Dark Blue fades to Clear
Brian convinced me to lean over the tub while he started scrubbing. The next hour was spent watching the dark blue water slowly get lighter and lighter as it ran from my head to the drain. Brian had to scrub pretty hard to get it to this point. I was almost in tears from all the scrubbing and when we were done my head was very sore. In the ENSIGN was the following statement:
When possible, the injured should do what they can to work through their trials, and the Savior will “succor his people according to their infirmities.” 34 He will help us carry our burdens. Some injuries are so hurtful and deep that they cannot be healed without help from a higher power and hope for perfect justice and restitution in the next life. Since the Savior has suffered anything and everything that we could ever feel or experience, 35 He can help the weak to become stronger. He has personally experienced all of it. He understands our pain and will walk with us even in our darkest hours. -- Elder James E. Faust
Others may laugh at us and we may be to proud to admit we need support. Our trials may be as obvious as having blue hair. We may need others to help us scrub and it may really hurt as they do. It may even take quite a while before we are not sore from all the scrubbing but if we get rid of our pride and keep scrubbing eventually we will see the water become clear again.
