Message from Heaven

At Camp Scabs, Yoga Amber read this quote to us as we were all stretched out in final relaxation:
 

I knew I'd heard it before, but as I listened to it in my relaxed, aware state it became very empowering.  The next Tuesday, I attended Enrichment and the subject was "Who I am is a Gift from God."  Everything discussed went right along with this quote so well that I shared it at the end.  I'm sure the ladies had heard it before, but you can almost never hear it enough.

In church on Sunday, the Relief Society teacher shared this quote.
And then my sponsor, unaware of my seeing this quote and hearing at so many turns, emailed it to me.

I started seeing the quote as less of "ooh, neat" and more of "SOMEone really wants Alicia to hear this."

Two nights ago, I crawled into bed.  I checked facebook one last time before nodding off and found this quote yet again.
One of my husband's old mission companions posted it on his wall.  I read it over again, this time realizing that Heavenly Father REALLY wants me to hear it, listen to it, take it to heart, internalize it.
He's beating me over the head with it because that's what I need before I'll take a hint.
He knows that.

As I read it over, tears of gratitude and love washed over me.
Yet again, I looked Heavenward and spoke from my Heartvoice, "Me?  You have time for Me?"
So humbling.
So touching, rewarding, undeserving, profound and absolutely lovely.

    1. Isn't it so beautiful? I need to print it out and hang it up in five different places in my house.
