My question of concern to you would be:

  What are you doing about your eternity?  Do you remember to walk this life with an eternal perspective?  Is Jesus Christ your living Savior, do you carry his image in your countenance? And have you made our Father in Heaven your best friend and confidante?  If the answer to these questions are "no", I would then ask you to observe your life, and check it.  Remember the love of the Savior and the mercy that He extends to all of His children.  He loves your personally, and knows of your existence, hence, every little thought, and loves you anyway!!  He was willing to bleed and die for our sins, and atone as a sacrifice for us, so we may live our eternity richly and joyously.  Remember that kindness and service, faith, and hope, and forgiveness are some of the keys.  This is the way to live our lives as Alma stated in the Book of Mormon from Alma 7:23:  " And now I would that ye should be humble, and be submissive and gentle, easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive."   And from 2 Nephi 31:20:  "Wherefore, ye most press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men.  Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ and endure to the end, behold, this saith the Father:  Ye shall have eternal life."  This is a promise from the Almighty Maker of Heaven and Earth, the Originator of Creation, the powerful, and omnipotent, Heavenly Father, whose heart oozes with tender mercy, love, and forgiveness for all of our sins.   Please remember He is always there, along with our Savior, to help us and guide us.  If you haven't found the Book of Mormon yet, I urge you to do so, and the Lord will awaken you out of a deep sleep, and you will awake unto God.   I humbly ask you to try it, and you will find more love than you have ever known.  I also ask you to review 'General Conference", which was on October 1st and 2nd.  You will find messages of hope and lovingkindness, and joy and encouragement.  I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
