"No matter the burdens we face in life
as a consequence of natural conditions,
the misconduct of others,
or our own mistakes and shortcomings,
we are all
children of a loving Heavenly Father,
who sent us to earth as part of His eternal plan
for our
growth and progress.
Our unique individual experiences can help us
prepare to return to Him.
The adversity and afflictions that are ours,
however difficult to bear,
last, from heaven's perspective, for
'but a small moment;
and then, if [we] endure it well, God shall exalt [us] on high.'
We must do everything we can to
bear our burdens "well" for however long 'small moment' carrying them lasts."

--L. Whitney Clayton, "That Your Burdnes May Be Light," Ensign, Nov. 2009, 13.
