Mosiah 2:17 And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God. - TheBook of Mormon
This is my favorite passage of scripture, it speaks to the very heart of me. It is hope. It is truth. It is what I do. It is the gift I give to my mom as she travels the last few steps from this life to the next.
It doesn't make it any easier though.
