Reflections of 2007
January is almost over and 2008 is in full swing. Before it is too distant of a memory I thought I'd reflect on 2007 with a slideshow. It's certainly not a complete version of our year, but instead captures a glimpse of it.
This was quoted by Gordon B. Hinckley,“‘Behold Your Little Ones’,” Ensign, Jun 2001, 2 “When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies”(E. T. Sullivan, quoted in The Treasure Chest, ed. Charles L. Wallis , 53).
