Thank you, Mr. Gardener

When I was a kid my dad would let me sit on the top of the couch and brush his hair. My dad has always had a great head of hair and I remember loving to brush my very manly fathers hair.

I was overcome with the love my Heavenly Father has for me and everyone around me. When you get to see the world in a new perspective, let's say from the top of a mountain, it's hard to question the reality of God's infinite love. Jesus Christ lives. He created this beautiful earth so we could live, grow, and experience things. Saturday my car window decided it didn't want to roll back up. I tried and tried to push it up but it wasn't budging. Today I took it to get it fixed. They told me it was going to cost over $200. $200 is a lot of money for a college student. I was stressed…
