Some of you know that my daughter is currently serving as a missionary for our church in Paraguay. All of our family prays for her and it really touched my heart and definitely tickled me when my oldest daughter posted the following on her blog today. It is the prayer my little grandson offered last night: Tyler's Prayer: Dear Heabenly Father, thankful for this day, thankful for our blessings, thank you for our home, thank you for the store...but mommy says no we can't go today, thankful for President Monson, thank you for Nephi and Sam, bless the scriptures, bless our blessings, bless the couch, starts to mumble off, [please bless amanda]-that's me trying to redirect the prayer-,with her mission in pigsaway (Paraguay), thank you for inbestugators (her investigators). In the name of Jesus Christ, amen
Sorry to steal your post Angela, but to me, this was too cute not to share. I also thought I would post the pictures she sent to us last week. These are the first pictures we've gotten from her. When we talked to her on Christmas she said all the sister missionaries she knows there had been robbed for their cameras. Yikes! I told her we were just fine without pictures! It was a treat to get these, though.
**Just as an aside...if you haven't checked out Kazan's sketch this week at 2S4Y, you need to...FABULOUS! I'm definitely going to be playing along. And congrats to the new DT members!!! Woohoo!! A big hug and shout out to my sweet blogging friend Kay Sibley who is now a part of the team!! I'm so excited for her and all the new DT! Congrats!
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
