From My Friend, Susan's Friend, Katie, of NC - 02/13/15:
|“I recognize that, on
occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We
wonder, ‘Why?’ I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such
moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith
is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father’s
perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal
problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If
we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and
courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time.”
Russell M. Nelson

FINALLY:From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/11/16:
Little Kelvin's darkest day was when he was asked by his mathematics teacher to solve a problem on the board. The question was asking for the answer to 2 + 3.
He knew he couldn't solve that so he glanced towards his bright friend for help. His friend willing to help but fearing to speak out loud, showed him his palm as a silent indication to the answer.
So little Kelvin drew the palm.
