"Your Heavenly Father loves you--each of you. That love never changes. It is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank account. It is not changed by your talents and abilities. It is simply there for you when you are sad or happy, discouraged or hopeful. God's love is there for you, whether or not you feel you deserve love. It is simply always there."--President Thomas S. Monson
In this time of changing values, changing morals, and an ever-changing world, isn't it wonderful to know that one thing never changes? Our Father's love for us never changes. Like the loving Parent He is, He is always on our side, always there to hold us up when we can no longer hold up ourselves.
To me, the above quote is more than comforting. It is a love-filled reminder that whatever we go through, whatever trials we must endure, the Father knows of them and is there to wipe away our tears, to hold our hand, to wrap a loving arm around our shoulders.
Joy for today: knowing that Father is there. Always.
