Trials of Faith

In 2 Nephi we learn from Lehi to Jacob that we could not know what it means to be happy if we could not know what it means to be sad. Before Nephi or anyone can be highly favored of the Lord they must first be subjected to trials of faith. Even Jesus Christ’s faith was tried in the Garden. One must continue to endure the trial or the test of faith with out giving up until the trial is over. (2 Nephi 2:2) Because the trials that our Heavenly Father places before us can be so difficult at times we are constantly on our knees in prayer to Heavenly Father asking him for guidance through the trial. (D&C 90:24) Once we have endured to the end of the trial we have an increase of faith and a greater understanding of GOD and his infinite love and mercy for all of his children, and a better understanding of the plan of happiness. (D&C 122:7-8) Once we have been found faithful from our trials then we can truly be highly favored of the Lord and better able to fulfill all that he has in store for us to do. In closing with out the trials that are placed on us we could not fully understand what it means to be happy until we persist to the end of the trial.

Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time.

Valiant Watercolor Professional Quality Pen Set 20 Color Soft Flexible Tip. Perfect for Children's Coloring Books Manga Caligraphy Lettering. 100% Non-Toxic and Safe.

One of the things that I love to do aside from my photography is a watercolor painting. I love how watercolor gives life to a simple image. Here is an example of an image that I painted. A watermelon. I painted this image using a watercolor brush pen. This pen has a flexible nylon brush tip which makes it possible to create fine, medium, and bold strokes. How I achieved the fading color in my watercolor paint? I used a refillable blending brush pen that comes with the watercolor brush pens that I used. I get so excited when I see the watercolor effect of these pens. They are so easy to use.  

And when I need to unwind from my day to day activities. I will sit for a few minutes and enjoy the color of these watercolor brush pens using a coloring book that has beautiful and inspirational quotes.
