GOOD MORNING!:) What a wonderful day it has been already and its only . I LOVE that. This morning we took the ferry to the island and we are now currently on South Whidbey Island. It almost reminds me of McCall Idaho with the beautiful Evergreen trees and then the lake.. but instead of the lake we are surrounded by the Ocean. Its so unbelievably GORGEOUS as we are emailing at the moment i am enjoying the peacefulness of the view that we have. I truly feel like i am in a different country. I LOVE it, and with all that being said it brings me so much happiness to know that this world that we live in is so beautiful and its Gods creation. It was made for US. To live and to grow and to be tested.I will briefly go over the week.
WOW. I sometimes am still in shock that i am a missionary. That happened to me a couple times this past week. It is so neat to think that i know i am in the right place at the right time serving the people of Washington. I love love love missionary work. It requires everything that you have and at the end of the time it is so amazing to be able to account to the lord what we have done with his area. I know that i am just a voice for the Lord and that i am here to help them either come back on the path or find that path. The gospel is TRUE happiness, but that doesn't mean we do not have trials that test us. They allow us to stretch!
"the decision to change is your and yours alone"
Let us all strive to remember our true purpose in this life and strive to become more like the savior in our thoughts and in our actions...
one more quote.. so sorry i have just been all over the place..
"the true success of the gospel of Jesus Christ will be measured by the spiritual strengthen of its individual members."
I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Love, Sister Norton:)
