This is Steph… my friend from BYU since oh… 1996. I was a newbie and she showed me the ropes at work and on campus. If you need a campus tour, she’s your gal. We still keep in touch. She, in Alaska, I, in Utah. Last month we were instant messaging back and forth (isn’t technology fabulous?!). We were talking (rather… typing) about all the fabulous blessings/hardships/callings we deal with in this life. Even after a hard day … and realizing things were not going to get much easier in the immediate future … what did she say?
“Tie on your bonnet, sister, we’re going to make it to Zion!”
Oh, how I laughed.
I absolutely loved it!
I’m not clever enough to think of AWESOME things like that.
Best Encouraging Thoughts EVER!
I hope I remember it always, especially when I’m melting into a puddle of tears.
We can do it people.
“We must not lose faith. We will make it to Zion! We will!”
