Both Ends Of The Stick

When you pick up one end of a stick, the other end always comes with it. This phrase has been going through my mind constantly the last few days. I believe it is something that Brigham Young said, and it means: we are free to choose anything, but we are not free to choose the consequences of our choices. I also think of the scripture in D&C 130:20, 21 which states: "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated . . . And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated."

Thank heavens for the atonement. I love our Savior for his sacrifice on our behalf. Only He can unravel the complexities of our life! And for that, and for Him I am so grateful!
