So, last night, I was thinking about the week. We had had a pretty rough day, and I was a little down. But then I made a conscious decision to think about the good things that happened. By the time I got to the end of the week, I didn't even feel that I needed to think about the disappointments. Heavenly Father has blessed us with so much, and he does so much for us on a daily basis, that it by far outweighs the negative or the mistakes that we make.
So, some of those good things: We had two lessons with Eric, and he now has a solid baptismal date on the. He says that he has "definitely felt it," which is a huge step for him. He's ready to go! Mike and his wife Brenda both came to church again, and they are doing really well. In Sunday School, Mike commented that he knew that the Gospel is true, and that the Book of Mormon is true, and that he has been able to rely on that as he has been trying to help his wife progress. Speaking of his wife, Brenda agreed to sit in a lesson this week! That's huge progress for her as well. She's been to church 4 or 5 times, but we haven't had a lesson with her yet. So we're excited for the two of them.
Also, Graham Crackers and milk make daily planning so much better. :)
Love, Elder Plehn
