And then this morning I was also studying the atonement. and I thought about how the spirit works in so many different ways. And that the Lord really trusts us. One thing I am learning still is how the spirit communicates with me. Usually when I reflect back on my week I can pick out when the spirit was prompting me to do something because of the consequences. and lets just say that I've had a fair share of moments when I didn't listen. But this morning I just felt really blessed because I feel like God really trusts me and is helping me learn this lesson on how to listen when he is talking to me, and that if I can develop the habit of always acting instead of 'being acted upon' by my circumstances my days will be a lot better and the people I talk to can recognize me as a servant from God.
And on a funnier note, I started teaching our taxi driver the first lesson on the way home from cambios. he ended up being a preacher in another church and is like way anti'mormons. It didn't end up that fun. well okay he just used a ton of words that I didn't really understand (because they weren't very nice) and I just went with the old Madagasgar penguin deal, and smiled and waved kinda. because then he charged me double. dumb taxis. okay yeah it really was funnier that it sounds.
so have a good week. pretty pumped for mothers day.
also other semi funny note. it kinda got cold one night, so i got way excited and pulled out my blanket that i brought. That super thin one, oh wait the only blanket i brought with me to perú! well last night i woke up at two in the morning because i was sweating so bad. So the weather is changing really really really slowly. and hopefully i lost some weight??? probably not.
well, i love you soooo much!
