Loving a small town



So I am really enjoying it here in a small town. For one thing every one goes to church, the owner of the house is in our bishopric, the stake president lives next door and our whole ward is pretty much within a three block distance. Secondly everyone has the greatest gardens not just vegetable but flower gardens, I was given these fresh cut flowers by one of the ladies I visit teach. I have Iris' growing in my front yard I will be sad when they are all bloomed and gone. Third in the summer the school district here feeds any kid under the age of 18 free breakfast and lunch everyday. We eat to early for the free breakfast but it is so nice to just take the kids up there and feed them lunch, London think it is so cool to go to the cafeteria, she is a big girl and does it all by herself. It is great not have to think of what to feed the kids for lunch not to mention the money I am saving. Oh yeah and I pretty much walk everywhere so a tank of gas could litteraly last us all month if we do not go anywhere out of town. Anyways just my thoughts on small town living.

A Million Dollar Question

I really liked your blog. Please read below and check out www.furtherthekingdom.com

The million dollar question: Will you go to Heaven? Here's a quick test. Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell. That's not God's will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. Jesus took your punishment upon Himself -"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus, and God will grant you everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it.

Thank you

We get free lunches too. I am so glad to see what your life is like in your new place and I am glad that you are happy with it. It is so fun to have such activity in the church around you. We have 3 other families that live on our street that are members.
