From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/23/15:
|“If it were possible
to make your road very easy, you wouldn’t grow in strength. If you were
always forgiven for every mistake without effort on your part, you would
never receive the blessings of repentance. If everything were done for
you, you wouldn’t learn how to work, or gain self-confidence, or acquire
the power to change.”
Thanks so much, Susan!
