What makes a baby go up,down, and loop-de-loop?
A stroller coaster!
I don't have a lot of time today. So here is a short and sweet email. Well...all of my emails are that way. First of all, I miss the snow!!! Everyone has signs that say "Let it Snow!", and it makes me really mad. It can't snow in Florida. "Let it Rain" would be more fitting. That is my little tangent for the day.
This week was busy! We had our mission Christmas party at the beach! I am pleased to announce my zone was the winners of the sand castle contest!
We were so lucky and got to go to "Night in Bethlehem", The Tampa stake puts together this huge live nativity every year. It is really popular. Everyone we meet says, " Oh I've been to the night in Bethlehem with your church." I really wanted to go, and to make it even better we got to go with a recent convert, and can I just say that I love her to the moon and back. Taylor is awesome! All of you need to meet her. You truly meet life time friends on your mission. And to think if I never came on a mission, I wouldn't have met her or anyone else that I have built a relationship with. I am eternally grateful for my mission!
On Wednesday we taught young womens. I love the YWs program. We talked about individual worth, I have been pondering that a lot this last week. If we all saw ourselves and others how our Father in Heaven did, the world would be a different place. It breaks my heart to see the youth think they are worthless. I mean we are all sons and daughters of a God! What is more powerful and motivating than that? We were created to be successful! We have a savior who makes that possible, and you have a Father in Heaven who knows and loves you! You always hear people say" I am trying to find myself", I am sorry but that is dumb. You are a child of God, that is who you are! you have to reach that potential by following Christ, It isn't about finding yourself, it is about making yourself!
I hope you all have a splendid Christmas! Remember the Reason for the Season!
1. Sometimes I think people see us, and fly away just like the birds in this picture :) It really happens. Yesterday someone saw us walking towards them, she stopped turned around and started walking in the other direction.
