I'm a member of the Herriman South Stake and this article brings tears to
my eyes. What wasn't mentioned is that as stated in a letter read in
church yesterday, our stake was asked to build this float by the First
Presidency. No wonder they've been so stressed!Heavenly Father
does care about the little things, even something as basic as glitter.
Those with eyes to see and ears to hear will appreciate this story.
Red Corvette,You might find the subject of the prayer banal (though
having been in various types of performances, I can understand the panic she
felt) but her point is not really the glitter. Rather that the Stake had a need
(superficial though it may seem) and that without other recourse (having clearly
done all they could) she turned to our Heavenly Father and with good result.I am always a little leery of such stories too. I am well aware that
not all prayers are answered and sometimes folks are in desperate circumstances.
I have taken my complaints to God. All I can say is that I feel he will mete
out justice for all of our ills and mercy for the problems we helped create if
we will put our hands in his and walk with him in his way and time. Through
that association, we learn to see better our lives and the lives of those we can
touch (if we are willing).Peace. And enjoy the 'vette. Must
be a sweet ride.
Heavenly Father cares about the little things too. Sometimes he uses odd or
otherwise meaningless circumstances to build our faith. This hasn't
happened to you?
