Week 70: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Week 70: These are a Few of my Favorite things!

¡Familia y Amigos!

This week has been a crazy one full of MANY tender mercies! I am humbled every week by his love and strength!

So... WE FOUND 3 NEW PEOPLE TO TEACH THIS WEEK!!! It has been so long!! But it is incredible to see the unfolding of the miracles the Lord has here in the Red Bridge ward! I feel so blessed to see the change that has happened!

We were also on walk week and so we got to talk to lots and lots of people!! Always a good time Testifying of Jesus Christ! :)

We went to the Historic Liberty Jail (Yes, still love that place with all my heart) AND the Kansas City Missouri Temple with the member we have been working with! We got to the temple just as the sun was setting and it was BEAUTIFUL. I love the temple more that any other place on earth!! The last 30 minutes we were there all we did was look up at the temple- none of us wanted to leave! But after our trip she ended up coming to church with us!! Highlight of the week!

So we had fast and testimony meeting yesterday and a dear sister stood up and said something that really put all my thoughts into words from this last week.

"Sometimes we expect the miracles that God gives us to be perfect, wrapped with a silver bow and a sign that says 'here's your miracle!' But God's miracles come to us in ways and time that we need them, we just have to look"

So i was thinking this week about the tender mercies of the Lord and at one point Julie Andrews came to my head as I reflected on some of the things the Lord blessed us with this week.

So weather or not your favorite things are the miracles the Lord gives you, or they are simply a stranger who stops to listen, the Lord has many miracles going on in your life.

"6 Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.

7 And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls." - Alma 37:6-7

So this week look for the small and simple things. When we are humble and acknowledge our blessings, I know our eyes and understanding to the Lord's will are opened.

Love you all and hope you have a week full of miracles!
