              To Know...

Well, there they are and there they go,
       the smartest people who always know
the answers to most of lifeís hard tests
       always doing better than all the rest.

Of the requirements in life, on a scale of ten,
       their gifts are far above the average men.
Life is easy for them, they breeze right through,
       I envy the brilliant, their challenges are few.

They came from the other side of the veil
       with super talents to help good prevail.
They promised the gift wouldnít go to their head,
       yet, now they boast in themselves instead.

Many talk themselves out of believing in God,
       for a hoped for "scientific" belief, sounding odd.
They listen to others who believe the same things.
       Iíve wondered what peace that theory brings?

Now, me, on the other hand, Iím not the same.
       When it comes to smarts, they put me to shame.
Iím a few clicks under what life demands,
       for me to make it, requires helping hands.

Now that need has created a heavenly bond,
       one I wouldnít trade for a magic wand.
Because of His need I have every hour,
       I get to experience the Lordís great power.

Only a few truly know that the Savior lives
       and the joy His loving, guiding hand gives.
But to know that truth, I wouldnít trade
       all the money in the world that was ever made.

Dadís Testimony...

Though Iím rough around the edges, not very polished., made my share of mistakes, perhaps more, my love for the Savior is unmatched. There are those who love Him as much, but there is none who love Him more. I donít think about Him from time to time, or when I pray. I can honestly say there is never a moment when He isnít on my mind. I donít pray daily or even morning and night; I pray all day long. There is never a time when I am not in a state of prayer.

Of all the blessings He has personally endowed me with, my greatest blessing is my inability to make it on my own. Life requires a certain level of ability to make it. Some people come in at 120, 130% or more of that mark. The everyday requirements, the struggles, etc. are easy for them. But I come in there at about 95 to 96%. Everyday, not having quite enough to make it. This inability has resulted in a tremendous need for the Lord in my life. This tremendous need, through many personal experiences, has turned into a sure knowledge that the Savior lives. If I know anything for an absolute certainty, I know this: He lives. And I know that He loves us and I know that He leads, guides and blesses those who love Him  ...and seek Him.
