My spiritual cup is overflowing with goodness after this week! We had both Zone Conference and Stake Conference this week. I absoutley love President Passey and Sister Passey. They are incredible and I will be so sad to see them leave in July. The whole Tucson Valley is filled with the most unique spirit, and buzz as the temple open house is around the corner. I am SO lucky to be apart of this special time in the Lords work.
and.... we found out at Zone Conference all the sister missionaries near the temple get to work the open house EVERYDAY!!! I am praying I get to be one of those lucky missionaries as transfers are next week, fingers crossed!!!
"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together" -Vincent Van Gogh
Simplicity. Many times this last week at both conferences we were told to simplify. Its so easy to fill our lives with things that are good, but is that the best thing we could be doing? Elder Dallin H Oaks said, "We have to forego some good things in order to choose others that are better or best because they develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strengthen our families."
There's not enough time to do just the good things, we must do the best things. And by doing small things that are best we will see great things happen in our lives!
Love you all so much!!
