One more thought...


Just a thought I forgot to put in my letter... We were talking to a man last Saturday about how he doesn't believe in religion or God. At one point he said "Why would a loving God make one of his children come to Earth in a body that they can barely use?" I thought about this for a while, and an answer came to me. This is just a thought - not doctrine :)

People who are mentally or physically handicapped obviously have a hard time on earth making decisions in some way shape or form. But - those people who can't make those choices for themselves are NOT here to be tested. They have proven themselves before they came to this earth. They are among the "noble and great ones" spoken of in Moses. They are here on earth not necessarily to prove themselves, but more importantly to receive their bodies. That's why we came to earth.

Another thought that kind of spliced with another - When Evan was born, the rate of Autism was around 1 in 10000, whereas now it's closer to 1 in 100. Going along with that, the prophets have told of this generation of youth being the greatest of all time. Choice spirits that were saved to come to the earth at this specific time where it would be the hardest because Heavenly Father knew that we could withstand. Do you think it's a coincidence that rates of mental disabilities are spiking at the same time that we have been told that all of the choice spirits are coming to earth? I don't know if that correlates at all.. But to me, it made sense. :)

Okay! love you!
