Heavenly Father said, " And we will prove [these children] herewith, to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them;" (Abraham 3:25)

I am grateful that I chose to be obedient to the Lord. I chose the right before I was born, and I will choose the right again today.
