"...the Lord’s tender mercies do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence. Faithfulness and obedience enable us to receive these important gifts and, frequently, the Lord’s timing helps us to recognize them.
"We should not underestimate or overlook the power of the Lord’s tender mercies.
The simpleness, the sweetness, and the constancy of the tender mercies of the Lord will do much to fortify and protect us in the troubled times in which we do now and will yet live.
When words cannot provide the solace we need or express the joy we feel, when it is simply futile to attempt to explain that which is unexplainable, when logic and reason cannot yield adequate understanding about the injustices and inequities of life, when mortal experience and evaluation are insufficient to produce a desired outcome, and when it seems that perhaps we are so totally alone, truly we are blessed by the tender mercies of the Lord and made mighty even unto the power of deliverance (see 1 Ne. 1:20)." -Elder David A. Bednar

Every now and then, life throws you a curve ball. Unexpected, uncommon, unlucky curve balls. And every now and then, you get a hit.Whether you were trying or not, you somehow magically hit it right on target and the curve ball goes soaring through the air until eventually, it's gone. Sometimes, that curve ball is your life. The curve balls will never stop, but with a little hope and a little faith, we will always know how to soar. "Be not afraid of greatness. Some people are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them."

About a month ago when I was home getting my hair cut,
Cynthia couldn't help but mention a single gray hair she found on my head.
Thanks right? Freaked me out. I am only 22. I am not married and I have NO kids to blame.
I thought this was cruel and not right.
Well the other day found yet a 2nd gray hair on an entirely different part of my head.
Thats right folks I am going gray!
I guess this natural hair color things isn't going to stick around too long after all.
This is not cool, not in the least.
