View selected quotes from this page in Wilford Woodruff's journal.

Phebe I know you have made sacrafices, & great ones to, you have made them for Jesus Christ & his cause, & you have made them for me: some of them have been of such a nature that it hath required all the powers of the soul to pass through them, & those sacrifces still continue, even our seperation is required for a season in order to do the will of God, but I think you are sensible that no worldly honour or Earthly gain would cause this our seperation No nothing but the commandment of God. Notwithstanding the gate is strait & the way is narrow O! do not shun it, walk in it, yes walk in it for my sake, & seek not death, but livie, yes live for me. Our sorrows, our trials, our sacrafices soon will end, & in that rest that remains for the people of God thou shalt be comforted. Stand by me & maintain thine integrity untill we enter those glories that are to be revealed at the comeing of Christ & thy joy shall be full. O! the glories of a celestial Kingdom I long for thee, for thee I pay my sacrafice. O! kind hearer seal my prayer, grant my request, give me an enterence with my rib my child within thy gates, & glorify our souls with Eternal light & truth & united pow- ers inseperable. Ah Phebe I have had to much of a taste of those Eternal & Almighty truths appertaining to the Celestial Kingdom of God, to let go my grasp I have put my hand to the plough I cannot look back, I must finish my work that My father hath given me to do, & I have confidence to believe that I shall have your assistance unto the End.
~ Wilford Woodruff
Should it be our lot to enjoy a long Eternity together in that society whare tears are wiped from all faces & sorrow & sighing are known no more, we should not regret having passed through trials here in the flesh. All the ancient Saints & Jesus Christ not excepted had their trials to pass through but they are now glorified, & as it is now our turn & we are living in this last dispensat ion & have a great work to do, then should we not act nobly, walk by faith & do our work in patience untill we can say it is finished. We are not alone in this great cause, the Heavens are deeply interested in our welfare, our cause, & our work.
