Yes I Know Heavenly Father Loves Me!!
How are you all doing?? I hope that this last week has treated you well and this letter finds you all doing well. I hear its getting toasty in St George...well all I got to say is that I fell ya. Its getting pretty hot here too! I think the rainy season is coming to an end and the heat is coming! WOOHOOO!!! I have to keep saying woohoo in my mind or I think I´m gonna cry, but we´re good and positive!!! I´m doing great and I´m getting my nice summer tan on!!!
Well this week has been full of little blessings! So many little ones that it turned into a great big blessing by Sunday! The scripture that says by small and simple things are great things brought to pass has never rung truer. This whole week I have felt the spirit guiding and directing me, helping us find success. We have a baptism date, 3 progressing investigators and 7 new investigators, which are awesome for this area. And I am so stoked to work this week!! I´m praying I don´t have transfers because there is so much work to be done here that I still haven´t done!!!
The small and simple statement has been a model for me throughout the week. I have been trying to look for the small and simple blessings throughout the day and the small promptings I get from the spirit to help us find success. I can testify to you that if you look for small and simple blessings each and everyday you will find so many that you never even realized you had. One day was especially hard and the only thing I could find was a beautiful butterfly that flew around me for a few seconds(shout out to Cami Dietz for helping me find my butterflies), but in that moment the primary song Heavenly Father loves me came into my mind:
He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him rev'rently
For all his creations, of which I'm a part.
Yes, I know Heav'nly Father loves me.
After that song came to my mind, I felt Gods love and I knew he loved me. Everyday I feel his love and his love for others. I am so thankful that I am part of his creation and that I get to enjoy and help others along the way!
So I invite you all to look for the small and simple blessings which come each and everyday and it will make everything so much easier!
I love you all and pray for you each and everyday! Stay strong and keep the faith!! And remember the love of you Father in Heaven is the most powerful as you celebrate Valentines Day this week!!
