Learning of Him
Today for District fun Day we carved pumpkins! And roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. I felt kinda apostate (The missionary term for doing non missionary like things, or feeling like you're not a missionary). It made me miss going to events/family reunions. Lots of memories wrapped up into just one simple act. But it was still lots of fun. The Elders would feed the ducks to try and get them closer then turn on the go-pro and chase them away. Indiana Jones style, without the umbrella. I was rolling with laughter by the time they got bored.
My pumpkin was amazing! I didn't keep it because we don't have a place to put it at our apartment! But I gots mes somes pictures. So I'm alright!
aint he cute?
So recently I've been doing this thing. It's kinda on the religious side, that's the only disclaimer that you're getting okay? Okay :D
Recently, to one up my gratitude journal I've started to write down who I am because of Christ and his atonement. It comes from my studies, promises in me patriarchal blessing, and other blessings I've received. Examples that I've written are...
am blessed am understood
am loved am saved
have hope can return
am not forgotten can be strong
That's just a few of the ones I've written down. So, friends, family, and others who stumble upon this blog. This is my challenge to you. Who are you because of Jesus Christ? He suffered all for you, how has that impacted your life? Write it down, put it in a safe place, and when you're down, upset, angry or have any unwanted feelings pull it out. It helps. I promise that if you do this you will see it affect your day in a positive way. I know this because it makes me happy just thinking about it.
I hope you all have a great week! Just keep looking up and remember that Heavenly Father is smiling down :D
Love, Sister Martineau
