost my way
And given up life’s treasure

I want to feel peace,
Joy, and happiness
To have insanity cease
And through Thy Son be blessed

I want to feel wrapped in love
As a submissive child
I want to rise above
Being base and wild

That is why this day
I have turned to Thee
To repent, cry, and pray
And discover the free me

pondering:
O That Cunning Plan of the Evil One
Elder M. Russell Ballard
Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
Ensign, November 2010,

There is hope for the addicted, and this hope comes through the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.
