Movin' on Up

You know those moments when you see something and just think "huh?"  Yes, my companion and I had such a moment yesterday.  Take a look.
This poor teddy bear was either trying to hide, hungry (like most bears are), sick, or someone was getting rid of him.  As my parents can attest, I loved stuffed animals as a kid.  They were better than anything else in the world!  Each one would have to travel with me from my bed to the couch each day.  Seeing this poor bear made the child inside me want to cry.  So why would someone get rid of the bear?

Yes, I have my theories.  One such theory, that I think is the winning theory (in my mind), is that the child has a better toy now.  Clearly this bear was taking up too much room and there was something even better that the child wanted more.  Something good, the bear, for something better.  And one day, that better item may be traded in for something that is best.

Elder Dallin H. Oaks said "We have to forego some good things in order to choose others that are better or best because they develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strengthen our families."  We all may need to move up in life from good to best.  Why settle for good or alright when you can have best or supreme?!?!  Dump the old bear and make room for something amazing!

Sometimes when we think we have it good, the Lord can't make it better! It is so true, we must be ready to give up things we like, for something better!

I still feel bad for that bear...

It's like Toy Story!...

Sad poor teddy bear, it had such a long life ahead of him or her.

I totally agree with Elder Williams. All I could think of was Toy Story. Kind of sad, yet, we gotta move on to bigger and better things!
