Mindy Gledhill wrote and sang an amazing song called "Child of Light." The words are a call to each of us as His special disciples in these last days preparatory to His second coming. We are carrying the torch that was passed on to us, lit over a century ago as an ensign to the world of light and truth. The banner was stitched by our pioneer ancestors as a symbol of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Let us all hold the banner high!!!
One of our greatest heartbreaks comes from the loss of a child - either to physical death or spiritual death. Pertaining to the later, a prophet declared for children of the covenant, "... Though some of the sheep may wander, the eye of the Shepherd is upon them, and sooner or later they will feel the tentacles of Divine Providence reaching out after them and drawing them back to the fold. Either in this life or the life to come, they will return. They will have to pay their debt to justice; they will suffer for their sins; and may tread a thorny path; but if it leads them at last, like the penitent Prodigal, to a loving and forgiving father's heart and home, the painful experience will not have been in vain. Pray for your careless and disobedient children; hold on to them with your faith. Hope on, trust on, till you see the salvation of God."
