Come thou Fount....

This is another one I want you to close your eyes and really think of the words in your mind... and feel it in your heart! I thought it could start your week out right! We will be thinking of you constantly and we all love both of you sooo much!

Come Thou Fount
Come, thou fount of every blessing,
To my heart to sing thy grace;

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of thy redeeming love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer; 
Here by thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above

All will be well

This made me feel like no matter what "All will be well..."
I struggle through hard things I would be like that lady on the plane. Elder Nelson really made me feel like I have strength to overcome anything beyond anything I can image. I am so grateful for this message. It made me want to look at challenges different and completely trust in the Lord.

Reverently, Quietly

I want you to listen to this with your eyes closed!

If either of you ever are feeling overwhelmed, uneasy, sad, frustrated, alone, mad, etc.... close your eyes and listen to this song again. I know it will bring some peace! I love you both so very much.

Light of the World

I took this picture of the tree in my backyard. Every morning I wake up I look out my window and it's the first thing I see. Every time I see it I think of how blessed we are to have such beauty. I also think of our Savior. He is the light of the world. No matter what hard things we go through... IF WE LOOK TO HIM... no matter how dark it is around us, ALL darkness can go away. I am so grateful for little reminders like this- even from a tree in my backyard!

He Lives

This is why I feel you both chose to serve... I know you both know he lives. Thank you for serving and teaching me about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I have been thinking of you both a lot lately and especially thinking about how Mom was having a hard week last week. I wanted to do something for both of you and the only thing I know how to do is blog... So I am starting this for you so most everyday you will have a thought on here, a reason I have been blessed that you are on a mission, blessings of a mission, insights, etc. I know Mom you have been feeling a little down about not being with family or missing your grand children's birth.... watch this video and see what you would really be missing if you chose not to go on a mission.... I was so overwhelmed after watching this, I felt my heart was a bit on fire... The purpose of a missionary is to bring Heavenly Fathers children back to him. How incredibly proud your Father in Heaven must be of you both. It is hard not having both of you around or to talk to constantly- but I hope you feel as I did after watching this video. What is most important. I WILL be doing what you are doing one day... I can't wait to be able to go a serve his children... like you both! I try my best now but there is nothing like full time missionaries! And you both are one one of the greats. I love both of you so much and I hope this blog will bring you happiness when you have little times of homesickness. Or bring you comfort if you ever need it. Or just remind you everyday how loved you both are and admired for your constant example of selflessness and complete love for the Lord.
