Pretty good week, but nothing much super went on. I did finally learn how to spell Wednesday- after 20 years of trying- I hate having a phone that doesn’t have auto-correct and won’t take misspelled words. I have had to learn how to actually spell.
We did a lot of finding this week. And a few lessons and some follow ups. We shared the Plan of Salvation with one this week. A new concept and a little confused about it until we went into 1 Corinthians where Paul says they were caught up to the third heaven. We explained this is the three degrees of glory. That made sense. Another is reading the Book of Mormon, has prayed about it and feels good about it! So we are pretty excited about that!
Had a discussion with another about trying to get answers to questions that we already know. God is not necessarily going to give us “another” answer to the question, when His teachings clearly have answered the question in the first place.
We must to willing to obey the commandments God has in place for us. If we do not, we might loss the happiness in this life- because that happiness comes from doing what God wants you to do. If we put God first, things will work out. We are here on earth to prepare to meet God. Anything else that we do besides that is extra. But we still need to put God first, or else we are not fulfilling our purpose on earth.
There is a drunk we see occasionally. He plays a song on his guitar, most always the same song. It goes “I smoke too much, I drink too much, and I don’t sleep at night. I eat too much, I talk too much, and I don’t sleep at night.”
It has been raining a lot here. Always! I think it rains about 5-6 times a week this time of year. I hear that New York is covered in snow- it’s big news here. Everyone talks to us about it!
Also got to teach the Gospel Principles class again this week at church.
Been studying a lot about agency this week and different types of agency. Moral agency is the ability to choose between good and evil, when you know what good and evil are. Agency is just choosing something without having the ability to know good and evil.
Thanks everyone for everything! Hope you have a Great Thanksgiving!
