Hi all! Just wanted to share a card and a sweet experience. The card is one I made for the GCD Studios DT call and reflects the feelings of my heart..."sweet". We took our son to the Missionary Training Center yesterday. Although, I thought my heart was going to break at leaving him for the next two years, still it is the sweetest of all experiences to see your children choosing a path you know will bring them the greatest of all joy. To be able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, will bring him joy greater than he has ever known and I am so happy for him. The Lord showed us all such a tender mercy when we arrived. As we are pulling into the parking lot, crossing the parking lot is one of his very best buddies from home. There are THOUSANDS of missionaries here and for his friend to be crossing the parking lot at the EXACT time of our arrival was our own little miracle. Thought I would share a few pictures of this sweet experience.
“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
