Reality, Faith, & Responsibility.

 Claire sent us some photos off her phone 
while we were talking on P-Day yesterday.
They made my heart a little sick. Homesick.
I am homesick for my girls.  I miss them around me, around my life, 
and hearing them walk, talk, and laugh.  
It also made me homesick to see our wonderful life just months ago.  
It's all gone.
Yes, today I'm having a hard day.
Last night in bed, I asked Christian:
"He hears us, right?  He knows the situation we're in, right?"

Christian reminded me of Joseph Smith and all the hardships 
he faced, all the prayers he offered, and all the sacrifices he made.
I am struggling to balance faith, reality, and responsibility.
I wonder and pray frequently about how on earth I will
 fulfill the important responsibilities in my life while maintaining
hope in the Lord's promises.
I find comfort and peace in the Lord's response to Joseph in D&C 82 :10:

 "I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; 
but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise."
