Be a Cork

“A pebble held close to the eye appears to be a gigantic obstacle. Cast on the ground, it is seen in perspective. Likewise, problems or trials in our lives need to be viewed in the perspective of scriptural doctrine. Otherwise they can easily overtake our vision, absorb our energy, and deprive us of the joy and beauty the Lord intends us to receive here on earth. Some people are like rocks thrown into a sea of problems. They are drowned by them. Be a cork. When submerged in a problem, fight to be free to bob up to serve again with happiness.”
Richard G. Scott, Ensign, May 1996

Oh how much I love the apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are uplifting, inspiring, and always touch me when I need it most.
