If we do our part He WILL do his.
I have always been proud to call myself LDS, but never in my life have I been so proud than I was last night when I heard that Proposition 8 Passed in California, and not just because it did pass. I was proud that, without hesitation, the LDS church and most of it's members, even outside of California, put themselves to work. We stood for a believe regardless of how popular or unpopular it is. Exhausting every effort, knocking doors, giving speeches, donating money (PS was the most money EVER spent on campaigning for a proposition), calling people, sign holding (???), sign posting, fasting, we really rose to the occasion. We stood up and fought for the single most important thing in America, the family, and what rightful meaning should be attributed to a marriage. We filled our part of the bargain, we answered the call, we did as much as anyone could do, we exhibited faith and perseverance, and God answered our prayers, his grace made up for the rest. There truly is a God, there truly is a prophet on this earth today, there truly are miracles that happen everyday, and there is still so much goodness left in this world worth fighting for. Thank you everyone who answered the call.
