Not many things hit the spot like brinner does.  I know that's not the most common word, so I'll give a quick explanation.  Breakfast for dinner equals brinner.  It is one of the greatest inventions out there.  The other day, I was able to have brunch (not quite as good as brinner, but close) with a family that I knew in a past area.  Not only was it great to see them, but it was great to talk about that area again.  Reminiscing about the good old times.  It made me remember all the good things that have happened on my mission and how we should all constantly remember those tender mercies of the Lord.

Remembering is one of the crucial parts of staying on the strait and narrow.  Even when things seem illogical and impractical, certain memories can prove otherwise.  For example, having a breakfast smorgasbord isn't the most typical thing to eat for dinner, but if we remember how tasty it was, then we can use that thought to have a most delicious meal that will fully satisfy us.  Though it seems out of place, not many things are better.

Helaman counseled his sons, Nephi and Lehi, about the principle of remembrance.  His sons were named after great men who were highly favored of God and Helaman exhorted his sons "that when you remember your names, ye may remember [those great men]; and when ye remember them ye may remember their works; and when ye remember their works ye may know...that they were good."  (Hel. 5: 6).  But more importantly to "remember that it is upon...Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation."  (Hel. 5:12).  May we all remember, receive, and rely on the "rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ," the one true way back to heaven.
