  1. Dear Perfect Day,

    I so very much enjoy the words, expressions, encouragements, brotherly love and kindness shared by you and your readers.

    What I need is added guidance through my transitional stage. May I be bold and forthright? (I feel I can as that I am posting this anonymously). I have had my calling and election made sure. I have received the second comforter. At least in the early stages as that I have felt the personal presence of the Lord. He came to me at a time of deep tearful and heartfelt distress. Later, after I calmed down and wiped away my tears, I realized that it was the Lord, I can "kick myself" figuratively, thinking that if only I had asked Him to reveal Himself. I rejoice that I felt his comforting spirit and love. I continue to pray in faith. I am careful to pray by the power of the Holy Ghost so that I do not petition unrighteously. I believe with all my heart that Heavenly Father hears my prayers. I have felt his deep love and confirming spirit.

    I have spoken with angels and they have spoken to me. I have seen angels and they have minister to me. I hear the Lord's voice whisper to me and to my soul. How am I doing? What else should I be doing to have the veil parted and my eyes opened? What I have not yet had the privileged of is seeing the Lord?

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Your humble brother and fellow servant

    1. If you've had your C&E, commune with angels and clearly converse with the Lord, then the last thing you need is advice from a most imperfect mortal like me. You can do what many, many people can't, don't or won't do -- commune with God as one person converses with another! Keep listening to Him. Keep doing what He invites you to do. There's no better test than to plop us in the middle of nowhere and see who we'll follow (1 Nephi 8: 4-10). May the Lord's choicest blessings be with you as you continue to enjoy -- and share -- the exhilarating, glowing, white fruit.
