the other day, i snapped this picture as two of the office elders were leaving to proselyte in the afternoon. they love the Savior. they love His work. i love their dedication.
am i doing the things that draw me closer to my Heavenly Father? am i aware of the things i'm doing that hinder that? diane said in her last mission, her mission president used to say to the missionaries, "if you weren't happy in your last area, you're not going to be happy in your next area.". while being happy isn't the issue for me, i don't want to feel the same complacency here that i felt at home. i don't want to waste this opportunity i've been given of trying to devote myself 24 hours a day for 545 days to knowing Him and understanding what He wants from/for me. maybe the way to gauge my progression is to simply try to do the things He asks of me and then ask daily if i'm on the right path and wait upon Him for the answer. i'll keep you posted! love you.
