wow, that was beautiful and very powerful. thanks for the food for thought and study . . .
I commented on that one, "I think, though, that Jesus did look for an out. He asked that this pain be taken from Him and that He not have to endure the atonement. In this moment He was more human perhaps than ever before and for this I love Him all the more. He showed us that it is okay to be really scared and to not want to go through our trials. He was also, however, was willing to completely submit to His Father’s will. And from that, I think, is where His greatest example to us comes. Does that make sense?"
This is a very powerful piece. I've always thought that childbirth and death of a loved one is the closest peek we can have into what the Savior suffered for us.
