We can't waste a precious moment of this life that God has given us to perfect ourselves. We have been given every tool that we could possible need to aid us in this great cause. We have no excuses. We need to repent and change every day. A little bit at a time. We must always be progressing, and always be raising the bar. Now is the time for us to prepare.
I'm still "polar vortex" proof. That doesn't change the fact that I hate the snow. Yes, HATE. It's not pretty, it's not fun, it's not even bearable. It's brown, slushy, cold and dangerous. I don't like any of those words. It sould be illegal. Rant: over.
Yesterday was crazy awesome! I'll credit it to the fact that it was Kamryn's birthday/farewell! So let me back it up...we "randomly" met a woman named Val. She was outside smokin' and drinking coffee when we were on our way in to the appartment complex to stop by one of our investigator's houses. She told us that she was looking for a church in Newark to go to because she's been having a hard time getting to Wilmington every week for church. Of course we were more than willing to solve her dilema! We told her that the next morning we would have a member pick her up for church! And as a bonus, church doesn't even start until ! *thumbs up* She said she'd be ready by ! She even called us the next morning to make sure someone was coming to get her! Now let me explain to you what a heart-attack this was giving us. First of all, she's not even an investigator, second of all we haven't taught her ANYTHING, and third- the school lesson was on the organization of the priesthood. Super awesome. Well, she LOVED it, and found answers to her prayers! She said she'd be back next week. She's coming to a dinner appointment with us at a members home . MIRACLE.
Our Sabbath did not cease to be eventful. THEN when we got home last night... (let me preface this by saying that everytime our heater turns on it sounds like it's going to explode, seriously) we swing open the door of our apartment, exhausted as we have not been home since, and WHOOSH! A nauseating gaseous smell hit us in the face, and the heater was...uh, humming? Needless to say we stayed with members last night, and reported the problem first thing this morning.
Well folks, God lives. He loves each and ever one of us. He wants us to be happy, He wants us to return home to Him. Our time on this earth is so fleeting, yet so important. Please don't take one second of it for granted. Live your life so that you can have the Holy Ghost with you always. Everything good this life has to offer depends on getting and keeping the Holy Ghost with you always. I promise that if you ask for help from our Heavenly Father, he will sustain you. He will do everything in His power to see you through, but you have to be willing.
Onward and upward,
