So, I don't have much time but this week has been an amazing week full of so many miracles and opportunities to learn and become more like our Savior.
This past week Sister Orton and I have been ponderizing a verse in the Book of Mormon. It is Alma 37:45 and it reads
"And now I say, is there not a type in this thing? For just as surely as this director did bring our fathers, by following its course, to the promised land, shall the words of Christ, if we follow their course, carry us beyond this vale of sorrow into a far better land of promise."
I really really love this verse though because it tells us that the Lord really does have a way prepared for us to inherit our own land of promise. He has given us all of the tools so that we can have something far better than we ourselves could ever imagine. But just because he has given us the tools and showed us the path it is up to us to act and to take it. We are going to have struggles. Like it says we have to go through our own vale of sorrow. We have to conquer it but if we follow the course that is set before us our Father in Heaven promises us something far better. Something we couldn't even imagine.
Well, love you all lots and hope today is the best and you get lots of candy.(: Send some my way if you wouldn't mind(;
P.S. Sorry if I didn't get to respond back to you today I promise I will next week!
