This week was honestly wild. Busy every moment of every day running from appointment to appointment. But, it was amazing! Being in a trio is so fun we just laugh.. all the time. It's been so great! I also get the experience to learn from two amazing missionaries. Sister Whetman and Scott are both just incredible people all around. So, spending time with them is a blessing!
Some highlights of the week:
-One of the members of the ward threw Judy a baby shower, so that was amazing to see everyone get together to support her!
-Celebrated Shotgun's 78th birthday.
-Went to nine hours of church on a fast Sunday and survived.
-Sister Scott sleep teaches lessons and it is amazing hahaha.
This week I've taken it back to the small and simple things..
-I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that He has a divine plan.
-I love Jesus Christ. I know that He died for us, but that He lives. Because of this, I know that we too, will live!
-I know that the Holy Ghost is the ultimate comforter and can be with us at all times and in all things and in all places.
These three eternal truths have been the biggest blessing this week.
I love and appreciate going back to the basic principles and truths of the gospel. They bring me so much happiness and comfort.
I invite you to pray and ponder what basic truth you are lacking to know in your heart... And ask God!
I hope you are able to receive special answers as I have.
I feel like I have learned more about myself and my Savior this week than I have my whole entire life. I've come to the realization that God truly doesn't give us challenges that we cannot handle. It is not possible! Because of Christ we can over come any hardship. He turns it into comfort. He turns it into joy. He turns it into peace.
The words of my favorite hymn say it much better than I ever could.
Where can I turn for peace?
Where is my solace
When other sources cease to make me whole?
When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice, I draw myself apart, searching my soul?
Where, when my aching grows,
Where, when I languish,
Where, in my need to know, where can I run?
Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish?
Who, who can understand?
He, only One.
He answers privately,
Reaches my reaching
In my Gethsemane, Savior and Friend.
Gentle the peace he finds for my beseeching.
Constant he is and kind,
Love without end.
Thank you for all of the support, love, and prayers!! I feel them each day. I love you all!
