Things here never cease to be anything less than amazing! We had stake conference over the weekend. The adult session on saturday was great. We had 2 different investigators there and they both really enjoyed it. It's great to have a meeting so focused on moving forward the work of salvation. Sunday was great with all the talks focused on overcoming trials and relying on the Lord. The spirit filled the room from the opening hymn to the closing prayer, and to top it all off I was able to see so many of my families from my first area of Manchester. Man it made me miss them and feel like a brand new missionary again. It was so great to see all of them right before coming home. This last week has been filled with tender mercies, and I already know this week will be filled with them as well. There are so many little things that the Lord blesses us with which sometimes we look over completely. It's when we take the time to see those little things that changes our whole perspective and helps us to live a happier more abundant life. Perspective is everything! Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right! It's having the fear or the doubt and taking the step anyway that changes it all. It's not until after we take that step into the darkness that we find out that there is solid ground awaiting us. It's not until we seek the light that we find pure joy. Look for those moments. Look for those little blessing and then be thankful.
