Hello everyone! This week has been really great! You might ask why, but I’m not even completely sure why! But I will try to tell you about the things that made it joyful^^
This week I received a letter from my lovely mother ^^ She included a news clipping about the differences between fun and joy. Then in District meeting, the topic was happiness in the work. He kept using the word “fun”. I really wanted to clarify, but it might have detracted from the spirit, so I left it alone. But I knew in my heart that “fun” as defined in the article is a moment of pleasure, a moment of fleeting joy. But happiness is a sustained feeling of satisfaction in the work you are doing. A continued feeling of peace and true joy in the NOW.
I stand by that truth, and I add to it, the words of ‘Be happy now. Enjoy the blessings that God has given you.” And my all time favourite scripture, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart” Because if you trust in Him, you will know that all He does is for a reason. AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY!
So maybe not a miracle week, but everything is a miracle in missionary work ^^ I think it was just a good week because I enjoyed my studies more…?? haha yep! I also got some WARM tights from a member! I’m really feelin the love lately! Our members are so awesome!!! And many people came out to our Halloween party! YAY! Okay well have a good week! I love you all! KEEP reading the scriptures! Mark them up and then get a new set! hahaha
