President Thomas S. Monson shared this poem in one of his talks.
I have wept in the night
For the shortness of sight
That to somebody's need make me blind;
But I never have yet
Felt a tinge of regret
For being a little too kind.
I think I can relate to the teaching in these short lines. I have never regretted being kind.
For preparation day we attempted to bike up to Tatsudayamo Ryo Kuchi park. We passed a very large graveyard on the way. I like the very old grave marker that looked something like a surf board. It still had readable kanji written on it.
The trees were beautiful even though we did not actually get to the park. We hope to be able to find it when we go to the ward picnic later this month.
Scripture of the Week
1 Nephi 10:19
For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round.
