Well we started out this week with little K___'s 1st birthday! He was super cute and we had a blast teaching and then watching him stuff his face with his first sweet thing (an animal cupcake). on Sunday.
I read the Parable of the Olive Tree's in Jacob 5 and it's interesting that I never really recognized the example God and Christ have set when it comes to hard work. Exodus 20 says that we shall labor 6 days and then rest… and I had to think back, have I truly been laboring? Have I been working? Diligently? Steadfastly? Thankfully we have the Atonement and I know that I'll be striving a lot harder to live up to all that I can become, to never be an idler… and follow Christ's example in working in His Vineyard that all may be well. My time is up, but I know that Christ lives. It's all true, and I'm so glad to be blessed with this work. Oh, by the way I was asked to speak in Zone Conference! It was super fun, I talked on how we can avoid sin and used the candle analogy of daily tasks which build us up that we can burn brightly… because the only way we won't have a shadow is if we are the light. :D It was super fun! I love analogies. :D Anyways I know y'all wanna know more of what L. Tom Perry spoke about so I'll make that my main letter this next week. :D Love you lots!!! Hope all is well with you, y'all are in my prayers. have a blessed week
