If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.

Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.
I consider this belief in God's infinite power
and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
