I have little time today. I have been writing lots of people and my sister Anna got engaged so I was losing it over that as well. Congrats to Anna and Stephen! I am very happy about it. Pas de soucis pour moi. Stephen is wonderful.
Things I experienced:
An exchange with elders in Perpignan. Service at the Boyault's. People called us a cult. *sigh*
An all you can eat Chinese buffet. Indigestion. Bloated feelings.
Lessons with J, our ami with a baptism date. All good things.
Things I remarked:
The little things mater! They make all the difference. In that sense, sweat the small stuff.
We have been given everything and FOR-given everything! So be grateful, and forgive others, because Christ forgave us much more.
Lessons I learned:
Enduring to the end is not just enduring, it is enduring well!
See people for who they can become, not who they are.
Love Heavenly father and His Son above all else.
(free) Advice I have:
"Three Towels and a 25 Cent Newspaper" by Richard Edgley & "The First Great Commandment" by Jeffrey R. Holland. Both excellent talks that will uplift you!
I love all of you! Have a great week! Thanks for all of your emails and letters.
Love, Elder MacArthur
