Okay this isn't going to be the normal mushy valentines post. I have had some thoughts today at church and all day after that I have wanted to share. In relief society our lesson was on Jesus Christ and one of the things we talked about was the war in Heaven and what happened between Satan and Jesus. Well as we all know our Father in Heaven went with Jesus' plan. This plan allows us to have our agency to choose what we want to do.
Now, I kind of got a glimpse into how Satan's plan could be appealing. Jesus knew that he would be suffering in the Garden for us, whether or not we chose to accept the Atonement. But he still did it! Well if I knew that and it was up to me I think that Satan's plan sounds better.... That might sound bad and I am so grateful for my agency but if you think about it, don't we all want our children to do what is right and be the best person they can be? I can understand the wanting to 'force' them to do what is right.
I know that Christ's plan was by far the best and right choice but, do you get where my thoughts are?
I think that the ultimate Valentines was and still is our Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for the chance I have to make mistakes and become better for it. I need to work on letting my children choose for themselves. Maybe having this epiphany early in my motherhood will help me in the years to come. I am so grateful for Him suffering for my sins even when he knew there was a possibility that it might be in vain.
Sorry this is a little different but they are my thoughts at the close of this Day of love.
P.S. I do love my husband and best friend sooooooo much. He is amazing, a hard worker and very patient with me when I am not so much with him!!!!!!
I love you Cameron!
