The Greatest Force

My friend and neighbor Jessica put this on her blog and it really touched me so I thought I would post it too. :) It was quoted by President Hinckley. :)
"When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn't stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother's heart, and she puts it into the baby's mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies." E.T. Sullivan
I can't wait until I have a little force that comes into the world and will change it for the better!
