  • Faith is always a gift of God to man, which is obtained by obedience, as all other blessings are. (Joseph F. Smith Gospel Doctrine, p. 212) ... Faith does not come without works; faith does not come without obedience to the commandments of God. (Conference Report, October 1903, p. 4)

LIKE A SON TWICE

I have 3 sons.

I also have 3 daughters.
They each married a young man that is 'like a son' to me.

TWO of 'these' sons have birthdays this month -
both within a week's time.

In spring the days warm, begin to lengthen,
and the light steadily increases.

All my sons bring light and humour  to our family, increase the vitality, and strengthen joy with thoughtful gestures and kind actions.

Does this sound a bit familiar? 
It should - I said something like it a month ago.
Repetition of good things is a good thing! 

Happy Birthday may also seem a bit repetitious or trite but ...
why change a good thing?

So ...

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY boys ... 

 I pray for your happiness, not only on the day the calendar marks, for you, the passing of another year - your birth day, but all other days too.
