"He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised and we esteemed Him not.

"Surely he has borne our greifs, and carried our sorrows, yet we esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted

"Be He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our pease was upon Him,

and with His stripes we are healed..."

Isaiah 53:3-5

ATP--sometimes you say exactly what I need to hear. I love the subject of these words. There have been many times when he has carried me because I was too tired to continue alone. Thanks, my friend, for reminding me.

Oh...I love you, too.

I think your job in life (right now) is to help me with RS lessons. :) For Sept the 4th sunday lesson is Pres Monson's talk on getting distracted by things, getting attached to them, even talks about addiction a bit (one of my favorite things to talk about). Anyway, I think when we get distracted we feel bad about ourselves, and continue because we feel like we've already screwed up, so why not just continue? The reminder that there is always an opportunity to stop, change course, is a powerful one. Thanks.

That is one of my favorite scriptures, and that picture is amazing. (and so are you.) Thanks for posting it.

Love those verses! Everytime I read them, I can't help but hear the melody from Handel's Messiah in the background...
