There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.—1 Corinthians 15:41
We are eternal beings. We have no way of comprehending how long we dwelt in the presence of God as his spirit children. We are here in mortality for a moment of testing and trial. Then we will come forth in the resurrection, receive an inheritance in whatever kingdom we deserve, and go on living the commandments to all eternity. —Spencer W. Kimball
