Tonight we played a game I got for Christmas. "Journey Through Disneyland". You need to travel through Disneyland, discovering and visiting Adventures, earning Fast Passes, and eventually leave before the park closes/the game is over. Some things you can accomplish by yourself; some you can on your own, but it's often easier if you help each other; some things you must help each other to do. Music is part of the game and certain music cues you to certain actions. I am not ready for the full experience, so we only played with the music signalling time to start and time to be out. You need to listen to and recognize the musical messages. You only win if you all make it out on time. The better we work together the easier it is to get out but at the very end, you have to get out pretty much on your own.
A lot like life. Here we are with things to learn and trials to overcome. Some we must do on our own, some we need to help each other. We need to listen to and recognize the promptings of the Spirit. As much as we can and should help each other, at the end it is up to each one of us to make it as individuals by accepting the atonement of Christ and following Him. No one can just drag us through, it has to be our own choice. The ultimate win will be to have a forever family return to Heavenly
Father together and the better we work together the easier it is for
each and all of us.
