Elder Huffstatler and me making eggrolls.
I think the most beautiful thing God created was the stars. We don't see the stars much here. Smog, fog and rain. but when we do they are beautiful. We can look at the stars and realize how small and insignificant we are, and at the same time remember the glory of God, to give us the stars. Why would we ever aim for anything shorter than the farthest star? Satan can promise you anything on this Earth, but Heavenly Father has promised us the stars if we only follow him. Why would we settle for anything on this Earth, any amount of temporary happiness, when we could simply look to the stars and know the condescension of God? Look to the stars, and think of the Work, the Will, and the Prize. It's as simple as following Jesus Christ's example. Let us all think "the Stars my Destination."
