We always have amazing lessons in Sunday School, the teachers are so amazing! Ben and I really enjoy their lessons, so that was as usual, delightful. We did get a big surprise though. We found out we were getting a new bishop! So by the time Sacrament mtg. came 'round we were checking out who had family there to see who might be in the running. Not knowing the ward too well yet, we weren't really sure if we cared too much who it would be. Lucky for us, they called two of our favorite men in the ward to be the bishop and a counselor. We don't know the other counselor too well but I'm sure he's great! So that was definitely a wonderful end to our meeting. Our stake president spoke as well, I've only heard him speak twice but he is so amazing and I already just love him. It was the first time Ben had heard him speak, but he enjoyed him too. So when we came home I insisted we try and catch up on conference ( don't judge us, we still haven't seen all the talks yet, we missed them). One of the talks was by Neil L. Anderson on children. I loved sitting there with Ben listening to this talk. Every once in a while when Elder Anderson would say something particularly special Ben would squeeze my hand. We made cookies, read some hilarious things out of Ben's old journal, and made dinner together. I was just in a state of bliss. We have our struggles, money isn't growing from the tree in the back yard, Ben doesn't like his job ( which is really hard, if you've ever really hated a job), and you know how life just isn't always fair. But there is only one kind of fair. A fair is a place where you take your pig, and even through the struggles I feel so happy. Life is so good. Ashley Feller, you are right! Life is a wonderful thing and we are so blessed to live it! It felt so good doing things that centered around the savior yesterday in our home and we are making it a goal to keep it that way. Not just on Sunday. We want to fill our home with love and make it a place where the spirit can dwell. This gospel really is such a wonderful thing and I am absolutely Certain that we are so happy and blessed because we keep God in our relationship and try to live the way he wants us to live. He only wants us to be happy after all, we need to trust in him and always remember that!
Life is good, God is good, and so are those pumpkin cookies we made yesterday ;)
