But this has been an interesting week.
One awesome thing, whilst walking in the road, my companion and i saw something that caught our eye. Two framed things of Marvel. Its like a collectors thing you put on the wall. Its like a picture but the figures jump out.
We bought them for 50 pesos. 2.5 dollars. The tag on the back, says 60 dollars each.
Thank you lady who had no idea what you were selling, Christmas just got a little sweeter.
Other than that, short thing i would like to share with you all.
I was reading in Alma 27, the part where Aamon and the sons of Mosiah find Alma the younger. It talks about how Aamon was so overcome with joy that he basically just fainted.
I was thinking, how can we receive the same joy? Long story short, i looked up the word joy to see what i could learn.
in spanish, the triple has something called the guide to study the scriptures. Its a little different than the index. But, like the index, you look up words, and it also tells you words related to it.
I looked up joy, and it all just clicked. in spanish, the only words that come with Joy are Obediencia, obedece, obedecer. or in english, Obedience, obey, to obey.
THE KEY TO BE OVERCOME WITH JOY IN OUR LIVES IS TO OBEY THE WILL OF GOD.
No wonder they tell us to keep the commandments and do what we know is right. There is no other way to receive such great happiness other than submitting ourselves to the will of our Creator.
I invite you all to read that same passage! Alma 27 16-18 i think.
we get transfers on Saturday, so ill let you all know where im at!! Love love!
