The week rushed by with all the Nutcracker performances and other activities. On Thursday Baby Doll and I went out to run some errands. There are always errands... When we got back I decided we should have some lunch since it was 2:30 already. After we finished our sandwiches, I decided it was time to check my email. I was shocked when I saw Teach's name! And I missed her by about 3 minutes. If only I hadn't stopped to have that sandwich!
Anyway, the reason she was emailing on Thursday instead of Monday is because they had a chance to leave their area and attend the Dallas Temple. She was so excited about that!
I went to the temple todaaaaaaay. (: (: (: (: I just love that place so much. I didn't really have a specific question in mind I just really wanted to feel the love of the Lord while I was there. Which I did. While I was sitting in the session I began praying about what the Lord would have me do when I go home. I really just want to do and be where the Lord wants me. I just want to know what His will is for me.
She talked a little about her Thanksgiving and her love of the holidays.
|I'm even thankful for cooked carrots!|
And a little bit about the weather. I guess it can get pretty cold in Texas.
Yesterday it was 81 degrees. We were sweating.
Tonight there is supposed to be freezing rain which will leave 1/2 an inch of solid ice on the ground. High of 38 degrees.
I love Texas. (:
People in Texas don't drive/walk/run/leave their houses when it's icy/snowy because they don't have the ability to get rid of it. Sooo. we'll see how that works out. I'm not sure we can proselyte.... but our leaders will let us know!
They have many plans for the holidays, and one of them includes moving for a little while. They are living with a member family but they have a single son coming home from school so they can't live there at the same time. This is not a surprise, it just makes life a little challenging.
Anywayyyyy... We don't have specific Christmas plans yet because we don't know what transfers will bring. We have to move out of the Marx house for a couple days because their single-son will be home for Christmas (we totes already knew this would happen so we'll just stay at someone else's house for a while) but the Marx said that we are welcome to come over for Christmas morning. (: We aren't sure what else we have going... but it'll be exciting. I love the Marx. They are wonderful.
And one last thing you probably already guessed...
Missionary work is awesome.
