Remember that one time I wanted my hair trimmed and decided to do it myself over the sink but the problem was I was like three years old so it didn't turn out so great? Yeah well apparently at twenty-three years old, it still doesn't turn out so great because I'm not a professional. The good news is, if I flip em back in a poof and hairspray it, you can't even tell my bangs just got chopped up.I made notes on a hundred things to tell ya'll about but now not one of them sounds as exciting as it did when it happened. I'll tell ya anyway.
We visited the nonmember husband we'd got to quit smoking last week, and in place of his evening glass of tea was a glass of blue powerade. Word of wisdom! It stuck! He even quit the coffee too. Plays it off like he could go back to it whenever he chooses, but we know he's smarter than that. We taught him and his wife the Restoration last night and his wife bore testimony over and over of the blessings of the gospel, and he even admitted that we Latter day Saints all seem to be at ease with ourselves and have this radiance about us. "You can have that too," Sister M pointed out. I then proceeded to open my mouth and have it filled, like the scriptures promise, with things so wise and coherent I know they couldn't have come from my own brain. That was the Spirit speaking. Telling him that he too could have a testimony of the gospel that he's already familiar with if he simply applies it and lives it, just as he did with the stop smoking program. The information is there. We know it will bless your life. But you won't know until you try it. "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." I don't know if I'll ever see the end of his story, but he's one of those I feel like I came to Slidell for. Because being up-front with him as been easy as cake since my first week here.
26 And I saw that I must soon go down to my grave, having been wrought upon by the power of God that I must preach and prophesy unto this people, and declare the word according to the truth which is in Christ. And I have declared it in all my days, and have rejoiced in it above that of the world. [Enos 1]
There's no greater joy in the world than knowing that you're exactly where Heavenly Father wants you to be, doing exactly what He needs you to do. Love you all.
