Sometimes I think that as we talk about faith sometimes we think that it becomes more complex the more we learn about it, to the point that we lose "faith" in trying to gain it because it becomes something almost abstract. Let us remember faith is like a little seed. For us a seed is something simple, basic in form and color, yet it can grow! The plant itself may appear simple and basic in different stages of life but there is always something more of the inner potential, that shows itself to the world in it's own and proper time. But may it be said by me that all that is required is that it remains a basic principle, one of action, pattern, time, patience, and trust in the Lord. The fruits of our faith are determined by God as well as the inner workings, in this let our Knowledge become sure, That God will and does Work great and mighty miracles through the small, weak, and simple things of this life. I don't understand how the sun rises everyday, but I have a perfect faith that it will. In the small and simple things we can become sure, then when He sees fit, He will enlarge our understanding. Oh the joy that will come as we put this more into practice and act in obedience because of our simple faith that says "if God promised it, I WILL do it, and when I do it I KNOW He will Bless!" I say these things to give glory to my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. I know they Live and They want us to be happy:
Take care until next time,

Sorry.....I thought I had sent my letter last week but found it safely tucked away in the drafts of my emails. Two letters today! I've had a great Birthday week and I have enjoyed the treats!
