Your Happily Ever After

14 May 2010

I just read this amazing talk by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf Second Counselor in the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is so cute! You have to read it. It is meant for the young women but whatever, I liked it.
He started off by reading the first part in the Young Women Personal Progress book “You are a beloved daughter of Heavenly Father, prepared to come to the earth at this particular time for a sacred and glorious purpose." He then went on to say "isn’t it remarkable to know that our eternal Heavenly Father knows you, hears you, watches over you, and loves you with an infinite love? In fact, His love for you is so great that He has granted you this earthly life as a precious gift of “once upon a time,” complete with your own true story of adventure, trial, and opportunities for greatness, nobility, courage, and love. And, most glorious of all, He offers you a gift beyond price and comprehension. Heavenly Father offers to you the greatest gift of all—eternal life—and the opportunity and infinite blessing of your own “happily ever after.” But such a blessing does not come without a price. It is not given simply because you desire it. It comes only through understanding who you are and what you must become in order to be worthy of such a gift. For a moment, think back about your favorite fairy tale. In that story the main character may be a princess or a peasant; she might be a mermaid or a milkmaid, a ruler or a servant. You will find one thing all have in common: they must overcome adversity."

*This is so true, even in fairy-tales, all of the characters go through some kind of problem. Cinderella? Wicked step-mother and step-sisters and having to be their servant. Belle? living in a castle with a beast HELLO! Sleeping Beauty? kidnapped from her parents and lied to about who she was. They all have some kind of adversity, but you know what else they all have in common? Love and Happily-Ever-After. Our Heavenly Father loves us sooooo much, and what he wants more than anything... is for us to have our own happily ever after. None of us are perfect, but he provided us with a Savior, that through him we might become perfect. Thus, enabling us to enjoy the greatest blessing he has to offer us. Eternal life with our loved ones.
