Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Short post - Can fame or good fortune bring joy like little children? Then why do we limit our children?

I do not believe fame, or good fortune has the power to please a soul like the smile of your own one year old child. How have so many of us been duped into delaying marriage and subsequently limiting our posterity? The great gift of a mortal body is its ability to marry and create a family of our own. It is the gift we won for our faithfulness in the premortal life, and in his jealousy (for Satan's punishment is that he cannot have a body, he cannot experience marriage and family) the adversary loves to put our hearts on other treasures that moth eats and rust corrupts until we have moved on to the next life and can only look back with unimaginable regret at the past days of opportunity and only look forward with fear and trepidation that, having taken the gift so lightly in the days of probation it will not continue eternally.
