God has known you individually . . . for a long, long time (see D&C 93:23). He has loved you for a long, long time. He not only knows the names of all the stars (see Psalm 147:4; Isaiah 40:26); He knows your names and all your heartaches and your joys! By the way, you have never seen an immortal star; they finally expire. But seated by you tonight are immortal individuals--imperfect but who are, nevertheless, 'trying to be like Jesus' - Elder Neal A. Maxwell -
Wow! Talk about a boost of confidence and empathy for my week. Hope this is uplifting to some of you. I miss Elder Maxwell.
