Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great week this week! :) With less sun and heat than us. Wow this week I got a free sauna and tanning pass.Well, this week was a pretty good week! There is always something new to learn and this week was not an exception!
I had the opportunity to give a talk in sacrament meeting yesterday, I say opportunity now but at the moment it didn't feel like an opportunity haha. But as I prayed for help and guidance, I was able to learn something new and hopefully others as well. I focused on the commandments, especially on the first commandment and fourth. To not have other Gods in front of Him, and to keep the sabbath day holy.
As we have been visiting members, less active members and investigators, almost all of them have told us how all they want is to be happy. They want to be happy, and they want blessings from the Lord. I feel that the following quote from President Monson answers this plea:
"My message to you is straightforward. It is this: keep the commandments.
God’s commandments are not given to frustrate us or to become obstacles to our happiness. Just the opposite is true. He who created us and who loves us perfectly knows just how we need to live our lives in order to obtain the greatest happiness possible. He has provided us with guidelines which, if we follow them, will see us safely through this often treacherous mortal journey. We remember the words of the familiar hymn: “Keep the commandments! In this there is safety; in this there is peace.”1"
I know that the Lord loves us, and I know He saw the sacrifice of this young sister and her daughters and I can only imagine the joy He felt to see her devotion and love, and the joy He feels to see the sacrifice and Love of every single one of us, its the little things that make all the difference.
I hope you all have a great week! Thank you for your examples to me, for your love and support! Have a great week!!
With lots of love,
