Week 50: A week of learning and cleansing (Spiritually and Physically)

Well this week has been a rough week, because we had a baptism planned for Wednesday but she backed out Tuesday night for her interview and hasn't even wanted to talk to us recently. But we will talk to her this week to try to get her excited again for her baptism!

But first things first, PICTURES! Well, yesterday was ST. PATRICK'S DAY! And so I had a green pen! And we ate green pistachio jello with Sister Madsen! Also we got to cleaning the house today and did a deep clean and found a tie.... There is a picture of it. It literally is growing. I ALMOST put it on to wear it to get a picture like that but I didn't want to stain my shirt XD

But going back to the week, well it has been pretty hard with a lot of stuff that has been happening which has not been normal, with baptisms that got cancelled, visas not working out, lots of things but my aunt Celeste sent me something this morning that really made me think. She said, "Life is what happens when you're making other plans. Make the best of it anyway!" Whatever happens in our lives, we must always make the best out of it! Because we came into this world knowing it would not be easy. But we knew that if we are faithful and doing what we can, it will be mu

ch more than worth it!

This week I have recognized that sometimes when things go wrong we need to not look outward, but look inward and spiritually cleanse ourselves. If we are not in the place that we want to be we need to first be doing everything God wants us to do. Then we can wait for the miracle to occur. And sometimes we need to change what we want so that it matches what He wants.

I know that through the small and simple things we do we will be able to make it to eternal life, and if we keep up on the small and simple things, it doesn't matter how many huge things come, we will be ok in the end. And so I would like y'all to remember that Jesus Christ is always there to help us when we call on his with a broken heart and a contrite spirit.

Have a great week!
