So this last week was a fairly good week. We were able to help progress Christian, our neighbor a little more; he has a date for the 28th of this month. So that was good. The unfortunate part of the week was that Brandon has decided that he does not want to be baptized. He feels bad for having deceived us, and he wants to be baptized at some point, but right now he really does not want to be. I am not really sure what more we could have done. You never know, when people make that decision it makes you think maybe there was something else that you could have done. I guess agency is one of the biggest gifts that we have. We will keep teaching him and hopefully he will come around to the idea. But overall the week was a good one. Mariela was confirmed Sunday!
Buddy! That is so weird how dogs will just decide to go on a walk someday. They just walk and walk then have no idea where they are. It is really nice that that person put something on Facebook, and did not think, “sweet, free dog”. I’m really glad that he is home and everything is ok.
I believe it when you say that the shop is easier to work in now then before. It looks awesome! with all of the new changes that you have made. I hope that the place with the CNC machine is not a rip off and that they just charge a reasonable price.
I never like when anyone is sick, but especially mom. She will be trying to do stuff before she should so make sure to not let her do too much. I hope you get better quickly mom.
I was watching a Mormon message this last week, and the main idea was the importance of memorizing scriptures. The idea was that every time we memorize a scripture is like adding one more friend to your cabinet. I decided that I should start memorizing! J the first one I am memorizing is D&C 6:34-36. That says, “Therefore fear not little flock, do good, let earth and hell combine against you for if ye are built upon my rock they cannot prevail. Behold I do not condemn you, go your ways and sin no more, perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you. Look unto me in every thought, doubt not, fear not.” SWEET!!! We need to build a strong foundation on the rock of the Lord. Some of the cornerstones of this foundation are a testimony of the Book of Mormon, Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, and I believe, having knowledge of the love that God has for every one of us. Because when we better understand the love that God has, we have more motivation to do those things that we need to do. Building a foundation is a lifelong process that cannot stop.
Sounds like things are going well there, and that this week should be a good one, family activities and home projects never stop! I love you all so much; I hope that everything is going well there.
