Doctrine and Covenants 42:61

"If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things--that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal."
Doctrine and Covenants 42:61

This makes me think of a little girl going to her dad and saying, "dad... why is the sky blue?"  Except, this dad really knows. :)  I think that it is so remarkable that we have a father who knows everything, and so when we go to him with any question, no matter how seemingly outlandish... he knows the answer.  And just like the little girl, who believes that her father knows everything... we can believe that of our heavenly father... who really does. :)  Even the "why me?" or "why is this happening?" questions he can answer for us... if we truly want to know. :)  Our Father is doing everything he can to help us to be happy, to help us to grow, to become strong and valiant children, ready to help and protect our brothers and sisters... ready to grow up into the stunning potential that our heavenly parents have given us.  I also think that it is great that he hints at what to ask for... letting us know that there is so much peace out there that we haven't found yet... so many things that bring joy, and that guide us into eternity... so many amazing things to ask for, there is no reason to get caught up in things that harm our souls.  So, today... Let's ask.  Let's be open to revelations... and drink in the knowledge.  Let's be aware of the peaceable things and the things that bring joy.
