An unexpected lesson

I'd like to share an experience I had when I was a child. There was a bird, I don't remember what kind, and for some strange reason it flew into the window of our house. Crashed right into it. I suppose it didn't know there was glass. But then it got up and did it again. Over and over, again and again. Just kept crashing into our window. This went on for quite some time. I was only 10 or so, and watching this happen made me sad and quite confused. Why was the bird doing that? Didn't it see it was hurting itself?

As I reflect on this memory I realize that must be how Heavenly Father feels watching us. I'm sure he too thinks, "Why do they keep doing that? Don't they know they are going to get hurt?"

It is my belief that He feels deeply emotional watching us in the midst of our trials. He loves us. We are His children.

Likewise, our Savior has gone through all of our pains, when he atoned for us. He knows how we feel. He felt the same pain, both physical and emotional.

I know that we are not alone. The two most important people that there are; Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, are going through our ups and downs along side us. They love us more than we can imagine. I have felt their love for me and testify that we can feel comfort and strength from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in our times of difficulty.
