I saw a quote on Facebook the other day that I really like: Looking behind I am filled with gratitude. Looking forward I am filled with vision. Looking upwards I am filled with strength. Looking within I discover peace.” Q’ero Indians As I pondered this I realized that as I look back over the last 2 years I am so grateful for the experiences Nathan has had and the blessings my family has received. There is so much to look forward to in the next few weeks and months. I have found strength as my faith in a loving Heavenly Father has increased. And as I have thought about what I really believe I have discovered peace. What a blessing it has been to have Nathan serve a mission! Only one more email from my missionary son!
“B… (the guy from last week) somehow found out I go home soon and wants to get baptized before I go home! He asked if I would baptize him so it looks like a picture perfect ending coming up. . . We are kind of teaching this kid and the last time during our lesson there was a knock at his door – it was a girl there to buy marijuana! He told her “I’m doing church – I will come by your place later!” It was pretty funny – he was trying to run a drug deal in the middle of our lesson.”
