A little talk

My little Ryleigh is sleeping.... I had a few minutes to myself before something else distracts me... I wanted to write about this talk I read. I received it from a dear lady, client, and friend. Linda- she's in the Mo-Tab with Diane. Anyway, after reading this I had such great peace that I wanted to share it, or parts... "A Heavenly Manifestation Given to Heber Q. Hale; President of the Boise stake." - I am going to paraphrase until it gets to my favorite part. Basically he was staying at a friends home, he is usually a very light sleeper and was not disturbed in the slightest. He remembers passing into the world of spirits. Although they did not call it death they called it something like new birth. He then says how similar the spirit and mortality world are. He was shone many things but my very favorite part is when he said "My mind was quite contented on the point that mothers will again receive into their arms their children who died in infancy and will be fully satisfied; but the fact remains that the entrance into the world of spirits is not and inhibition of growth, but the greatest opportunity for development. Babies are adult spirits in infant bodies." he goes on and describes more of the things he sees and right as he is leaving he sees women preparing apparel. And he knows it is in preparation of someone to come. He then was admonished "If you knew the joy and the glorious mission that awaits him here, you would not ask to have him longer detained upon the earth. The will of the Lord can be done on earth as it is in Heaven only when we resign completely to His will and let His will be done in and through us. On account of selfishness of men and the assertion of the personal will against the will of God, many persons who might otherwise have been taken in innocence and peace have been permitted to live and have passed a life of suffering and misery, or debauchery and crime, and have lived to their own peril. Man and women and children are often called to missions of great importance on the other side, and some respond gladly while other refuse to go and their loved ones will not give them up. Also many die because they have not the faith to be healed. Other yet, live long and pass out of the world of mortals without and special manifestation or action of the Divine Will. When a man(baby) is stricken ill, the question of prime is not, " is he going to live or die?" What matters is weather he live or die so long as the will of the Father is done. Surely we (I) can trust him (Alex)with God!" And lastly he says, " To a righteous person, birth into the world of spirit is a glorious privilege and blessing. The greatest in the family of the Father have not usually been permitted to tarry longer in the flesh than to perform a certain mission. They are called to the world of spirit where the field is greater and workers are fewer. This earthly mission may, therefor, be long or short, as the Father wills.

You can probably see why this was so special to me. It helped so much. So we have had a lot more normal days and feel really good about everything... If you want to read the whole thing It is all amazing.

That IS a super great talk - Thank Heaven for friends who care enough to share a sweet testimony like that. I'm so glad you are finding more peace. It's wonderful to know that Heaven sends Angels to do the things we all wish we could do.

"I believe our Heavenly Father's everlasting purpose for His children is generally achieved by the small and simple things we do for one another." Elder M. Russell Ballard

She was so great to give you that article. I'm glad Heaven is watching over your family.
