"The fight for freedom is God's fight.
So when a man stands for freedom he stands with God.
And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God.
A man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."
--Ezra Taft Benson

Spinning my wheels

Thank goodness it is Friday.  Yesterday as I was cleaning out my car I heard my little boy yell Help!  I couldn't but help to just start laughing.  As I was looking at him all that came to my mind is well that is exactly how I have been feeling lately.  This last week I have felt that I have been spinning my wheels trying to get somewhere fast.  But I haven't really got anywhere because I have been stuck in a mud hole just like my son.  But as my son was yelling for me to help him I realized that is exactly what I need to be doing more.  I need to be asking for my Heavenly Father to help me and I need to have enough faith in him that he will help me and my husband get out of this hole that we are stuck in.

As the Lord’s prophet, President Monson counsels: “At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end—no dawn to break the night’s darkness. … We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face.” 

I talked with my husband this morning.  He is in good spirits and has a great attitude.  He enjoys being with the other Political Prisoners in his pod.  They all inspire each other and give each other hope.  He is so impressed with Jerry DeLemus and the strength that he has. He loves listening to him talk from the bible and gives them mini sermons daily.  I am grateful for those men who are helping to make my husbands stay a little brighter.   

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Enjoy this wonderful weather.
