What would we do without written record?

What would we do without written records?
.
I know for me, I enjoy writing, and it is a way to ease my mind. We all have something to take the stress away for some time, and writing is one of those for me.
.
I give thanks to those who write and who document, especially our ancestors. I give thanks to our prophets & apostles in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I am grateful for Joseph Smith and his time spent writing down revelation from God.
.
Because we can write, we can “give thanks” and fulfill the prophet’s prescribed medicine to heal social media for seven days. It’s working from my end; how about your feed?
.
It’s been great to read what everyone is thankful for and see the negativity disperse. We are again lighting the darkness! So, keep it up!
.
Where would we be today if we didn’t have the written word?
.
How would we know of the past without journals?
.
Who would teach us about Jesus Christ if it wasn’t documented by oral transmission or as Job declared.
.
“Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!” Job 19:23-24.
.
“From latter-day revelation we learn that writing sacred records and the recording of genealogy began with Adam and his immediate family. Adam and the early patriarchs had a perfect language that was both spoken and written.” Bible Dictionary.
.
“And a ​​​book​ of ​​​remembrance​ was kept, in the which was recorded, in the ​​​language​ of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of ​​​inspiration​.” Moses 6:5.
.
So today, I give thanks to the ability to write and document my thoughts. I give thanks to those who have inspired me and have allowed me an opportunity to learn of Jesus Christ and His restored Gospel.
.
Read the writings of those who testified and testify of Jesus Christ. They have allowed us to Hear Him!
