sons

A Quote by Peter Pierre Abélard on country, fatherhood, fulfillment, glory, god, grace, hope, joy, peace, people, praise, prayer, rest, sons, spirit, trouble, vision, and wishes

O what their joy and their glory must be, Those endless sabbaths the blessed ones see! crowns for the valiant, for weary ones rest: God shall be all, and in all ever blest. Truly Jerusalem name we that shore, vision of peace that brings hope evermore; wish and fulfillment shall severed be ne'er, nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. There, where no trouble distraction can bring, we the sweet anthems of Zion shall sing, while for thy grace, Lord, their voices of praise thy blessed people eternally raise. Now, in the meantime, with hearts raised on high, we for that country must yearn and must sigh, seeking Jerusalem, dear native land, through the long exile on Babylon's strand. Low before him with our praises we fall, of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all; of whom, the Father; and in whom, the Son; through whom, the Spirit, with both ever one.

A Quote by Peggy Noonan on children, death, education, giving, love, parenthood, pollution, schools, sons, vengeance, vision, and world

We adults forget what we do to children's imaginations when we go through one of our national seizures on an issue. A dozen years ago, Hollywood fell in love with the environmental issue and put enviro messages in all their shows. The messages made their way into the funnies and magazines, and parents went to school officials and said, "We'd like our children to be better educated on environmental concerns." The schools came through with a vengeance. Now I have a little son who thinks he's going to die from pollution. We do not educate our children; we traumatize them. We are not giving them a vision of a better world; we are giving them nightmares.

A Quote by Oliver Goldsmith on lies, patience, and sons

Embosom'd in the deep where Holland lies. Methinks her patient sons before me stand, Where the broad ocean leans against the land.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on christ, god, impossibility, jesus, sons, and spirit

When one comes to know God and His Son Jesus Christ through the scriptures, the Spirit, and personal revelation, it is impossible to feel anything other than overwhelmed by the attributes so perfectly developed in them and so tentatively and superficially developed in oneself. Even so, we are told to strive to become like them.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on corruption, daughters, divinity, god, love, mercy, power, prophets, salvation, sons, spirit, understanding, vices, and worth

. . . Our God is a God of love. He waits with open arms, and the unfolding of His merciful plan of salvation is not only therefore the mark of divine power but also the mark of God's relentless, redeeming love. It is a point well worth pondering because, among other reasons, it will help us to understand better why God, through the prophets, denounces sin and corruption in such scalding terms. He loves all of us, His spirit sons and daughters, but hates our vices. His denunciation of those vices may, if we are not careful, seem to obscure the enormous and perfect love He has for us.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on accidents, automobiles, consequences, defense, driving, fatherhood, gifts, god, mercy, mortality, pain, parenthood, principles, sons, suffering, teenage, and time

Some mistakenly misread the mercy and graciousness of God. For instance, some partial believers are always scolding God, or disregarding Him, because of the observable and lamentable consequences of our misuse of God's gift to us of moral agency. It is as if a teenage son, given his first car, promptly had an accident with resulting pain, suffering, and expense, and the errant son then railed at his father for permitting the suffering resulting from the son's misuse of the gift of the automobile. Granted, in defense of the analogy, mortal parents ought not to give youngsters automobiles too soon, and then only when they have provided wise counsel, driver training, and so on. But there still comes a time when, if they are ever to drive alone, trained teenagers must be left alone at the wheel. The principle is the same with us in the second estate.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on admiration, body, fashion, fatherhood, protest, sacred, sons, and women

I thank the Father that His Only Begotten Son did not say in defiant protest at Calvary, "My body is my own!" I stand in admiration of women today who resist the "fashion of abortion, by refusing to make the sacred womb a tomb!"
