We Weren't Talking About Friends But We Could Have Been
Finding jewels in the ground isn't so different than finding friends. Some people just match up to us right away and become a best friend. Other times finding a friend is like looking for treasure buried in the earth. The jewel goes first to the polisher...
Then there is lots of hard work on metal which is what holds the jewel or friendship together. In the center of this work table is a cluster of tiny blue moon stones. Each will be set in silver to become a ring.
After hard work you find that instead of no rings, or we could say no friends, that you have a dozen new friends all perfect as you would want a friend to be. (This is for you Hawaii granddaughter. Or for anyone else looking for a golden friend.)
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
