What the "bleep"?

I just finished watching the DVD "What the 'Bleep' Do We (K)now!? A very thought provoking couple of hours. I was especially fascinated by the water experiments by Masaru Emoto and the pictures he took of water crystals. I also read a book last year (by an LDS author) about the particle/wave theory of light and how that can help us understand Christ as the Light of the world, and how emotions such as love can be a part of the spectrum of light. And, how we are connected to all things and can indeed be one with God and Christ. I want to reread that book and ponder again on the mysteries of the universe and of our Heavenly Father. I think of the statement of Nephi in 3rd Nephi that the ear hath not heard nor the eye seen nor can it even be written the things which they saw and heard that day when Christ visited the Nephites. This life is a time of learning. A time of gathering knowledge and subjegating the flesh and our will to the perfect plan of Our Father in Heaven. How short I fall daily in that quest. My prayers most often ask for help for Me! Me! Me! but I want to become the daughter who can say "What can I do for You today?". "How can I build Your Kingdom?" I know that I am a stronger and better person than when I started this adult life so many years ago. I do see growth, but I am now reaching an age where the time to change and be productive and of service is shortening. I need to prepare now to make a difference in this world. To be fully fitted with the armor of God and an active participant in His army---not just a whining child tugging at his cloak. When Elder Bednar was called to be an Apostle last fall I really felt that I had fallen short of my potential. He and I are approximately the same age and here he is an Apostle of God and I still feel like that whining child. Well, I am going to go write positive love notes onto my thighs and go to bed (you'll have to watch the movie to understand) Love to all!
