LDSCompanion.org Comment
For those of you who don't know, in addition to running ILoveMyJournal.com, I also run an inspirational website called LDSCompanion.org.

Today when I arrived at work, I had an email from someone who had pressed the "contact us" button.

The message I recieved encapsulates the entire reason I created that site, and caused tears to well up, as well as a sense of gratitude for having been given the gift of being technically adept.

Here's the message as it was sent to me: (the name has been removed for privacy)

"My name is (name not published), and I live in a little island in the caribbean by name San Andres. I was baptize the 11 of october of 1997 in Bogota-Colombia; but since april of 2003 when I return home I have loss every direct contact with the church because they are no members here and it has been really hard. Now I have acces to a computer and the opportunity to can read and nurture my spirith throug the motivational stories, inspired poetry, etc of thes web-site. And I know thah our Heavenly Father cares for each a every one of us and bless us, and answer us in misterious ways, thank you for being an instrument in his hands."

Point of the story is, you never know how many people your righteous example might affect.  Do the right, do it always, and unknowingly enlighten everyone around you.

Jas, what a great tribute to your website of inspiration. What would our family do without your expertise knowledge of the computer world?? Isn't it great to share with others the beautiful feeling of the gospel. It always pays off in feelings of gratitude for having the good news in our lives!! Way to go!!
