I believe in Christ

I've had a lot of things on my mind lately.
The past, the present, the future...
you know, small things like that.

Tonight, as I worked on a quilt that will someday
be my new bedspread,
I decided to listen to a talk by Richard G. Scott.
He is one of 12 apostles of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Perhaps most importantly,
he's a special witness of Jesus Christ.

Listening to him share his own testimony of Christ
and of the blessing of repentance and forgiveness
I was reminded that I know the truth of those things too.
I know that Jesus Christ lives.
I know we have a Heavenly Father and that he loves you and me.
He loves the very worst sinner as much
as the new born child.
I learned that principle several years back -
that no matter what we do -
he loves us tremendously.
He always will.
That it is never too late to repent.
We have never done anything too wrong
that we can't be forgiven.
That is the blessing of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
His perfect sacrifice for each of us.
He did it, so we could repent.
So we could be forgiven.
So we could become clean again.
I will forever be in his debt.
It is His love I seek to feel
and His love I hope to emulate.
